I want to use apache to host the files of my two pen drives but also from a folder inside /home/pi. I can set the root directory of apache to /home/pi but what about the pen drives? Don't wanna set the directory to / because I only want to make /media and /home/pi/downloads accesible through apache.


You can create symlinks in this directory and add this option to you site config:

 <Directory />
        Options FollowSymLinks

    If you don't know what a symlink is, see here. An example of creating a symlink on linux would be ln -s /mnt/usb/foo /var/httpd/bar. This links the latter to the former. The -s important, see man ln. – goldilocks Feb 18 '15 at 14:00
