the index.html file that you need to edit is in /Library/WebServer/Documents . Note that this is no the same as the index.html in /Users/yourUserName/Sites. This file is owned by root which means in order to edit it, you have to have root privileges (which text edit does not)

Using the program called skeleton Key, you can run text edit as root and you will be able to change the file.

It can be found at

Thanks for the application, but I still can't get it to work. I'm saving the index.html to the proper place, but when I save a plain text file and then rename it index.html, all of the information that I pasted in the text file is wiped out. I've verified this by trying to re-access said information.

Can anyone help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?
