Yahoo iPage web hosting and site builder?

Click Here To View All Answers...

Quick question: Yahoo iPage web hosting and site builder? Hoping for any comment. Another question on my mind: Ok I am running Apache 2 on my XP Machine at home I have 3 hard drives and I want to be able to put links on my web pages that go to different folders and files that are on different partitions on different drives. I can't seem to find any info on this so if anyone would be willing to help with the correct syntax and if needed any configurations that need to be mad to http.conf in Apache I would apreciate it..

Thanks in advance.

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

Comment #1

As long as the webserver has mapped the drives that it wishes to reach (mapping a drive is a windows term), then the webserver can reach the drives...

Comment #2

Yes apache is installed as the local host. I have DSL with an public IP. DocumnetRoot for Apache is "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/htdocs".

And ServerRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2".

Hope this clarifies what I was asking more and answers your question..


Comment #3

As long as it is setup as localhost then nobody can get in and you can't go out..

Nobody on the outside can access or localhost, that is only accessible on the local machine only...

Comment #4

Ok not sure if I should put the ip up here or not due to there might be some unscrupilous people around but oh well..

If you direct your browser to ( my external IP) it will show you my index page then if you go to my resources it will take you to another page both which are on my C drive now at the top of the page are web links to other web sites I go to alot. at the bottom are local directories that I want to have access to and they are on the F: drive..

Here is my httpd.conf file for apache:.

What am I doing wrong I even tried aliasing in the conf file on the tuts one..

Any help will be most apreciated.


Comment #5

Nope, you can't do it that way. when you put links like that on the net it is looking for the users f drive, not yours. you will have to use virtualhosting or something. if that doesn't work then you can't do it..

Virtual iPage hosting will make it so you type your ip and then the folder which will actually be a drive..


And folder1 is actually your f: frive..

Like I said in my first post, you might not beable to do it on the web..

Comment #6

Ok Thanks I will look more into virtual hosting. I guess if that don't work I could always reinstall Apache to that Drive and see If that works..

Thanks again.
