I have a RoR application that runs in
/var/rails/redmine, and would like it to appear as a subdirectory in my Apache server (primarily so I can use a SSL certificate and not muck around with subdomains).
My httpd.conf currently has a
<VirtualHost> directive with the DocumentRoot set to the Redmine install; this works fine when I use redmine.www2.domain.com as the url. I'd like to be able to use www2.domain.com/redmine, but am unable to get the alias to work.
I've tried adding an
Alias /redmine /var/rails/redmine/public line to the config in a few places, but so far it only gives me errors (usually cannot access directory) when I go to the path. I've seen a few references to having to set some other paths for mod_passenger, but I'm unable to find information on how that works exactly.
Is there a way to give the RoR app an alias and have it appear to be in a subdirectory, or should I actually move it there, or is there a better solution?
