URL Bug in Uniform Server


Recommended Posts

In the most recent two versions of Uniform Server (didn't check further back), if the website root has a directory called docs and you try to access it via a browser (http://localhost/docs/index.htm), the page is not found because the server looks in its own 'udrive/docs' directory for the file. You can see this if you type http://localhost/docs in the browser -- you get a list of all files in udrive/docs. I could not find a config or .htaccess problem here. I am complying with this site's directive to post it here before reporting it as a bug.

It’s not a bug you can tailor the server to meet your own requirements hence if you want a “docs” folder in the server root edit Apache’s configuration file. Change Uniform Server’s docs alias to something else.


For example:

Edit file: UniServer4_3\UniServer\udrive\usr\local\apache2\conf\httpd.conf

Locate this line (552): Alias /docs "/docs/"

Change to: Alias /uni_docs "/docs/"


Browser links become:

http://localhost/uni_docs/ -- Uniform Server documentation

http://localhost/docs/ -- Your server root documentation


All the best
