Smile Apache wont start


Has anyone came across this problem before??
Apache fails to start when I move the web pages to a new area.
I have changed the settings in the httpd.conf file but it wont start when I change the document directory to the new location. When I change it back to how it was it starts up fine.

/var/www/html is the default location when I try to change it to /www/html it fails to start.

I am using Fedora 5. With Redhat I didn't have this problem.

Cheers

have you created the direcory /www/html with proper permissions.
Try
Quote:
chmod 777 /www/html
and see if that works out for you.

1. search the httpd.conf, find the keyword "/var/www/html".
The path only exists in the DocumentRoot section?
Maybe some other configure item forbid the path?

2. There are some hidden files in /var/www/html?
such like .htaccess?

if possible read your apache logs and try pasting them here, so we can help out on the problem.
