Apache / mod_rails config


I have mod_rails on Apache serving a rails app just fine.

What I want to do is have another folder served by apache as a
downloadable list of files.

Do I need to do mod_rewrite stuff and mess around with htaccess?

If so has anybody got a recipe?


Hi George,

This is a bit outside the scope of this group, but how you set that up
doesn’t really have anything to do with the mod_rails install. From
what I know, you should just be able to create a new virtual host and
point it to the folder of files you want to serve. Mod rewrite would
only be needed if you want to change the url’s from the file/folder
names to something else.
