Apache and XAMPP config files

Postby vicpug » 25. April 2004 01:46

Hello,
I would like to change the root apache serving path to be windows root c:
so I make these two changes in httpd.conf

DocumentRoot "C:"
#
# This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.
#
<Directory "C:">

and this works well for most things, except for the XAMPP web application which gets started by splash.php. This still navigates via the old path. Many thanks for any help. Is there an easier way to allow Apache to use extra paths to serve. ie mambo installs into C:\mambo and other products install into other directories?
many thanks

Hi,

I think set DocumentRoot to "C:"' is a very bad idea.
DocumentRoot and Directory must have at least one slash "/":
DocumentRoot "C:/" | <Directory "C:/">

Is there an easier way to allow Apache to use extra paths to serve. ie mambo installs into C:\mambo and other products install into other directories?

Code: Select all
Alias /mambo "C:/mambo/"
<Directory "C:/mambo">
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

you can access mambo now with:
http://localhost/mambo/

setting your docroot to the root of a drive is BAD!!!!

Wiedmann has the right idea.

Yes - using Alias is spot on , many thanks for the perfect solution. yes using C:\ is a BAD idea.
