Apache will not start with DocumentRoot set to network path

Postby Coastalguy » 11. August 2017 20:34

I am trying to set the DocumentRoot to a network path, so I can access my databases from both my desktop and laptop. However, whether I use the IP path (\\192.168.x.x\folder) or a mapped drive letter (W:\folder), stopping and restarting Apache, Apache will not start. Only resetting it to a local drive, will it start. The network drive is available under File Explorer and other application "open" options. So I am not sure why it will not recognize a network path.

Because maybe the user Apache is started with has not sufficient user rights to access or write to this path.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
