how to make apache see my website in a diff folder?

HI,

I have a folder on my d: drive called d:\mysites for example.

How do I setup an alias so I can view my sites in the "mysites" directory??

In my Apache Config file (httpd.conf)

I have:

#
# 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 "someDriveLetter:/Inetpub/wwwroot"

I also want to use an alias and keep my document root the same as I have sites there as well.

I could easily move the code under the document root, but wanted to see if I could have code in two different areas and have it all served up under http://localhost


Any help appreciated.

i do not know about the windows setup but still am hazarding a guess.  there should be a directory called conf.d in your directory that has the httpd.conf (check one level up )

you can simply create a mysite.conf and add the following to that file.

# redirect to a folder which has all mysites folder

Alias /mysites   /path/to/mysites/in/a/different/folder


effectively, this will give you a redirect prompt.  you can access the alias so created with http://localhost/mysites/  which will be the above directory.

http://localhost shall continue to be your default folder.

am not sure with the windows setup again.  check if this works or else wait for someone else who knows the stuff to comment.
