So I have this media server and we'll be attaching different drives for each year but can't figure out how to make a virtual directory pointing to another drive in Apache. The way I have it set up now when trying to hit x.x.x.x/2010/01/whatever.jpg I get a 403 Forbidden error. In the error.log I'm seeing "client denied by server configuration: E:/www/media/web/assets/01" but notice "2010" isn't in there...shouldn't it say E:/www/media/web/assets/2010/01?

Code:


#---------------------------------------------#
#  2007-2009                                  #
#---------------------------------------------#

<Directory "D:/www/media/web/assets/">
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>
<VirtualHost x.x.x.x:80>
    DocumentRoot "D:/www/media/web/assets/"
    ServerName yo.com
</VirtualHost>



#---------------------------------------------#
#  2010                                       #
#---------------------------------------------#

<Directory "E:/www/media/web/assets/">
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>
<VirtualHost x.x.x.x:80>
    DocumentRoot "E:/www/media/web/assets/"
    ServerName yo.com   
</VirtualHost>


I've tried putting an alias in there, like so
Code:
Alias /2010 "E:/domains/mediasite/LMS/assets"

but I can't seem to get that working either.

What am I missing??

Thanks!

Is the user apache runs allowed to access that directory? Is it a networkdrive or a real hardware drive? What about the folder permissions?
