Redirection to new folder?

Postby LoganDark » 08. December 2013 02:24

Welcome.
I am looking for a way to redirect user to a new folder, instead of C:\xampp. that gives away XAMPP and I want to make it look like I'm doing it myself.
For some reason I keep getting this temptation to uninstall XAMPP and install something else, because I want it to redirect to C:\Website instead of C:\xampp.

I havn't tried the meta type="refresh" method yet, but I don't think it will work?

Confused at what exactly you are trying to do but sounds like you want to change your document root folder within httpd.conf

if you ant to use another document root for your web page project, you can keep xampp on its usal installation path "c:/xampp" and use the vhosts dirctive. You'll find the configuration file in "c:/xampp/apache/conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf".
