We are going to need more information than you are providing us with.
Are you running Apache on your local machine?  If  so then the IP that <>  is
resolving to isnt going to be the IP address of your local machine (just
guessing your setup here), but the IP address of your router.  If I go
to, I get an Apache start page.

provider that says the service is unavailable at the present time. im

		Also, look at your httpd.conf for the section

		# DirectoryIndex: sets the file that Apache will serve
if a directory

		# is requested.

		You need to have index.html listed there.

		Also, just looking at your next post, you seem to be
looking at rather than ???

			Please annoint us with details such as OS,
apache version, whether you are using the default httpd.conf file, any
error messages you get in the logs, and so on.
			Best guess from the information available is
that you are not putting the file in the actual document root. Do you
have any virtual hosts configured?

				Hi I am a newbie to this. My problem is
this: I have successfully installed apache and have added my index html
file to the htdocs directory, but it is still displaying the apache test
page. Any ideas? Thanks.
