  1. Also, I just now tried to set the localhost documentroot to D:\Website_Root That works fine. I can browse http://localhost with it set up that way. But if I try to browse http://localhost/mkp I get the same 403 Forbidden error. I have checked the windows permissions and as far as I can tell they are exactly the same (i.e. \mkp inherits its permissions from \Website_root\) This is really odd. I'd love to get to the bottom of it. Jonathan YAHOO!!! Solved.... Okay... figured it out. In my development files I had the .httaccess file from the live site. This was causing the issue. Renamed that file and voila, it works. Whew. Nice. Ric and co... thanks for the help. Really nice of you. Cheers, Jonathan :-)
  2. Thanks for the help. I greatly appreciate it. olajideolaolorun -- Thanks. I did already have that uncommented. Ric -- I've set it up as you described. Same result though. In hosts file I have: test.org In conf file I have: <VirtualHost *> ServerName test.org DocumentRoot D:\Website_Root\test </VirtualHost> When browsing to http://test.org I get a 403 Forbidden error "Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server." Just like before. By the way, it as when I set up the Vhost using the US interface that the double \\ was put into the path. Why does it do that? Is there some particular permissions in windows I must add to the folder in question? Also, I have an index.html and index.php file in the root of test directory so at least one of those should be pulled up, right? Thanks, Jonathan
  3. Update. I've figured out that I am able to put any directory location into the Vhost setup. Correct? I've set up what I thought would work. But when I go to http://testsite/ all I see is the purple/blue Uniform Serve logo page. So there must be something else I need to do. Here is what got added to the httpd.conf file: <VirtualHost *> ServerName test1 DocumentRoot D:\\Website Root\\www.testsite_1 </VirtualHost> I used the UniS admin Vhost setup panel to do this. It has also put the appropriate entry into the windows hosts file. Any ideas why this has not work? Does the space in the folder name stuff things up? To test if that was the case, I renamed the directory to d:\WebsiteRoot\test1 So my httpd.conf entry now looks like this: <VirtualHost *> ServerName test1 DocumentRoot D:\\WebsiteRoot\\test1 </VirtualHost> Now when I try to go to http://test1/ I get a 403 Permission Error: ------------ Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server. ------------ I think I'll wait for those with more experience to point me in the right direction. Thanks, Jonathan
  4. Hi Folks, I am real pleased to have discovered Uniform Server. When I use to develop ASP based sites I was able to set the Windows web server to map site directories from a location outside the www root. In my case I had (and still have) all my development files in a folder called "Webroots" which is at D:\webroots\ My Documents maps to D:\ on my computer as I like to have all user files on one partition separate from the OS and Apps. Anyway... on the windows server I somehow had it so that each site was pulled up from its folder under d:\webroots The advantage of this is that I only needed to keep one copy on my local machine, rather than a development copy and a testing copy. I'd like to know if there is any way to do something similar in Apache on US ? I've got as far as setting up virtual host in US but that's not quite what I'm after. I don't want to have two copies of each development site locally, nor do I want to move my developement sites into the /udrive/www/ folder because all my development apps are configured for these sites to be where they already are. Is it possible to do what I want here or am I singing with the angels on this one? I'd greatly appreciate some tips on how to solve this one. With thanks, Jonathan
