I am very sorry if this bugs someone as I really did not go through more than the first page of this forum but I know that I would have found it helpful instead of being stuck for an hour as windows did not tell me anything reasonable to start solving the problem with.

If you don't install a2t on c: disk, the conf file generator has forgotten to change one disk identifier in httpd.conf file.

in this section:

Code: # Control access to UserDir directories.  The following is an example
# for a site where these directories are restricted to read-only.
#
# You must correct the path for the root to match your system's configured
# user directory location, e.g. "C:/Documents and Settings/*/public_html"
# or whichever, as appropriate.
#
<Directory "F:/Documents and Settings/*/public_html">
    AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
    <Limit GET POST OPTIONS PROPFIND>
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    </Limit>
    <LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS PROPFIND>
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all
    </LimitExcept>
</Directory>


As you see, it recommends and generates the conf to be on C: drive instead the one I did set during installation. In the actual conf rules I have replaced the C: to F:, the disk a2t is installed on my machine.

Looks like easy bug to fix.

I am very sorry if you consider this post as junk and if so, I would kindly ask the admins to remove this topic.

Thanks.

the code commented out with the # sign, is just that comments.
The configuration data that doesn't start with a # is what is used when starting apache.

to test your configuration for errors you can do the following.
start -> run -> cmd.exe
httpd -t
OR
apache -t
(depending on the version of A2T you are using).

yes, no discussion there.

I just wanted to point out that the section of the code that is not commented out, contained C: before I had to change it to F: manually

thanks

Sorry, mis-understanding. There are many different skill levels present at the forums, and some don't know about such things (although most do). It's always best to start at the beginning.. so to speak.

Anyways, thanks for the information.

first of thanks harrymanback for the notice
however the problem is a bit complicated to fix
i take it you have windows installed on drive F too ?

the path there is a assumption on windows's Documents and Settings folder and it is not changed with apache2triad install path because it has nothing to do with it

i guess section in the script should be added to detect the windows driveletter and change that path acordingly

topic flagged for next release
