Apache :: Document Root Must Be Directory

Jun 2, 2014

In httpd.conf I have

DocumentRoot "C:/Programme/Apache_Group/Tomcat-8.0.5/webapps/ROOT/"

2.4.9 is complaining about this having to be a directory. It is definiteley. I can browse it with explorer.

When I change this to "C:/Program Files/..." it works.

Why is that? In the stock Win32 server I downloaded from the apache site I did not have to make this change.

Apache Document Root On Linux

Sep 5, 2007

Basic question: does it matter where I set the document root for apache on a Linux system? I've googled this but haven't found a good answer.

This is for a VPS server running the Ubuntu (Debian) server os that I'm configuring. I'd prefer to simply create a new directory off the root and set that as the document root in the apache config file. Would this present any kind of security issue?

If that's no good, what's the best choice -- stick to the default?

Apache :: Cannot Change Document Root

Oct 26, 2013

I just made a fresh install of the following :

Apache 2.4 (x64)
PHP 5.5.5 Thread Safe (x64)
OS: Windows 8.1 (x64)

And I think everything is working. When openingen I see the apache message that the server is running and when executing phpinfo() it displays the PHP info.

My problem is that I'm trying to change the document root.

I have change the following in the httpd.conf:

DocumentRoot "C:/Apache24/htdocs"
<Directory "C:/Apache24/htdocs">

The lines abowe have been change to:

DocumentRoot "D:/www"
<Directory "D:/www">

After this I did a reboot of the apache server using the CMD httpd -k restart. I even tried restarting using the apachemonitor and rebooted the whole server. But apache still loads the files from c:/Apache24/htdocs

I can't find any more entries with htdocs to change. What am I missing?

Jan 2, 2014

I have home a server Apache. I want to put all my party songs in one partition and can listen from anywhere without having to take CDs. I have my site in C:Site and the songs I put it in D:Songs.

In php I see the D:Songs directory, I can read subdirectories, I see the .mp3 and .Wav files, I created the playlist, but the audio player doesn't start.

If I move the songs files in C:Site or C:SiteSongs goes perfectly, I can listen my music, but I do not want to be there.
Why I see in D:Songs, but does not want to go? In httpd.conf I have:

DocumentRoot "C:/Site/"
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all


<Directory "C:/Site/">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride all
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all

I try to put also:

<Directory "D:/Songs/">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride all
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all

bud does not work. "What Can I Do"?

Apache :: Applying Root Directory Attributes To All Subdirectories

Feb 18, 2013

I am running Apache2 server (version 2.2.16) on Debian Linux.

My document root for directory listings is set and in that folder I have a few other files to configure the formatting and visual effects. These are:


These files make the root directory look very nice. If I navigate in to a subdirectory, all of the formatting and visual effects are lost and the standard text layout is shown. Is there a way I can get ALL subdirectories in the root directory to take on the visual and layout effects from the root directory?

I know it works if I manually copy each of the files to each of the subdirectories which would be fine, but the subdirectories are created dynamically and new ones are added regularly.

I installed a centos4.7 with ISPCONFIG2 control panel, but any account I create it points to the documentroot of apache.

On the /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf the document roots are :
Document Root /var/www/web11/web for xxx1.com
Document Root /var/www/web10/web for xxx2.net

but when i type ant site, it goes to : Document Root /var/www/

Document Root And File Permission

Jul 21, 2008

I am running a LAMP server, working to get everything configured and as secure as I can make it. I have been trying to decide weather to change the document root to a different directory, or if it would be better/worse or more/less secure to chown and chmod the current directory.

Any input would be helpful, I just don't want to overlook some small detail as this is my first time handling a server on my own.

Document Root Default In Plesk

Dec 18, 2008

Document root default in Plesk

I bought a new plesk and created new domains. For some odd reason, all the domains are looking at the default document root.

Rather than going to the domains document root

I checked the /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/conf/httpd.include, the document root and all are fine.

I also tried creating vhost.conf and assigning the document root there.
/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/websrvmng --reconfigure-vhost --vhost-name=domain.com -v

It is also not working...

Where Domain Document Root Settings Are In CPanel?

Feb 11, 2008

I've done some manual change of document root in httpd.conf for a user. I know that now, I don't need to to manual change since user can set there own folder!

Now, If I rebuild Apache, he will re-do all the configuration to the original one. Where can I find the settings for domain document root so I can change it and EasyApache will rebuild the httpd.conf correctly?

I don't want to remove the domain since I'll lost all email account!

Document Root Change (e.g. /home/newfilehere/

Aug 2, 2008

On my VPS I currently have:

/home/admin/public_html/ as my website root.

However, I plan on running multiple website (not linked whatsoever) on the server. I have LXAdmin and HyperVM. Is it possible to get additional files, such as:


then etc..


Is this possible? Because, would each need its own IP for the DNS?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Nginx Does Not Recognize Changes (Document Root)

Nov 12, 2014

There is a bug in the current Plesk version 12, which was encountered on many of our Plesk 12 server until now. I do have Plesk 12.0.18 Update #23 with CentOS 6.

When a customer changes for example the document root of a domain nginx does not recognize it and the administrator of the server do have to restart nginx manually.

This issue is serious because CSS, JS and images are not working on such a page where a customer changed the document root. Nginx is throwing 404 error until nginx is restarted manually.

Other customers do have the same issue: [URL] .....

