Hi Stephan,


In order to get the right sort of files, first of all remove the "/" at the
end of the path where the <Directory "d:/lyrics"> = that's how it should be,
without the last "/".


Try it and let me know if anything else you might need help with.


All the best,

Jeff Cohen

Subject: [users@httpd] Newbie: W2k / Apache Configuration



I just downloaded Apache and installed it on my W2k machine. Installation
run smoothly and the server runs.

However I need to achieve two things on which I have not found an answer yet
upon doing 2h of research.

1.) I currently have installed the Apache DocumentRoot as DocumentRoot
"C:/Programme/Apache2/htdocs" and I'd like to include a directory of
different lyrics for songs in it. However that is located at D:\Lyrics where
all my file storage takes place. According to the manual I must do this with
an Alias command. So I entered this into the config:

Alias /Lyrics/ "D:/Lyrics/"

<Directory "D:/Lyrics/">
    Options Indexes MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

I also restarted apache server after saving the config file. However when I
access localhost I just see one text file that I have put into the document
root. I'm sure it's only some small problem but I just can't find out what
it is. The rest of the apache config is untouched. I just added those few

2.) Is there a way to make a .htaccess protection of folder in W2k? Is there
some other way to restrict access to some user / pwd list?

Thank you for your help!
