alert: newbie! apache question


why can i view my RH9's default apache page from another PC on same network, but not the squirrelmail login page (which i can from the RH9 box itself)? is there a setting in httpd.conf or elsewhere i may have accidently misconfigured that causes this?

That's quite a difficult question to answer without more information.
1) What error do you get
2) Can you post any relevant (things that you have changed/added) parts of httpd.conf
3) Do you have a ".htaccess" file in your squirrelamil folder?

haha, sorry! again, newbie on the loose. after sifting thru documentation, i found that the default URL was different than what i was trying. so there wasnt anything really wrong except my igorance! but on the subject of .htaccess files, what's the syntax for creating forwarding URLs? for example, i'd like to be able to enter www.example.com/webmail instead of the full URL (www.example.com/webmail/src/login.php - this is squirrelmail). and where does that that file go? thanks!

You could either use an apache Alias directive or a rewrite rule:

By the way, squirrelmail automatically sets it in the default php file so that if you go to www.example.com/webmail, it'll redirect you to the correct login page.
