Postby Jati Nurohman » 28. May 2013 03:18

Hi everybody, can i use my windows partition to place my document root? i wanna change my document root into my windows partition, i have tried to use symlink, and also manually change it, but I always got same problems, "access forbidden". but when the document root is placed in htdocs on /opt, i didnt get a problem. (i use Linux Mint Debian Edition and Windows 7/Dual Boot). can anybody help me? thanks.

Of course you can set DocumentRoot to the Windows Partition. But you should not use symlink, simply point to the mountpoint and folder you need.

And most important (and this is quite surely the problem): the UserID which executes Apache (see "User" in httpd.conf) MUST HAVE sufficient rights in the filesystem to access the partition.
