Apache and aliases


First off, let me apologize if this is located on this board already. I couldn't find it. What I'm trying to do is have my Squirrelmail login.php come up when I type:

http://www.mydomain.com/squirrelmail

Right now I have to do this:

http://www.mydomain.com/squirrelmail/src/login.php

Can someone explain how to create this alias/shortcut so I can do the above?

you can use an apache redirect directive. it goes something like this:


Redirect old-URI new-URL

so in your case try: /squirrelmail/src/login.php http://www.mydomain.com/squirrelmail


let me know if this works.

i dont know about the differences but the Alias directive works in the same way. you would do .



Alias /squirrelmail/src/login.php /squirrelmail

ok so the redirect or alias is working, your server just dosent recognize php files...

do a search for that login.php file, thats the one you want to load on default. try locate login.php.

let me give some more info...it may be a config problem:

Squirrelmail directory:

/var/www/htdocs/squirrelmail

Squirrelmail login .php location:

/var/www/htdocs/squirrelmail/src/login.php

This is on slack 9 and I installed both the apache2 and apache-php slack packages and then added squirrelmail, so I don't have any virtualservers set up other than the default server.
