Subject RE: [users@httpd] Newbie problems, trying to get Apache HTTP Server working
Date Sat, 21 Jul 2007 22:57:00 GMT
Hello,

The file you are seeing is the index.html file stored in ~httpd/htdocs.  

To setup domains, you need to add <VirtualHost> directives to your
~httpd/conf/httpd.conf file.

Also, where are you hosting this?  From your home, or elsewhere?  Many ISP's
block their clients from hosting web servers unless they have a static IP
with them (which they usually charge an arm and a leg for).  You can get
around this by changing the port that Apache runs on to something like 8080
(e.g. http://yourdomain:8080/).  

Also, if you have a firewall up then make sure that it isn't blocking
incoming connections to port 80.
