    Help From The Apache Gurus

    OK, so I admint I am a serious noob. I will say though, I have been reading for about 5 day on forum, docs etc. I think I have read the answer I'm looking for, but I'm such a noob that I don't understand the lingo.

    Here's what I'm running...

    XP-home edition
    apache 2.0.48

    All I want to do is have stats from a game server I'm hosting displayed on the web. The stats generator makes the pages ect, but I can't veiw them from the web. I can veiw them by going to localhost/cs/ , but when I try to view from the web all I get is the apache test page. I'm assuming that port 80 isn't blocked since I can see the test page, but yet I don't know exactly what I have to configure in order to get my cs directory to display on the web.

    Any help is GREATLY appreciated!

    try to set main root path to path where your stats are - i think standard its caled httpdocs - and you will have them under localhost:80

    you could use also virtual host - but you would have to configure it - changing path is simplest way. -

    thanks for the reply, but I can access them fine from localhost. I put my cs directory into the htmldoc so the actual path is c:/program files/apache group/apache2/httpdocs/cs . the whole problem is I can't veiw them from the web. I can veiw them fine from my network ( no I don't have a router the other comp I have goes through this one to access the web), but I can't view from the web. I have tried "myipaddy".com:80 and everything, I'm just stumped. If I vistit "myipaddy".com I can see the apache test page, but that is all.

    Ok, so I did what you suggested, and now when I type in local host I get the stats immediatly instead of typing localhost/cs. The problem is though, that If I have someone try to access it from the web, it's still just showing the apache test page. Obviously I have something set wrong, I just don't know what it is.

    IP is correct, and it is listening on port 80.

    when I set it up I used my IP as the server name. Is that ok??

    Listen ip:80

    BindAddress *

    OK, I have it in like this:

    # Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
    # ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
    # directive.
    # Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to
    # prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses (

    is that right? Because I restarted and still just get a test page.
