    WAMP install to different document root Link to this post

    I have successfully installed WAMP and SS 2.2.2 to my PC using vanilla settings.

    However I like to run my environment with software (eg WAMP) running on C: and all my data (eg www) on D:

    So I changed the Apache httpd.conf for the new document root directory;

    DocumentRoot "d:/"

    added the other recommended code;

    <Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all

    and ensured mod_rewrite was enabled etc

    When I attempt to install following these changes I get the dreaded mod-rewrite errors so often talked about in the forum and a 500 Server Error if I try to 'proceed anyway'.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
