Plain text please...

What page were you expecting to get? I presume you mean you have created
some content (html pages, images etc.) and want to view it. If so, the
key directive you need to look at is "DocumentRoot" which tells apache
where to start looking on your filesystem. Check the docs for details,
but briefly:

if you have:

	DocumentRoot "C:/apache/html"



will serve the file at:


It maybe when you do this, you get a "Forbidden 403" error. This can
happen if your "Allow" and "Deny" directives are set incorrectly. Check
the docs for details, but:

	<Directory C:/apache/html>
		Allow from all

should fix it.

Finally, when posting queries, it helps if you:

- describe exactly what you want to happen
- describe exactly what is actually happening (i.e. error codes etc. -
don't say "doesn't work" :-)
- copy any error_log messages
- copy a snippet of your config (don't post the whole config - it's too
huge for anyone to bother reading)

Hi Everyone,
I have installed Apache 1.3 on Win2k. Everything seems to work fine
except the only page I can get is the default web page. Can someone help
he get this figured out. I have attached the file for your review.
