Hello, I'm currently trying to configure my server so the online manual will be accessible through the browser. The manual is located in the /httpd/manual directory. The absolute path to the manual on my machine is
/home/int420_081a24/httpd/manual. I'm having some issues configuring the Alias for the manual.
I simply get a 404 not found error.
Here is what the Alias section of my httpd.conf file looks like. Any help on how to resolve the error would be appreciated. Thanks
Alias /manual "/home/int420_081a24/httpd/manual"
Allow from all
# Redirect: Allows you to tell clients about documents that used to
# exist in your server's namespace, but do not anymore. The client
# will make a new request for the document at its new location.
# Redirect permanent /foo
# Alias: Maps web paths into filesystem paths and is used to
# access content that does not live under the DocumentRoot.
# Alias /webpath /full/filesystem/path
# If you include a trailing / on /webpath then the server will
# require it to be present in the URL. You will also likely
# need to provide a <Directory> section to allow access to
# the filesystem path.
# ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts.
# ScriptAliases are essentially the same as Aliases, except that
# documents in the target directory are treated as applications and
# run by the server when requested rather than as documents sent to the
# client. The same rules about trailing "/" apply to ScriptAlias
# directives as to Alias.
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/home/int420_081a24/httpd/cgi-bin/"
