I have Xampp installed on Mac OSX Version 10.9.2 and all works fine with htdocs and my sql. I would like to be able to run Xampp from my computer but access files on external lacie drive with Firewire 800 (not thunderbolt capable).

How can I do this and if there is a way, can I still access the files on computer as well as the disc or just one with setting?

Appreciate your time.

Cheers, Steve.


You mount the drive as you would any other. This will usually make the files on it available via /Volumes/Something/ on your local file system.

You can then specify that location as a DocumentRoot or Alias in your Apache configuration.

Alternatively, you can create a symlink to it from somewhere under your existing DocumentRoot (assuming you enable symlinks in the configuration).
