    Don't want to use windows paths - I want UNC paths instead

    Hello!

    I want to get rid of the windows paths and have just simple UNC paths. In the end this makes it easier for me to traverse back through document root so i don't have to copy the same file to multiple locations in sub-domains.

    So where I have D:/www/ftsc-v3.0/teams/blueflames would become /www/ftsc-v3.0/teams/blueflames

    D: is not a network drive and ..

    my server root is C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2
    my doc root is C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/htdocs

    I never sever any files from the document root everything comes from virtual host D:\www\<folder name>

    Mind you this is my test server. My hosting sever runs linux so I'd have no issue there with the paths. Granted I could just run the server in a virtual machine but I also use apache to server as my media server. I rather make life simple and have apache in one place. =)

    Below I left the link to a DropBox share has my current httpd.conf file and my two virtual host conf files.

    I need some education on this one! Hope somebody can school me on this one!

    Appreciate the time and effort, many thanks in advance!

    Regards,

    Dave

    I solved this on my own.

    I had to create an alias. I'll leave this post here for posterity and humility
