Its all the same server - I just want a sub-domain to point to a folder 
within my server

IE (from my actual live website)

Is the same as (example - ive forgotten the 
actual URL - LOL)  is the same as  is the same as

Its all just URL redirection to subfolders

I know it works on the Apache server of my main website.

Ive d/loaded & installed Apache at home, - As I find it very inconvenient 
to change CGI scripts when my existing home server doesnt support subdomains.

Im trying to Find a suitable coding that works on the Apache server at 
home, & at the live website - with Minimal or preferably - no changes 
needed - when uploading..

Hopefully, When I get this 'problem' Fixed.. I can re-start programming on 
a few CGI scripts & I'll be instantly shown the results of any changes - 
Without needing to constantly upload 10-20-30 Kb CGI scripts to the websites

ok - Hope that makes it simple..

Ok -  in my httpd.conf file I have (not including the dots)
<Directory "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/icons">
     Options Indexes MultiViews
     AllowOverride None
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from all



Alias /manual "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/manual"

<Directory "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/manual">
     Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews IncludesNoExec
     AddOutputFilter Includes html
     AllowOverride None
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from all

And a couple of other places - and a line on its own line - somewhere else 
in the file :-

     AllowOverride None

shall I turn them all to      AllowOverride All

 From what I gather in your email - This is important..

Ok - Im off to bed now (3 a.m. here) will fix it tomorow when i get back
