    Hi
    (that seems to be the one that works)
    I am a total newbie and help would be greatly appreciated.
    Apache on win 32 (i guess on any os)
    I am trying to store files on a secondary hard drive, d:
    My installation is on croject
    locally it works fine. I click on a link for a song..bahda bing, here comes the file.
    I sit at my other pc with it's own ip connection to the internet so i can view the non local website and i get errors
    just a link to info on this topic would be appreciated
    thanks

    Did I do something wrong?....
    Does my breath stink?....

    I would really appreciate a response.
    I guess my question is does apache have the ability to serve files outside of it's root directory in fact from a different hard drive alltogether without using sql or some script language....?

    okay so i figured it out at http://www.arsetechnica.com and their open forum.
    i will post my results so some other sap like me does not have to go through this crap even though it was easy.(if you pay attention to what you read)


    ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts.
    now let me see if i get this
    the scriptalias directive will do what exactly, oh..wait i think i get it look
    # ScriptAliases are essentially the same as Aliases, except that
    # documents in the realname directory are treated as applications and
    # run by the server when requested rather than as documents sent to the client.


    alias is the directive i need ...
    shouldn't it be alias not scriptalias and i could serve an index from d: as if it were the doc root?
    i think so ...
    and yes it was
