# How to change Apache to serve a subdirectory by default

I have a vanilla install of DokuWiki on CentOS 6.4 with Apache. The internal URL is

http://wiki/dokuwiki


How do I go about configuring Apache/DokuWiki to not require the /dokuwiki part? I want users just to be able to go to:

http://wiki


in their browser.

Look for the DocumentRoot directive in your Apache configuration files. It should usually be in one of these:
• /etc/apache2/sites-available/default
• /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
• /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
It should point to /var/www, but if your Wiki is saved in /var/www/dokuwiki, then this should be your server's document root, and all pages will be served relative to that directory.
