WAMP install to different document root




4 November 2008 at 8:55am Community Member, 3 Posts

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.
