apache and samba shares


hi there!
i want to access to my samba shares index (or contents) trough http.

something like this: http://mysambaserver/public/, and it lists the public share contents

i read something about aliases...i wrote this in the httpd.conf:

Code:
Alias /public/ "/mnt/public/"
      <Directory "/mnt/VAS/storage/public">
      Options Indexes MultiViews
      AllowOverride None
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all
      </Directory>
but it won't work!

thank you so much!

why do you declare first "/mnt/public" and later "/mnt/VAS/storage/public"? which one contains your samba share?

Firstly it would help if the alias pointed to the same place as the Directory directive.
Secondly, the desired directory must be world readable (755).

hi there and thank you both!
you two are absolutely right...my mistake (i think) while writing the post...the share is /mnt/VAS/storage/public.

well, at work i have this virtual machine running samba and apache. Now i'm at home and i can't tell if i wrote it wrong here or in the httpd.conf file:/ humm....

so, while i don't get back to work (tomorrow ) this code should work

Code:
Alias /public/ "/mnt/VAS/storage/public/"
      <Directory "/mnt/VAS/storage/public/">
      Options Indexes MultiViews
      AllowOverride None
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all
      </Directory>
with public being world readable... right?

tomorrow i'l post here if i made it!
thank you both

I could not resist to post this.

If you are somewhat concerned of who accesses your "public" directory, then try this:
Code:
htpasswd -c /.mypasswordfile guest
Fill in the password when prompted.

Put this in your site file, inside the Directory tag:
Code:
AuthType basic
AuthName "My public shares"
AuthUserFile /.mypasswordfile
Order allow,deny
require user guest
satisfy any
Of course, .mypasswordfile may reside anywhere on your disk, but it has to be readable from the apache service account.

thank you!
