Subject Re: [users@httpd] windows config
Date Wed, 02 Jun 2004 18:06:56 GMT
Thanks Chris.  I ran the server from Windows/DOS and it seems to run because
I get a cursor/prompt without an error message.  But I can't use the prompt
(is it supposed to be used?).  And when I type http://localhost/ or
http://127.0.0.1/ in my browser (InetExpl.), it fails to direct me to the
server.  Excuse me.  This is all new to me.

Thanks,

Barth
