Phpdev Question


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to change the root folder when using phpdev as a home testing server? I know how to change it in my html editor (DW MX)...but it doesn't work just changing it there. I'm assuming something in php.ini would need to be changed or something with Apache settings?????

Search for httpd.conf and open it with wordpad (probably at C:\phpdev\Apache\conf if you did the installation without any changes to the path etc.) don't use notepad cause it jumbles up all the text making it diffcult to read.


Look for


# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
# documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
# symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.
DocumentRoot "C:/phpdev/www/"


and change the DocumentRoot "C:/where/ever/you/want/it/to/be" and that should do the trick.
