I am trying to configure Apache Webserver 2.2.6 on Windows XP machine. I have a situation where my application lets my users to upload images into non-webroot folder (that is folder other than my apache webroot). So lets say my Apache Webroot is E:\Softwares\Apache2.2.6\htdocs and my upload directory is E:\uploads. For every user, my application (on the runtime) creates a folder (folder name will be same as that of user's profile id) inside E:\uploads\<new_folder>.
So lets say a user's profile id is : tom, then his images will be uploaded to the following directory
