This guide explains how to configure OpenLM EasyAdmin to work with Apache webserver.

Alias /easyadmin “<Location of easyadmin directory>”
<Directory “<Location of easyadmin directory>”>
Options +Indexes FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI
AllowOverride None
Order deny,allow
Allow from all
</Directory>

e.g. – if easyadmin is located at:
“C:\Program Files\OpenLM\OpenLM Server\WebApps/EasyAdmin2” then you need to add the following:

Alias /easyadmin “C:/Program Files/OpenLM/OpenLM Server/WebApps/EasyAdmin2”
<Directory “C:/Program Files/OpenLM/OpenLM Server/WebApps/EasyAdmin2”>
