  Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 1
Subject:   Outgrown hard disk space-How to overcome it

I would be thankful if anyone can advise me how to configure Apache in Mac OS X to overcome the default hard disk limitation.


I handles huge number of digital photos in the website (a necessity). I had outgrown the default hard disk capacity. I wish to configure Apache web server to look for Index.html or secondary level HTMLs in an external hard disk instead.


Can somebody please help.


Thanks in advance.

    Use a symbolic link. You can create one in terminal using the 'ln' command:

    Do this:

    Type 'cd ' (notice that space at the end) and then drag and drop you website root folder from the finder into the terminal window then press return.

    Type 'ln -s newImageFolder ' then drag and drop where your new image folder is on the other hard drive. Press return.


    That should have created a symbol link called 'newImageFolder' and when you open that in the finder, it should go over to the new image folder if itis working correctly.

      Thanks for your advice.

      I apologise for not responding to you earlier.

      I will work out your advice. Hopefully, it does work for me.

      Thank you once again.

        Will this make it a permanent change? (that is, will I have to perform this operation each time I reset the system?).
