Apache - custom directory styling

  • Posted December 24, 2013

I have migrated my so-called CDN from Mediatemple to a DigitalOcean droplet, running on a Ubuntu 12.04 LAMP stack (beta). I have successfully tarred and rsynced from Mediatemple to DigitalOcean, everything works well… BUT for one tiny, annoying problem - I have installed Apaxy ( on my CDN to make it look nice and neat when browsing through the directories, but when I moved to DigitalOcean, all the styling was gone.

See for yourself -

Mediatemple (old) -

Digitalocean (new) -

Ha, I have found the culprit! It’s the mods-available directory - alias.conf file - “Alias /icons /usr/share/icons/”.

Hmm, I have done some tweaking in httpd.conf and Apache has managed to detect the style.css file, but it doesn’t detect the custom icons… I wonder why…
