Subject Re: [users@httpd] HTTP Error: "Website declined to show this webpage."
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2007 18:39:27 GMT
After all efforts to restart Apache, for the third time, I reinstalled the 
server. It appears to be working. Again, I shall attempt to configure the 
server correctly. In the meantime, because this thread is so long and 
outdated, I propose to abandon it and start a new thread if needed.

These match. Should work.

What do you mean? Do you get an apache error (404, 500 etc.) or a
browser/system error (address not found, server not listening etc.)
Switch off friendly messaging and/or use a technically adept browser
like FireFox to see what's really happening and not what the browser
thinks you might want to hear.

Bit drastic.. since this is windows, I believe a reboot is the canonical
thing to try ;-)
