Subject Re: advanced Config ???
Date Sun, 21 Apr 2002 17:23:08 GMT
This document seems to explain most of the .htaccess functionality and appaers 
to have been written using windows directory paths:

This document has information about your password stuff, you should look it 
over, unfortunatly you will have to make due with it being directed at a *NIX 

This page has most of the stuff you need to note in a windows install:

As for your path problem (4) I belive your httpd.conf has your root web 
direcotry referenced to the *NIX path rather then the Windows path, easiest 
way to fix it would be to perform a search and then replace the line with the 
proper string.

Hope you find that helpful,
