Netjuke: Adding music directories to apache


I am trying to get netjuke running for a music jukebox on my LAN. So far I have gotten mysql, apache, and netjuke working with some 'test' mp3 files, however, I now need to add my entire mp3 collection, which resides on a fat partition, to the database.

What I need to do is add the mounted partition where my music is located to the apache server, But I am unsure how to do this, or if it is even possible. What do I have to include in the httpd.conf file, and what options? Thanks in advance.

Well, I figured out that I can symlink from a directory already in the apache tree to my music directory on the fat partition, but from my browser it still doesnt link me to that directory. Instead of a directory, the browser only shows a link file which cannot be accessed. I also tried mounting my music directory to the apache web folder using mount --bind, but I still cant access it. I think all these problems have to do with permissions. I am a little confused because apache assumes user nobody, netjuke assumes root (I think), and mysql uses root and/or mysql users. AAH!

I think I figured it out. By default, fat drives mounted from fstab arent given full permissions. So, I added the line 'umask=000' to that partition's options, binded my music directory to the apache root directory using mount --bind, and now I have access. One more question, is there some way to bind the directory automatically at startup, like an extra line in fstab? Boy, I'm having a great little conversation with myself in this thread.
