I'm busy creating a software depot on our intranet. basically it's a site where people within the company can browse for software for various platforms, and download. I want to create an alias in my virtual server.
The documentroot for my server is /var/www/html/software
The alias I want to set up is:
Alias /downloads/ "/var/www/downloads/"
Thought when I try to follow a link such as
I get an error about no permission. Is this because the alias points somwhere "below" my documentroot, or is there something else I need to add to the httpd.conf ?
