I am a little stuck and appreciate your advice.
I have set up an APACHE2 web development server using Ubuntu 13.04 and have also set up SAMBA for file sharing. I have successfully managed to set up shares for folders / files, but what I was now trying to do is set up a file share for my web site address, so as I develop the site I can edit the HTML / PHP files directly off the server.
Basically I followed the instructions given to me in one of my previous questions but the result is not the same! I can "see" the share in W8 but when I try and access it I get told by Windows the "site name may be mispelled".
Here's what I have done:
1. Created a new folder for my test site at /etc/apache2/sites-available/opencart
2. Added the smbd.conf the folder specifications:
3. restarted both smbd and nmbd
comment = Ubuntu File Server Share For Web Server
path = /etc/apache2/sites-available/opencart
browsable = yes
guest ok = no
read only = no
create mask = 0755
read list = lf
4. Set up access rights to the folder (for user "tm" as owner, only user with rw access, others can read only) as follows:
sudo restart smbd
sudo restart nmbd
The result is I can "see" the share but Windows cannot connect to it and says it may be mispelled.
sudo chown tm:tm /etc/apache2/sites-available/opencart
sudo chmod 755 /etc/apache2/sites-available/opencart
Thanks in advance for any help you provide.
