Not immediately. What error message do you get? Have you messed with your Apache configuration before? Have you deleted the Sites directory from within your User folder?

    Hello,

    I think I have this problem too. I remember deleting that Sites folder when I first got the computer, not realizing what it was (foolishly) and now I've recreated it but it still won't work.

    Any ideas??

    I have the same problem. I get the default apache "this is working" page, but adding /~username/ to the end gives an error 404.

    The sites directory is there, with an index.html file in it. It hasn't been touched. The only thing I have touched with the whole configuration was copying httpdconf.bak over httpd.conf, since the server wouldn't start at all before I did that.

    Like busboy, I'm typing the username correctly. Any clues?
