Re: Can't browse on new windows install

It was a few things. Between your posts and DJs as follows:

-Apache is a service that doesn't have access to your own user's mapped
-network drives (mapped drive letters are scoped to the current user's
-logon session).
-If you really want to run with the repository on a network share, then
-you need to use UNC notation (\\server\sharename\directory) and change
-the Apache service to run as a network user that has permissions to
-that share.

I got things to work. My entire goal was to have the repository on a
system which was backed up daily. After setting up Apache as DJ
suggested, since the user is in my local domain, there's no startup
scripts to map the network drives. I just run a MS job one a day with the
scheduler, which exports the repos to the LAN.

Thanks Y'all. BTW, the other useful link was

Looks good!

So in what way does it not work from the web browser?
