Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 1
Subject:   NOT FOUND

I was turning on the Web sharing.
But when I open the browser and writes
or http://localhost/~myshortusername/ or
just .... I just get the message: Not Found. The requested URL... was not found at this server. Apache/1.3.33 Server at cak.local port 80

What is wrong?
I tryed to find the httpd.conf file, to take a look at the root adress, but I didn't find it.

    It appears that your server is not running. From a terminal, try the command

    sudo apachectl start

    which may give you some diagnostics on conflicts or permissions. On my G4 PowerBook running OS X 10.4.3 the httpd.conf file is in /etc/httpd

    Good luck, Andreas
    • Seems to me it's running ok.

      Thank's Andreas, but it doesn't seem to be the probleme.?!

      The terminal gave me this answear:
      /usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd (pid 123) alredy running ...

      I can find the file httpd.html.html, but I just can't find the httpd.conf file. I've searcht the whole machine.

      I'll serach one more time...:-/

        Good, your server is running. Next, check the advanced options in your firewall settings (system preferences -> Sharing-> Firewall->Advanced, and make sure that the stealth mode is turned off. Don't ask me why, I am new to this, too.


        P.S.: You may need to search from a terminal to find your httpd.conf file, try the command

        cd /etc/httpd

        and then

        ls -la

        and see what you get.

          I don't have an HTTPd.conf file. I used the search terms above and it just seem like I haven't had one for a couple of years. When I do a search nothing comes up. Can I get one from somewhere or have apache create another?