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: How To Change Document Root With Web Applications Installed

Feb 8, 2015

i am relatively new to Plesk, i ordered a vserver with Plesk a couple of months ago and spend a lot of time setting everything up and developing several new websites. I am used to developping new websites on a hidden adress (sth like domain.com/dev/ instead of the top level) and then switch the document root to point to the hidden directory when all is done. This practice has served me and my clients well for the last 10 years.

Using the Plesk features like built-in applications seemed like a good idea at the time but wanting to switch the new websites live i have now found out that Plesk won't let me do this since..It is impossible to change document root because there are web applications installed on this website.

I had read somewhere on the interweb that the v12 would let me do this so i just spent the better part of today updating to v12 .. but alas no luck, the limitation is still there. Is there a way to remove this limitation ?

Apache :: Why All Virtual Hosts Route Back To Same Document

Oct 7, 2014

I am trying to configure Apache 2.2 on Linux Mint 17 ( derived from Ubuntu 14 LTS).

I am wanting to create a variety of localhost sites all for development. One of those is built on Laravel 4. I have followed every tutorial I can find yet, for some reason which I do not understand ALL my sites route back to the Laravel root document when called from the browser. Just don't get it.

Here is my hosts file:

Code: localhost vince-XPS-8300 auburntree example

Here is the Laravel conf file:


NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin mail@shaw.ca
ServerName auburntree
DocumentRoot /var/www/auburntree/public

ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

Here is the alternative "example" conf file with just "hello world" in it.


NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin mail@shaw.ca
ServerName example
DocumentRoot /var/www/example/test.html

ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

Both conf files have been enabled.

Apache :: Emulate Error Document Using Rewrite / Rewritecond / Redirect

Jun 23, 2015

OS - 2.6.18-274.7.1.el5
Apache - 2.2.29

Is there anyway to emulate the functionality of the ErrorDocument using rewrite rules, redirects, rewrite conds or other methods.

I'm trying to create a 404 page that can use dynamic variables (not allowed in ErrorDocument), that serves a custom 404 page and also logs a 404 in the HTTP status code in the logs.

I can achieve one or the other but not both as the ErrorDocument does.

Apache :: Permissions For Web Root

Sep 1, 2014

My web server starts from /var/www/xxx/xxx/

I have installed phpmyadmin, and i tried placing the folder both in /var/www/xxx/xxx/ and /var/www/ and neither seem to work.

How I can get it to show up in the /var/www/xxx/xxx so i can just access from my.site.name/phpmyadmin

Even more preferred would be keeping it in the /var/www/ folder, but still being able to access my site at my.site.name/index.php and my phpadmin by my.site.name/phpmyadmin

Apache Ignoring <Directory>

May 17, 2007

I am trying to get Apache to disable .htaccess overrides and php for a certain directory (and it's subdirectories).

I can disable PHP scripting using a .htaccess file containing:

Options -ExecCGI -Indexes

I now want to disable .htaccess overrides, which Apache's documentation says is only possible in a <Directory> directive. I have therefore attempted to add the following to the website's Virtual host in httpd.conf:

<Directory /home/ceejayce/www/dropbox/*>
AllowOverride None

However, the above posted .htaccess file (which is located in /home/ceejayce/www/dropbox/2007/.htaccess) still runs and disables ExecCGI and Indexes. So, it looks like the <Directory> directive is not being processed? I have tried it outside the virtual host, straight into the config file - but it works the same way.

Apache's error log says nothing, other than ExecCGI is off in this directory and Directory Index is forbidden (so basically it's reading the options from the .htaccess file and applying them).

I want to make a folder than can only serve static content (no php etc).

Apache Directory Listing

Jul 21, 2007

May be this is a stupid question, but I really don't know why I can't list the files in the root folder of a website(I didn't put any index.html or index.php in the folder).

I point my domain.com to /home/user/docs, the server can list domain.com/test/ files. But it can't list the files of domain.com/. It just shows the page at /var/www/htm, if I don't have any index file under /home/user/docs.

I have this in the httpd.conf file:

<Directory "/home/user/docs">
Options +Indexes
allow from all

Apache :: Need To Locate A Directory

Jul 10, 2014

When I enter my_domain.com the browser displays index.php located in httpdocs on my server. When I enter my_domain.com/main/ the browser displays another page, but there's no directory "main" in my httpdocs. Somehow it's redirected to another location (but in URL bar in the browser it's still my_comain.com/main/). I need to find that location.

As I searched through the web, such redirection can be made in .htaccess file, but I can't locate this one either. My server is Apache on CentOS6, and httpdocs directory is located in /var/www/vhosts/my_domain.com. I searched for .htaccess in several locations that I googled, I also tried executing "find / -type d -name '.htaccess'" on PuTTy, but it gives no results.

Apache :: How To Setup Directory

Apr 20, 2014

When I open my site in a browser and I point the URL to specifically // ipaddress / location A it's all good. (Apache Server)..My problem is, if you open the site in a browser with just the IP address alone it goes there for a second and then automaticlly goes to and opens the other site in location // ipaddress / location B.

However, what I need it to do, I think, is edit the apache conf file to make it open location A as the default. What do I need to do in the apache (httpd-conf) to fix that? For that matter is that the right file to edit?

Apache :: Rewrite For Any Directory

I would like to write a rewrite rule that does the following:

Redirect 301 URL...

So what I want is that the first url is rewritten to go to the second ..I have a whole bunch of links that I have to redirect, so I would like to place them all into one .htaccess file or into the default configuration file of apache. So what I do not want is to create SomeFolder1 and someOtherFolder2 and to place a .htaccess file into that place in order to make it work. In fact I want to ignore the folders of the old link and only use the pagename.
