Apache

Ok i have got it so that when i type my ip
http://123.123.1.2:2000
I get an apache 'you done it' page.
However, in that same directory i have created a folder called test with similiar index.html page in it. How do i get it to go to that folder.

http://123.123.1.2:2000/test
does not work i get this

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /test/index.htm on this server

you have to add it to httpd.conf file.

I would really suggest you check out the apache.org web page. There is a ton of documentation on there. I would also suggest Oreilly's book on Apache the Definitive Guide. Even if you dont plan to do a lot with apache. it is another great book to have around.

This error is caused when you try to open a directory and the default configuation for apache is to open a file such as index.htm, index.html, default.htm, or default.html. If these files do not exist, you will get a permissions / failure error.

These are lots of 'gotchas' like this using something as powerful as the Apache web-server. I agree with Optimus that reading the book or on-line documentation would help you accomplish your goals much faster.

Here is a link to the book Optimus recommends, at Amazon:
