Evo2, after I changed the permissions I was able to create new directories in the www directory. However, I was not able to remove the existing html.index file and when I visit localhost all I see is the html.index file that I can not get rid of.
On my Windows computer I created a folder for each website that I was working on in the htdocs/myfiles folder and when I visited localhost I would see all of my folders (websites) listed there. I would like to recreate that setup on my linux machine.
I've been browsing YouTube looking for a videos on this topic, but all I get are video showing me how to install apache : (
chrism01, thanks for the links. The virtual hosting link looks like it might be a solution, but I was hoping to just find the right directory to put my files in.
I would imagine that Linux developers also have more than one website they want to work on... where are these sites usually stored? Or do they usualy configue apache virtual hosting??
