  Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 2
Subject:   Adding another SSI Directory

This series is amazing...exactly what I was looking for to learn about Apache!

I was able to get SSI working properly in the main webserver directory (/Library/WebServer) but had some trouble doing the same in my "Sites" folder. I added the following to my httpd.conf file, right below the other entry:

<Directory "/Users/william/Sites/">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews Includes
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Am I missing anything? Thanks for any help!

    In this case, your configuration is being overridden by something not yet mentioned in the articles (and generically, relatively specific to OS X).

    For each user that is created on your machine, you have a specific "users" configuration file for Apache. You can see these files by browsing in /etc/httpd/users/. You should see a configuration file named after your username (in this case 'william'). That's the file where you should add the "Indexes" Option for your personal Sites directory.

      Thank you so much. Your articles have been a huge help and I know I'm not alone in looking forward to future installments.
