Subject [users@httpd] Changing DocumentRoot Doesn't Work
Date Wed, 06 Dec 2006 22:37:27 GMT
I've installed Apache 2.2 as a manual server (ie, I have to open the 
httpd.exe command window to use it) on Win XP Pro. The installation 
works fine when I visit:


However, I am now trying to change my htdocs root, because I keep all my 
data one the E:\ partition of my HD. I have changed the following 2 
lines in my httpd.conf file:

DocumentRoot E:/Documents/htdocs/bj

(I have tried the line above both with and without quotes)

<Directory "e:/documents/htdocs/bj">

I then close the httpd.exe window and reopen it -- to restart apache.

However, Apache still serves the file from the default htdocs directory, 
rather than the file in "E:/Documents/htdocs/bj"

I have cleared my cache and tested on 2 different browsers.

What am I still missing?
