Just to reiterate I'm new here and "simply" trying to upgrade from a fully working Apache 2.2/PHP5.3/MYSQL5.5 setup on Windows 7 using XAMPP.
The original Apache setup had several domains example.localhost example2.localhost ... set up to mange website development on the local server - Everything Prefect.
New "projects" were simply added by editing the conf\httpd.conf file with the line "Include conf/extra/httpd-examplex.conf"
and the new file /httpd-examplex.conf created and added to the extra directory.
To upgrade to XAMPP the extra *.conf files were copied from the old Apache2.2 backup to XAMPP/Apache/conf/extra and the httpd.conf amended to indicate the includes.
The Apache server was shutdown and restarted from the Control Panel without any obvious errors.
Entering examplex.localhost in a browser results in the following
[an error occurred while processing this directive] You don't have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server. [an error occurred while processing this directive]
a typical httpd-examplex.conf is as follows:
ServerAlias www.examplex.localhost www.examplex_info.localhost www.examplex_uk.localhost www.examplex_co_uk,localhost
CustomLog "D:/WEB/examplex_info/htdocs/logs/access.log" common
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
Allow from all
It may be relevant that the html/php files index.html etc do actually reside in the D:/WEB/examplex_info/htdocs directory (nothing has changed there) and yes the D: is a different volume. All attempts on all of the virtual hosts result in the same error. and yes I am running with admin (Full) access.
Has something changed with Apache 2.4 setup ?
Thanks in advance.
