Not to sure if this is a PHP question or an Apache question.
Ok here it is,
I have multiple sites set up on a “dev” server (wamp) on my machine like so:
And in each of those sites is an “includes” directory where I store all my php data that I would like to link to ala $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].’/includes/filename.php’
However... I currently have to add the site directory into the path: ‘/siteone/includes/filename.php’. So when I move it over production, I will have to change every path name before I do so. And I don’t want to do that. There will be many of these!
So... My questions are:
1. Can I create an Alias to each one of these directories for all my sites on my “dev” server: Alias /includes /siteone.com/incudes ?
2. If so, will the call to &_SERVER[‘DOCUMENT_ROOT’] .’includes’; actually work when I am testing.
3. Will one Alias cancel out another one? Like if I am testing sitetwo.com and siteone.com is listed first in my alias, will that cause sitetwo.com not to work?
I am a long time web designer slowly turning web programmer (translation: n00b), so I am not sure as to what route to take. And if you have any suggestions as to how to approach this in a completely different way, please share.
