 Wildcard Alias / Dropbox Sync, Need to sync files across multiple machines. (1 Replies, Read 2522 times)

Issue:
I manage somewhere around 60 different sites. At any given time, I could be using one of three computers (office, home office, laptop).

Question 1:
Is it possible to move ..\ampps\www directory outside of ..\ampps?

if not, Question 2:
Is it possible to setup a wildcard alias that would pull the site from an external directory (ie: Dropbox).

if not, Question 3:
Obviously, I can setup an alias for each site but with 60+ sites, three different computers, this could take awhile. Any advice to simplify syncing the files?

I refuse to switch from ampps. I've tried them all, and it is by far my favorite.

Yes. They are possible but you will have to do it everything manually by referring Apache Manual. You can move Ampps/www directory outside Ampps by changing DocumentRoot directive in httpd.conf

Sorry. Currently you can add only one alias at a time in AMPPS.

If all your 60 site names and directories have same pattern you can write a PHP script and create a conf file. Then just include that conf file in httpd.conf. You can get the alias pattern from "path/to/Ampps/apache/conf/extra/alias.conf". First add an alias from AMPPS to get the pattern.
