Hey guys, sorry to bother you with some rather elementary woes. I am using the book Beginnings PHP5 and MySQL E-Commerce and am stuck at Chapter 2.
My default folder for Apache is C:/htdocs. I created a folder C:/tshirtshop, created a simple php info page in this folder, and have added the following code to my httpd.conf Apache file (I am providing context, so my code is in bold)"
Allow from all
# Redirect: Allows you to tell clients about documents that used to
# exist in your server's namespace, but do not anymore. The client
# will make a new request for the document at its new location.
# Redirect permanent /foo http://localhost/bar
# Alias: Maps web paths into filesystem paths and is used to
# access content that does not live under the DocumentRoot.
# Alias /webpath /full/filesystem/path
# If you include a trailing / on /webpath then the server will
# require it to be present in the URL. You will also likely
# need to provide a <Directory> section to allow access to
# the filesystem path.
# ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts.
# ScriptAliases are essentially the same as Aliases, except that
# documents in the target directory are treated as applications and
# run by the server when requested rather than as documents sent to the
# client. The same rules about trailing "/" apply to ScriptAlias
# directives as to Alias.
Alias /tshirtshop/ "c:/tshirtshop"
Alias /tshirtshop "c:/tshirtshop"
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/cgi-bin/"
I really appreciate your dedication and assistance (hopefully I will eventually become skilled enough to return the favor). I am running Windows XP Professional SP2. PHP version 5.2.
