What I want to do is bind some network locations, local and distant on LAN (torrents on the same box, files on my external shared by samba) so that they all figure in my htdocs folder, hence all available on the internetz. Usually, on linux,to bind something like my external hard drive i would just do something like bind \\wifighter\radium /var/www/radium but obviously windows just doesn't support binding stuff like that. Without messing around with Apache virtualhosts and subdomains, which I understand nothing to,how can I make this work?
Now the second part, securing the whole thing. Although I don't care about people stealing my homework, I don't want people to be able to download my torrents directly from my box at extremely high http speeds. Of course, I could put a .htaccess file in the root folder, but to my knowledge, htaccess stuff isnt recursive, so it wont protect the child folders.
I dont want that to happen. Any other way of securing htdocs folder?
