It’s been 10 years of using Google Chrome. I still remember my first encounter with Google Chrome, when I was working in Taiwan.
A lot of things happened in these 10 years, new technologies born and die, companies rise and fall, from HTTP to HTTPS, from IE to Google Chrome, from PC to mobile, from blogs to Facebook then Instagram…
Years ago, I developed PHP in Windows using IIS (Internet Information Services) as web server. I had no problem to setup virtual directories under IIS because I could just right click the web server and click Add Virtual Directory.
However now I am using Apache in Windows XP, I need to configure the virtual directory manually by editing httpd.conf file. The reason why I want to setup virtual directories is because I want to concentrate my projects code in drive D:\ instead of C:\inetpub\wwwroot\ or C:\xampp\.
After searching Google and read few websites, I have my answer on how to configure virtual directories, here is code to be added in to my httpd.conf file:
Alias /krova "D:\projects\krova"
DirectoryIndex index.html index.php
allow from all
After restarted my Apache server, and pointed my browser to http://localhost/krova/, it works!
Downloaded Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) last night. Burned into CD and had a quick test with Live CD. It’s greatly improved, now I do not need Google all around just to get my TP-LINK TL-WN321G wireless adapter to work, the driver is included and it just run! 😀
Need to find a time to install and use it, before that, settle my pending stuffs first. 🙁
