Subject RE: Virtual Hosts
Date Thu, 23 Jan 2003 20:42:09 GMT
I'm having a similar issue.  I'm running tc4.1.18 on w2k server.
http://localhost/examples works but doesn't.  I
searched the archives and found some information on creating a host file
with the FQDN as the name but that didn't seem to work.  Is there something
else I need to change?  Do I need to configure my firewall || router to let
additional ports through?  Right now, port:80 (http) serves static content
with no problem.

I'm new - thanks for your help.

I could possibly use some of the information.  I am running on the same
releases: Apache 2.0.43, Tomcat 4.1.18 & win2k.
My problem is that I can't get to the directory of my virtualHosts.

e.g. http://localhost/examples is not a problem BUT will not work.  I just noticed an err in the log
saying -
Directory index forbidden by rule: C:/Apache/Tomcat4.1/path/to/examples

Can't find where to make my edits so the directory can be seen.

Maybe this is a related issue?  Either way if you know how to configure the
systems so that the directory will be shown, I would much appreciated it!
