    Ok so my friend is having some issues, he has his own server and is trying to make a website however he can't figure out how to access another drive through html on the server.

    For those who don't get what I'm saying it is something like this:

    website = drive E:/ and stuff to download is on drive F:/

    If he can't do it with html he needs to find away to link the drives using his one server. Anyone know what to do?

    HTML is rendered client side. It'd have to be in PHP.


    Or any other server side language for that matter.

    He's not going to be able to serve anything outside the web root via HTML.

    Edit your apache/IIS config to add an alias to the other drive, or create an NTFS junction or symbolic link from the data drive to a directory under the web root.

    For an easy way to create junctions & symbolic links I'd suggest installing this shell extension

    IIS: Virtual Directory
    Apache: Vhosts
