Apache Web Sharing fits


okay...I upgraded from 10 to 10.1 and I fixed the slight problem in the httpd.conf file. I then realized roadrunner has port 80 blocked and changed my port to 1024. When I did this, I had sucess in getting my webserver to serve out pages over the internet at this address: Everything was great, until Apache started acting up, now, instead of reading index.html from the /usr/library/webserver/documents folder of os 10.1...instead you get "index of /" and it has the documents folder listed in it....now here is where it gets interesting.

If you click on the documents folder, it can't be found....and if you click on any other of the links "Name, last modified, size, or description you get my index.html page.

Furthermore: this is at the bottom-Apache/1.3.20 Server at Port 1024.....which is the ip identification of the "local" machine

and finally, I notice that
Parent Directory 31-Oct-2001 20:01 -
Documents/ 29-Oct-2001 11:39 -
have been updated since these dates specified. I must be doing something simple wrong...but I am not sure where to look. Please help...I want to learn Apache and PHP/SQL!! :)

Hmm... I don't think I'm seeing what you're describing. When I clicked on the link you have in your message, I get the normal Apache test page (comes with a new installation). I wonder if there is a difference between using your real IP and the localhost one ( - I can't imagine why there would be a difference, but its worth looking at.

Another thing to look at is the difference between the httpd.conf file in /etc/httpd/conf and the files under users (I think) in that same directory. There might be directives that are changing things for your instance of Apache. ???
For some reason forced refreshes in IE 5 for os 10.1 do not always work...not sure why, but that was my trouble. I was experimenting once earlier this week with the directory structure...and IE decided not to allow me to refresh from that setup.....weird

but thanks for helping
