Angry Configuring Apache problems


Hi,
I am trying to configure Apache's httpd file and I chaged a few things in it according to a guide i found on the interent. I am now unable to restart Apache successfully.
The error message I get is as follows:
<Directory> was not closed

The syntax it is reffering to is below (the bold section - I included the syntax above and beloow the error line just to give you an idea about its context):
<Directory "C:/Documents and Settings/*/My Documents/My Website">
AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
<Limit GET POST OPTIONS PROPFIND>
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Limit>
<LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS PROPFIND>
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
</LimitExcept>
</Directory>

<Directory "Cocuments and SettingsYourusernamehereMy DocumentsMyWebsitelocalhostwww">[/B]

Options Multiviews Indexes SymlinksifownerMatchIncludes ExecCGI


I would appriciate any help

Thanks

Try running Apache on GNU/Linux. I'm sure it'll run better than on Windoze.

Yeah, Apache is much happier on *nix than MS, but in answer to your original question, you open <Directory>, but never close it with </Directory>. Just like HTML tags, if you open but don't close, it will screw things up.

Peace,
JimBass
