So far, I worked with IIS. So I can map network drive and create a virtual directory from the maped drive.

Now, I have moved to Apache, but I don't know if Apache can do the same thing. Can anyone tell me? If can, how to do it?

Thanks in advance.

Now, I have got a litle bit understanding about virtual host.
I created a port-based virtual host as below, and it is working fine.

Listen 8080
<VirtualHost *:8080>
ServerName graph.3tel.com.kh
DocumentRoot "C:/Temp"

Note: C: is local hard drive.

But when I changed DocumentRoot to "Z:/Temp" where Z: is a maped drive, it was not working. And I got the following error message:

The page cannot be found
The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.


Did I miss any configuration? Or anything wrong? Please help.

Kind Regards,

DocumentRoot "Z:\Temp"
