Newbie: Confusion over documentroot

Postby johnlochness » 12. March 2010 22:06

Hi,

Just started out with Apache and have installed via xampp.

Apache, php and mysql all working fine, but I'm confused about how I define htdocs in my httpd file.

The install comes with documentRoot defined as DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs" which is needed to pick up the xampp control panels, including phpmysql, but all my web pages are defined in /my documents/my webs/ and I'd prefer to keep it that way.

How can I define both locations in my DocumentRoot.

Sorry if this is a dumb question but I've been searchin the web and these forums for hours and am getting no-where.

John

If you want to have several different directorys served by Apache which aren't subdirectorys of each other, you had to define VirtualHosts. Otherwise Apache can't identify exactly which directory you request
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
