Deploy App outside of htdocs for Apache

The Apache Web Server usually requires that you deploy applications in the htdocs directory. Hwever, sometimes it is useful to have Apache point to a different location on your file system, for example a ‘dist’ folder. To do this, make the following two entries in the http.conf file:

  1. Alias /my-desired-url C:/myapp/dist

  2. <Directory “C:/myapp/dist”>
    #
    # Possible values for the Options directive are “None”, “All”,
    # or any combination of:
    # Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
    #
    # Note that “MultiViews” must be named *explicitly* — “Options All”
    # doesn’t give it to you.
    #
    # The Options directive is both complicated and important. Please see
    # http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/core.html#options
    # for more information.
    #
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

    #
    # AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
    # It can be “All”, “None”, or any combination of the keywords:
    # Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    #
    AllowOverride All

    #
    # Controls who can get stuff from this server.
    #
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

    </Directory>
