Subject RE: [users@httpd] Can't get Apache 2.2 to display anything
Date Mon, 16 Nov 2009 08:18:52 GMT
On line 177 you have 

DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Software

So apache will go there and look for "index.html". It appears this file
is the standard apache "It works!" file. So there is no problem with
apache, just with your understanding of how apache finds the content...

The usual thing that most people do is to make their own content
directory and put their own "index.html" in it. Then they point
"DocumentRoot to that directory. This saves mixing your content with
apache documentation stuff.


DocumentRoot "C:/Users/fred/mysite"

then C:/Users/fred/mysite/index.html is your homepage.

	I'm trying to get the webserver to display my index page. I
placed everything required in \htdocs\ inside the default Apache

I see is "It Works!". What could be the problem?
