Red Hat 9 HTTPD Server


I am quite new to red hat 9, and I am having a problem with the HTTP server.. I already installed it, and had the service running.

I put an index.html file in the defualt dir. (/var/www/html/) and I still get the Apache Screen!!!
I made sure that the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
DocumentRoot is "/var/www/html" and Yes i did restart the service after changing that.
please help me

Check your permissions to your file and directory. Make sure, it can be read by others.

I already thought of that.... My file permissions are fine.... I think that it might be the "Virtual Host" thing, i kinda messed with that.

Fonke0412,

Have you tried hitting refresh after you open the index.html in your browser? I had this same problem. I guess the redhat default html page was stuck in my cache from before I made my own index.html. I would restart the web browser and still get that redhat default html page. After I clicked refresh, to my suprise I saw my own index.html page. Give that a try also check the permissions on the folders: var, www, and html.
