I have 2.0.45 setup on Win ME. Localhost will not work on ME unless you set
up a virtual host on a port other than port 80.
Here is an actual guideline that would work. Turn On "UseCanonicalName On"
in httpd.conf. If the person knows their IP address, set the main server
conf to
Listen theirIP:80 #then add
Listen 81
#Then under virtual hosts set one for Localhost (be sure to include an
index.html in the localhost directory)
DocumentRoot C:/Apache2/
Servername Localhost
<Directory "C:/Apache2/">

        Options ALL
   AllowOverride All
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

#Then their www. domain

DocumentRoot C:/Apache2/yourdomaindocs
<Directory "C:/Apache2/yourdomaindocs">

        Options ALL
   AllowOverride All
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
There are a few other configs that they will need to do for Win ME, because
Win ME does not support flock, and other things, but can all be solved by
adding the right files and right conf.
