1 Solution

This can be easily done with a single configuration directive:

Alias /images "E:\complete\path\to\the\folder"

You will have to activate mod_alias; More info here http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_alias.html

ok its working,

my next question is how can do the same thing with a network directory
you could do one of 2 things:

- map the network drive like Z: for example
- install Apache on the second server so the images are available from the first server like, for example, and in the first server use mod_proxy like this:

ProxyPass /images

More info here: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_proxy.html
