  Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 1
Subject:   connection failure on first use of http://127.0.0.1/~me/

I'm new to this. (spoiled by GUIs on my Mac) When I try to use a browser to go to http://127.0.0.1/~me/ I get a connection failure message. Is Apache located in wrong part of my Mac?

    Is your username "me"? Are you sure that Apache is turned on? What version of OS X do you have? What browser are you using? Are you a dialup user, or are you connected to a network?

      Thanks for responding.
      My username is not "me". I just used that to state the probblem.
      I don't know if Apache is on. I did hit "start" in the web sharing panel. Was that it?
      I'm using OS 10.1 and browsing with IE 5.1 browser.
      I know absolutely nothing about how to tell if Apache is on.

        Ok. I think I know where this is leading.

        Go to a Terminal, and type "httpd -t". If you see the error message below, then it's a common problem. The URL with more information is also below.

        httpd -t

      Oh yes, I'm not on a dial up. My connection is AT&T broadband.
