Subject Re: [users@httpd] ftp via http !
Date Mon, 25 Apr 2005 17:05:26 GMT
Created virual host as instructed but I am getting blank page and  server 
access log shows " GET /HTTP/1.1" 304 - "-" "Mozilla/4.0...."

Here is my virtual host configuration

ServerName james
DocumentRoot /home/john
<Directory /home/john>
   Options All
#   AllowOverride None
   allow from all

I found on google that if I don't put any html file under document root,  by 
defalut apache should show directory listing right?  If not then how can I 
show list of files under home directory?
