how to alias???

Postby roosnanie » 07. June 2013 21:12

I need to make an alias for the htdocs How do I do such? I am trying to save my code to a folder (php13) that I have set up for my summer semester of PHP... :oops:
xampp version 1.0.1
macbook pro
is this the part I am to change?
Code: Select all
#
# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
# documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
# symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.
#
DocumentRoot "/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs"

#
# Each directory to which Apache has access can be configured with respect
# to which services and features are allowed and/or disabled in that
# directory (and its subdirectories).
#
# First, we configure the "default" to be a very restrictive set of
# features. 
#
<Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    #XAMPP
    #Order deny,allow
    #Deny from all
</Directory>

#
# Note that from this point forward you must specifically allow
# particular features to be enabled - so if something's not working as
# you might expect, make sure that you have specifically enabled it
# below.
#

#
# This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.
#
<Directory "/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs">

Is this the line of the file that I change?
<Directory "/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs"> to look like <Alias "/php13/DEANNA'S/php13/"> OR DO I ADD THAT LINE UNDER THE DIRECTORY LINE? PLEASE AND THANK YOU .. DeAnna

No, you don't change anything, you have to add the Alias line.

Using all caps is considered yelling => Netiquette. I don't answer any yelling questions.
