I set a network with a physical machine and a virtual machine, both with Windows 7.
I set an apache server in the virtual machine to listen in port 80, now it's working if I set DocumentRoot inside virtual machine (same one than Apache Server), but I would like my documents to be in physical machine directory, and if I try to set DocumentRoot in a network directory I get an error in Event Manager saying DocumentRoot must be a directory.
- In the Apache machine I added this directory as a network unit, like Z:/myfolder
- In the physical machine I set this folder as Shared and give permissions to All for reading and writing
I'm not very good configuring networks so I may be missing something about permissions or whatever, but when I open this folder in Windows explorer I'm not prompted for login or anything.
