Subject Re: [users@httpd] server to test websites
Date Tue, 16 Oct 2007 15:59:30 GMT
Hard to really tell what's going on, but here's a couple things to try.

Don't forget to restart your server after changes (probably already are, 
just have to make sure).

The vhost definitions all seem pretty unnecessary, why not just listen 
on localhost:80 and docroot to mecweb?
