    Virtual directory for static content

    Charles Johnson Newbie

      I am trying to set up a virtual directory on my wildfly server, for serving up static content.

      in accordance with instructions I have found on various sites I set up a handler in my standalone.xml, as follows:

              <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:undertow:3.1">

                  <buffer-cache name="default"/>

                  <server name="default-server">




          <file name="/images" path="c:/test" directory-listing="true"/>



      The assumption is that I can now navigate to https://localhost:8443/images/jackolantern.jpg and access that file, but it does not work, I receive a 404 error from the server.


      Is this set up correctly? Am I missing an additional setting?

          The snippet you posted doesn't show where you are actually referencing the handler, and defining the URL path where that static content can be reached.


          <server name="default-server">

            <host name="default-host" alias="localhost">
              <location name="/images" handler="images"/>




          Additionally, you need to remove the leading slash from the file handler name.  You are trying to set a path there, where it's just supposed to be a name that's referenced.
