[Solved] change document root

Post by forstera »

sorry, another question ...

so everything working fine now :)
So, I wanted to change my document root because I need to access my phpmyaq using an adresse like http:/myserver/phpmyfaq and I'd like to be able to reach my server just by http://myserver.
so,in httpd.conf, I changed the value of

DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/phpmyfaq"

but when I'm trying to log on my server, I get the following error :
The requested URL /phpmyfaq/ was not found on this server.

It seems there's something with relative paths and I should modify it but didnt found where for the while ...
Thanks for your help

the document root is stored in the admin configuration and in the .htaccess file.
