Ok, I'm trying to put an alias in my httpd.conf file in order to access a mapped network drive. I have Apache set to logon in service mode with a username that has access to said network drive.
Here's the relevant part of the .conf file:
Alias /mediaFiles/ "X:/Evaluation & Measurement/English Certification Test/Student DATA/" <Directory "X:/Evaluation & Measurement/English Certification Test/Student DATA"> Options Indexes MultiViews AllowOverride None Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
Now here's the weird part. When I start apache from the command line, it runs just fine, and I can even access the aliased directory. When I try to start it with the Xampp control panel, it starts, then dies right after. No errors logged in the error log, nothing. Just dies.
Has anyone had a similar problem or have any ideas how to fix it? I guess I could run it through the command line if I have to, but I would really rather be able to run it through the control panel if possible.
Thanks for any help you can give.
