Hi,

I am on Windows, so no symlinks. I want the following scenario.

http://mydomain/ goes to E:/www/mydomain
http://mydomain/files goes to E:/files/mydomain

This is simply so my files directory can live out side of subversion. Any clues what I need to put in my vhosts file to achieve this?

Regards,
Michael

So, you have "mydomain" configured as a vhost, with its DocumentRoot set to "E:/www/mydomain", right?

What you want to add in that vhost config is an Alias, e.g.:
    Alias /files  "E:/files/mydomain"

You will also probably have to add a corresponding Directory section, e.g.:
<Directory "E:/files/mydomain">
    Options Indexes
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>

Hi,
Not through  htaccess but via
httpd.conf

ServerName .....
Alias /datafiles E:/files/mydomain
      <Directory "/datafiles/">
            AllowOverride None
            Options None
            Order allow,deny
            Allow from all
      </Directory>

And u will get ur datafiles on ur webserver

Microsoft has symlinks, they just call them "junction points".
I actually use this a lot, especially with SAN array disks to divide up particular directories to actually be contained on separate FC drives.  Will work the same way for what you are trying to accomplish.
