virtualhost

Hi gurus,

I have the following questions about Virtualhost settings.

Here 's my case:
https://secured.mysite.com   (with SSL)
http/www.mysite.com  (without SSL)

There are two paths for the said stuff.
www:         /home/mysite/docs/html
secured:      /home/mysite/secured/

How about images? Assuming my path for images is /home/mysite/docs/images/ , how can I share in virtualhost?

I wanna have both
http/www.mysite.com/images/123.gif
and
https://secured.mysite.com/images/123.gif

derived from the same path for images? So both path will use the same image file on the same path. How can I make it? Do i have to set those SSLENABLE or SSLDISABLE?

Thanks in advance!

Manfred

Define directory aliases in each of your virtual servers for "/images" URL to point to the same physical directory.

Since you've gone to the trouble of creating two virtual servers, I'm assuming the SSL one has content that needs to be kept private. If you have some images that need to be also need to be secure, such as images of documents that should only be delivered to authenticated users over a secure channel, you should not keep them in a combined images directory, even if you've disabled directory listing. Remember that people bookmark stuff, and may not access secure images through the secure virtual server.

Thanks a lot hfraser!

For example there's a contact form with SSL and we expect  the layout of the page look more or less the same as other pages without SSL. That's why we want to consider something like sharing images/js/css for both secured & non secured stuff.

Then aliases are the way to do it. Something like:

Alias /images/ "/home/myysite/images/"

<Directory "/home/mysite/images">
    Options MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>

in the confguration for both virtual servers will do this.
