"Hello David, I see this problem a lot in my support

come to mind:

"Check your user/group ownership of the

permissions on the file as well ie: rwx)."

Thanks for the tip. I think I understand what you're
saying, though this is all very new to me. I'm
especially in the dark regarding user/group ownership
and permissions, an I've never had to deal with that;
my websites are all on my computer, which isn't shared
by anyone else. (However, I have published this page
onlne, and it isn't working there, either.)

Anyway, I'll have to find a tutorial to help me figure
how to check my user/group ownership (of the folder my
websites are in, or the folder Apache is in).

Can you suggest a topic heading or keywords to search
for? I browsed through the main Apache 2.0 page at and the FAQs but
didn't see anything that looked relevant.
