Hi, new to the community

Hope someone could help me please.

I have a wordpress installed with wpthree broadcast. On this account i have many addon domains, I used addons so that I can have access to files from other domains within the group without going outside my directory and running in to permission group permission issues.

For broadcast to work I have to set the DocumentRoot to the wordpress install which works well.

However, this means that other directories such as /forums/ do not work as it keeps resolving to the DocumentRoot which points to wordpress

I guess i need to use Apache includes so I need to know how to use the Includes Editor to make an alias for the forums. See below

DocumentRoot /home/domain/public_html/wordpress/
Alias /forums /home/domain/public_html/addon-domain/forums/

Wordpress is in main account and the addon domains all have forums so I need an alis to make sure the forums load as they should.

How would I do this with Includes, or is their a much better way (without redirection)

cheers

i have created a custom conf file and added it to the include path

ran the script /scripts/ensure_vhost_includes --all-users

This then unhashed the include path.

Saus it built the httpd.conf fine

But it still does not work

In my conf file it says

Alias /forums /home/username/public_html/addon-domain.com/forums/
Alias /legacy /home/username/public_html/addon-domain.com/legacy/
Alias /public /home/username/public_html/addon-domain.com/public/
Alias /images /home/username/public_html/addon-domain.com/images/
Alias /media /home/username/public_html/sharedresources/media/


Would this work?

Hello,

Could you elaborate on the configuration you are looking for, with specific examples? For instance, do you want /forums to work on all addon domain names and go to the same location?

Thank you.

Hi

I managed to get this working by using the hashed include in the httpd.conf

I added my aliases

Then used /scripts/ensure_vhost_includes --all-users which found the new conf file

worked a charm.
