Since Windows Vista you can create Symlinks in Windows too, but i wouldn't.http://technet.microsoft.com/en-US/libr ... 94(v=ws.10
Not sure I understand alias completely though - if I create a folder in \htdocs\ called folder2, would I then use the following code:
- Code: Select all
alias /folder2 /folder1/folder2
If you create a folder in htdocs, you don't need any Alias, because that folder can be requested already (it is inside of the DocumentRoot).
Alias is helpful for directorys saved outside of your DocumentRoot.
You can see some example usage of Alias in your \xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-xampp.conf

Somewhere inside a Apache configuration file. This could be your \xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf or for example a configuration file created and Included into your httpd.conf yourself.
