Are you sure you reloaded the apache configuration and/or cleared your
browser cache?

Subject: [users@httpd] Unable to configure Apache to use as personal web


I am unable to configure Apache to connect to my local site.


Apache is installed as a personal web server on a notebook computer that
uses the Windows Vista operating system.


The Apache installation works, as evidenced by the "It works" index page
shown upon using the "http://localhost" URL.


I have configured the configuration file, httpd, trying to serve up an
index of my web sites stored in the My Website folder, which is in the
"c:\users\user" folder.


Here are the configuration statements I believe are relevant:

 ServerRoot "C:/Apache Software Foundation/Apache.2"


 Listen 80


 User daemon
 Group daemon


 ServerName localhost:80


 DocumentRoot "C:/users/user/my website/"


 <Directory "C:/users/user/my website/">
      Options Indexes FollowSymLinks 
      AllowOverride None
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all




Use of the localhost URL continues to show only the "It works" index


I've tried every adjustment of configuration of which I can conceive.


Where am I going wrong?
