I have a sub-domain setup (joe.mydomain.com) and it is using a WP application. In my WP blog, I am trying to reference a .mp3 file that is stored at www.mydomain.com/joe/music/xxx.mp3

When I try to access that file, it can't find it. Before I setup the sub-domain, I could see these .mp3 files. What's going on?

thanks

Looks like support got me fixed up. The original /joe directory got renamed to /joe2. Thanks anyway!

I finally got an answer to this. What you have to do is create a new "App" that is a "Symbolic Link" (to static-only app). Then use this link by adding it to a website. For example, I have a directory with mp3s that I want to access. They are in /home/domain/webapps/html/joe/music. So I add this new app to the website for my sub-domain and mount it to /music. Now I can access the mp3 files as /music/song.mp3. Works well.
