Hi Guys, I hope someone can help, I'll give as much background as I can.
I have an Ubuntu LAMP serving an Intranet (Joomla et al) that I will need to get the following to work on.
The domain is controlled by MS SBS 2011 in a 10.0.0.* address space
On my (Win7) desktop I have a development copy of the Intranet running WAMPSERVER.
Everything is fine....
However, I want to point to files that sit in different locations on the network (I do not want to upload them to Joomla - just not practicable)
I am trying to achieve this (on the development system for now) using symlinks (which despite a lot of reading clearly I do not fully understand)
I have placed a folder in the same root as my test document, called workdrive
I have also created c:/testfolder/testwork/
my test document consists of
I have a test folder as described below.
<a href="file:///workdrive/readme.txt" >file</a>
in the workdrive and the testwork folder I have a text file called readme.txt (with different text in them) - neither open from the test page.
I have the following for an Apache alias directory entry (WAMPSERVER runs okay with this entry)
What am I doing wrong? I'm I doing it right, but WAMPSERVER does not follow the rules? Once I get this working I need to test it with network shares and then implement it on the Ubuntu LAMP.
Alias /workdrive "c:/testfolder/testwork/"
