I have Abyss web server running great, but I have some other documents (PDFs and tutorial videos) that are on another drive. How can I add a reference to the other drive? Do I add this to a documents path, or is this an alias?

Thanks

This is the typical use case of aliases in Abyss Web Server. For example, create a new alias with virtual path /docs and with the real path D:\save\documents (for example).

This will make any URL of the form http://yoursite/docs/myreport.pdf directly serve file D:\save\documents\myreport.pdf regardless of the documents path and other settings.
