10.5: Apache 2 site troubles with permissions and folders
Authored by: KenDRhyD on Nov 16, '07 03:32:48PM
Actually, the problem is more fundamental (but I still do not know how to correct it).

On a new Leopard install, if I enable web sharing, the logged-in user default web page URL works and displays the default page provided by Leopard.

If I edit the /private/etc/apache2/httpd.conf file to uncomment the line that includes the /private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf file and then stop and restart web sharing, I cannot access the logged-in user web site! It reports the error that it cannot access the specified server (which is the IP address of the current system).

If I edit the file to comment out that include line and stop and start web sharing once more, then I can again access the logged-in user web site! Why does including the default (provided) version of this file prevent the default web site from loading? Is there something I have to change to permit the logged-in web site to work when this fil eis included?
