Alias TAG virtual host

Postby d_raghu9 » 06. January 2011 04:24

Hi there,

i have been struck on this for a looooong time now :-(, Basically my "Alias" tag is not working in my c:\xampp\apache\conf\virtual-hosts.conf. Url http://raghu.tkiportal works OK but http://raghu.tkiportal/simplesaml DOES NOT. The directory structure for Alias tag exists in my localhost (i checked)

This is my setting for one of many sites

Code: Select all
    NameVirtualHost *:80
    <VirtualHost *:80>   
   AcceptPathInfo On
   ServerName raghu.tkiportal
   Alias /simplesaml C:/xampp/htdocs/tki_portal4.2/extension/feide/lib/simplesaml/www
   DocumentRoot C:/xampp/htdocs/tki_portal4.2
   <Directory C:/xampp/htdocs/tki_portal4.2>
     Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
     AllowOverride None
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from all
   LogLevel debug
   ErrorLog C:/xampp/apache/logs/raghu_tki_portal_error.log
   CustomLog C:/xampp/apache/logs/raghu_tki_portal_access.log combined
   ServerSignature On
   RewriteEngine On

   RewriteRule ^/var/([^/]+/)?storage/images(-versioned)?/.*  /index_image_tki_portal.php [L]

   RewriteRule !(^/design|^/var|.*/storage|^/var/storage|^/var/.*/cache|^/var/cache|^/extension/.*/design|^/kernel/setup/packages|^/packages|^/share/icons).*\.(gif|css|jpg|png|jar|js|ico|pdf|swf|mov|html|xml|xsl|htc)$ /index.php

Do you guys see any fault with my settings? The same setting works on linux box.

Any help would be very much appreciated...Thanks guys

Does the \xampp\apache\logs\error.log file hold any clues?

Any error messages in the browser?

Try wrapping your Alias in <IfModule alias_module>:
Code: Select all
<IfModule alias_module>
Alias /simplesaml "C:/xampp/htdocs/tki_portal4.2/extension/feide/lib/simplesaml/www/"
<Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs/tki_portal4.2/extension/feide/lib/simplesaml/www">
AllowOverride All
# or what ever other directives etc. you need like permissions order allow deny etc.

Some Alias examples can be found in the \xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-xampp.conf file.

If that fails to work then drop the <IfModule alias_module> wrapper but wrap all the paths in " "

Full paths in Windows Apache conf files should be wrapped in " "

Good luck and I hope this helps.
