Subject [greenstone-users] Problem accessing graphics

Using Greenstone 2.82 under Windows Vista I had no problem accessing
Greenstone through my existing Apache server on the same machine (using
the httpd.conf parameters in the Intaller's Manual). However when I
installed Greenstone 2.83 in my home directory and removed the
apache-hppd directory for the bundled Apache server, although I could
access Greenstone via Apache the graphics did not show (even when I used
the httpd.conf parameters from the bundled Apache, which are nearly the
same as in the Manual).

This problem can be solved by replacing the line:

DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/htdocs"


DocumentRoot C:/Users/John [my Windows home directory]

That is, even though I have an index.html file in the Apache htdocs
directory, the default httpd.conf paramaters do not work.

I suggest that this problem be clarified in version 2.84, either by
changing the default Apache parameters and/or the user documentation.

Best regards, John
