Created a site on SP Farm with explicit managed path lets say for example
I have an apache server, which receives all the incoming request from internet and then routes to the appropriate server where the request is destined.
For SharePoint currently it has to route all the request from http://www.foo.bar.com/
(i.e. from the / root) to SP WFE. The reason being SharePoint uses bunch of 12 hive directory using its absolute path from root (confirmed using http watch tool).
On the other hand for other applications the request are routed using relative path or URI
in this case /bee
The question is how i can use URI i.e. route all request using /sp (URI) to SP WFE from apache and all SP page are server relative to /sp .... What i mean is when the request is being served for SP site it should never use the root (/)
