How to serve static files?
Create a directory (also known as a folder) called
static in the location of the script that runs the web.py server. Then place the static files you wish to serve in the static folder.
For example, the URL
http://localhost/static/logo.png will send the image
./static/logo.png to the client.
To serve static files with Apache an Alias directive can be used to map the request for a URL to a chosen directory, before it is handled by web.py.
Here is an example Virtual Host configured on a Unix like system with an Alias directive in effect:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName example.com:80 DocumentRoot /doc/root/ # mounts your application if mod_wsgi is being used WSGIScriptAlias / /script/root/code.py # the Alias directive Alias /static /doc/root/static <Directory /> Order Allow,Deny Allow From All Options -Indexes </Directory> # because Alias can be used to reference resources outside docroot, you # must reference the directory with an absolute path <Directory /doc/root/static> # directives to effect the static directory Options +Indexes </Directory> </VirtualHost>
