Great! This is awesome! Glad you are here.

My ultimate goal is to run the server on my iMac running Mac OS X Version
10.6.6.  Using Adobe Dreamweaver I want to test PHP pages locally on my
computer. All mac's come with Apache installed but for some reason mine is
not running right. I called AppleCare and they said that I need to reinstall
Apache.

When I type in the Safari browser " http://localhost/" I get the message "
Safari can¹t open the page ³http://localhost/² because the server
unexpectedly dropped the connection. This sometimes occurs when the server
is busy. Wait for a few minutes, and then try again."

1. Do you think I should reinstall Apache?

2. If so I downloaded httpd-2.2.17 and it is sitting on my desktop. Where
should I put that folder?  I keep all of my websites in the site folder.

Thanks for helping me with my extremely novice questions.

Matt
