Thanks for asking UbuntuForums for your problem. As for Ubuntu solution, you can simply change your server to use Ubuntu instead and install LAMP Server packages (LAMP = Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP).

Regarding the issue on pointing your website to link to your files in another drive is not a big deal in Ubuntu or linux. You can simply create a link from your web root to your other partitions or directories by this simple command in your web directory:


ln -s /media/myotherdrive mylinkname

and then you can simply use that link which act as directory on your browser as if you copy all the files in that directory like this:

http://mycomputerdomain/mylinkname/mybigfile.mp3

As far as I know, this is not possible in Microsoft Windows environment. So, Good luck!!

If you are using apache you could create virtual websites that point to those directories. The way to do it using a linux distribution is to do as the above poster said is to create symlinks to the directories in question..

It might better if you asked this question in Other OS Talk (/http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=147)
