Using Alias and Directory

Postby eric99 » 20. December 2014 20:57

Good Afternoon,

It's probably something simple. I'm trying to set up a location out of the Document Root from which I can display webpages. I'm running Windows 8.1, Xampp Control Panel v3.2.1.

Alias /fabius-ny "f:/websites/fabius-ny/public_html"
<Directory "f:/websites/fabius-ny/public_html">
Order allow, deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

Apache returns an error message:

2:51:40 PM [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
2:51:40 PM [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
2:51:40 PM [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
2:51:40 PM [Apache] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
2:51:40 PM [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
2:51:40 PM [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this
2:51:40 PM [Apache] entire log window on the forums

Probably something simple eh?

Replace:

Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all

with:

Require all granted


You may want/need options or allowoverride in there as well

But this definately not a reason for Apache to shutdown. There must be a different problem as well.

Thanks all. Require all granted did the trick. Looks like the apache manual needs some updating?

The Apache manuals are up to date
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mo ... ml#require
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

It's like porn for programmers 8)
