Here's a question that I'd normally just solve myself with some testing, but I'm just looking for a quick yes or no before I get started with what I need this for.
I'm working on a VERY large website network that will have around 100 websites minimum included. All of the site data is stored in the DB, and the sites will all have the same look and feel / template, all of the PHP functions I will be using will be global to every site, and not just one.
What I want to do is share the two main directories that I have the "static" php scripts, includes, and images in.
Using the Apache Alias command I think this will work fine...
My question is this, since the Apache documentation is very brief on the Alias command, I want to make sure I'm understanding it right.
If I want the following directories to be shared by all sites, I figure I'll drop in a .htaccess file that looks something like this:
Alias /images /var/storage/path/www/shared/images Alias /includes /var/storage/path/www/shared/includes
Will this direct ANYTHING within the "images" directory to the path on the server?
For example, I like to set up my images directory with several common subfolders. (icons, template, banners, etc.) So if I attempt to call the image site1.com/images/icons/icon1.gif, will this pull from the /var/storage/path/www/shared/images/icons directory, or would I need another line in the .htaccess file for each of the subdirectories?
