    Aliased folder on apache


    I wanted to change my images folder, so I put this in httpd.conf:
    <IfModule mod_alias.c>
    Alias /icons/ /usr/share/apache/icons/

    <Directory /usr/share/apache/icons>
    Options Indexes MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    </Directory>

    # Alias /images/ /usr/share/images/
    Alias /images/ /var/wwwFiles/images/

    <Directory /var/wwwFiles/images>
    Options MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    </Directory>
    </IfModule>

    Then I saved it went to restart apache. This is what I got:
    root@Linux800:/home/mark # /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
    * Forcing reload of web server (Apache2)...
    (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
    no listening sockets available, shutting down
    *able to open logs [fail]
    root@Linux800:/home/mark #

    Here's how I'm calling my images:
    [img]../images/mars_1.jpg[/img]

    My bad, the folder was /var/www/images/ and I didn't need to restart Apache2, I'm running 1.3, so I had to do the apache restart. Duh to me.
