I have added an alias in httpd-xamp.conf as follows and restarted Apache.
Alias /WebRoot "/home/milnea/Data/WebRoot"
AllowOverride AuthConfig Limit
Allow from all
but when I try to access http://localhost/WebRoot I get the error:-
You don't have permission to access /WebRoot/ on this server.
I have also tried to access it via http://localhost/WebRoot and http://localhost/WebRoot/index.php5 but still no joy.
The error log shows:-
[Fri Mar 23 18:37:09 2007] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (13)Permission denied: access to /WebRoot/ denied
What can I check?
