Subject [users@httpd] Unable to configure Apache to use as personal web server
Date Wed, 29 Apr 2009 22:55:21 GMT
I am unable to configure Apache to connect to my local site.

Apache is installed as a personal web server on a notebook computer that uses the Windows
Vista operating system.

The Apache installation works, as evidenced by the "It works" index page shown upon using
the "http://localhost" URL.

I have configured the configuration file, httpd, trying to serve up an index of my web sites
stored in the My Website folder, which is in the  "c:\users\user" folder.

Here are the configuration statements I believe are relevant:

 ServerRoot "C:/Apache Software Foundation/Apache.2"

 Listen 80

 User daemon
 Group daemon

 ServerName localhost:80

 DocumentRoot "C:/users/user/my website/"

 <Directory "C:/users/user/my website/">
      Options Indexes FollowSymLinks 
      AllowOverride None
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all


Use of the localhost URL continues to show only the "It works" index page.

I've tried every adjustment of configuration of which I can conceive.

Where am I going wrong?
