.htaccess: determining the base directory

Postby legrega » 02. December 2011 18:37

I've need to access files with absolute addressing that is statring with src="/pic/image.gif"
because I use permalinks on my website.

How do I tell apache that my subdirectory /var/www/calivita is the root directory for accessing files under any subdirectory in /var/www/calivita/...?

I just wanto to access /var/www/calivita/pic/image.gif with url /pic/image.gif ... Is this possible?

Ive put .htaccess filee in /var/www/calivita with this line:
RewriteBase /calivita
Ive also tried
RewriteBase /var/www/calivita

but it doesn't seem to work
And I also restarted apache everytime I did some change (IS THIS NECESSARY??) but it just doesn't seem to work.
Please enlighten me on the matter!

I'm hoping you are running "XAMPP/LAMPP", is that correct??? What version of LMAPP???

If you are running LAMPP, your files should not be in /var/www, they should be in /opt/lampp/htdocs.

We only provide support here for XAMPP/LAMPP Apache issues. THis is becasue XAMPP/LAMPP does not work like a standard 'LAMP' Apache installation.

Good Luck

XAMPP 1.7.7 on win7 x64

WHY have you posted this in a Linux Board??? Please update your Profile in the User Control Panel

In answer to a very strange question -

The paths you are describing are LINUX/UNIX paths - they won't normally occur in a XAMPP installation unless you created them under htdocs. \xampp\htdocs is the Document Root in all Windows installations, unless you have changed it in httpd.conf or have set up Virtual Hosts. The Document Root is normally the 'starting point' for figuring out where a .htaccess file should be placed.

If you are asking questions about what to do on a non-xampp Linux install, this is not the right place - period, the question belongs on a different forum, this forum exists to answer questions relevant to XAMPP on each of its OS platforms.

Good Luck

Ive really do not want to impose but am sure this is an xampp issue...
I have dual boot wiht linux xampp and am currently on win7 with xampp.
Is it possibly to say in .htaccess file that the root directory is actually considered for one subdirectory like htdocs/project1/
and how to define htdocs/project1/.htaccess to access htdocs/project1/css/main.css as /css/main.css [note the first backslash before css]?
I've tried program file /xampp/htdocs/project1/.htaccess with:
RewriteBase C:\xampp\htdocs\project1\
and also in linux with
RewriteBase /xampp/htdocs/project1/

but it doesn't work. Please help me, thanks i advance, Grega

An Apache Alias directive might do what you want - as I recall they can be used that way at a folder level.
