port forwarding to a directory?

port forwarding to a directory?

port forwarding to a directory?

Hello all,

I would like to built a web application for our internal use in our company. I do have a server IP which we are already using for an application something like http://10.x.x.xx:8080/ABC  This brings up a page where I launch the application.

I understand the :8080 is the port (Web Port) and the /ABC is the directory where the index.html or whatever is the welcome page is located.

If I want to create another application, is is easier to use a different port or should I just use a different directory /XYZ ?  Since it's not a user based /home/user/public_html/ where is the location of the public_html or www on a UNIX server. Is it a public_html in this case?


RE: port forwarding to a directory?

From a user perspective, ports are excess/confusing info. This is why we do not need to type http://www.tek-tips.com:80

The subdirectory concept is more understandable to most users (10.x.x.x/ABC and 10.x.x.x/XYZ)

You might look at DNS options so that your users can simply type http://ABC or http://XYZ
