Response to: Cannot access username via the

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?

    Unfortunately, I don't have any clues. You could send your httpd.conf to me at, and I could take a look in there.

    I have gotten spurious reports here and there of an httpd.conf file that only contains a few scant lines. A "normal" Apple supplied httpd.conf file should have hundreds and hundreds of lines. How big is yours?

      I have developed a similar problem. I get a 403 error in my , but I can see the site. I notice In Netinfo Manager the title of the window is local@ (that has changed) and selecting machines then localhost or broadcasthost, the 3 items in the lower window ip_address, name and serves are grayed out. I can not select them. I did play with this after winstonford offered a way to see a site inside a airport network.

        Sorry. Authenticate in Netinfo Manager solves my grayed out "problem"...
