Hi Jagguy

Are you running a Local webserver? If yes, is it IIS on Windows?

Yeah okay that is just a installer for wampserver.

You just run the files using localhost:

http://localhost/yourfolder/yourfile.php

Either change the wampserver config to point where you want it to point; change the location of your files, or change all the hrefs to use a path that traverses from wampsers default to your folders.

My files for php are located in e:/program files/easyPHP/www

I want the dir of this moved so I can run php files from another dir. In Php.ini or httpd.conf how do i do this again exactly?

I want to run php files in e:/website/<another folder>

The files have to be under the root.  The wampserver directory is the root.  The server cannot access or see what is not below it in the hierarchy.

You cannot do localhost/e:/website...

It must be localhost/website... and the website foler must be inside the folder where the serve is.

Hi,
To change the default 'site folder' in Apache, you need to right click on the icon on the Easyphp icon on the taskbar and select configuration->Apache. This will open httpd.conf in a notepad window

Find DocumentRoot and the section: DocumentRootDirectory and modify the path to your preferred path, Where you find the default path.

Pay attention to Where to use '/' and '\'

This is what i did to make it work but the VirtualHost

DocumentRoot "D:/code"
(...)
# DocumentRootDirectory
<Directory "D:\code">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
 </Directory>
 (...)
 NameVirtualHost 127.0.0.1
 <VirtualHost 127.0.0.1>
   DocumentRoot "D:/code/"
   ServerName localhost
 </VirtualHost>
