Angry Getting Apache Test Page


Hello Everyone,

I'm sure this question has been asked a guzillion times. I know because I have conducted a search on both these forums and on Google. But I can't seem to find the fix to my issue.

I get the infamous Apache Server Test Page. My .conf file is setup to go to "/var/www/html". If I coment out the autoindex portion I get the contents of the folder displayed on my browser.

I have set the file permissions to 755 on index.html (which does exist in the DocumentRoot. I have started and restarted Apache everytime I make a change. I have even reboot the box for good measure.

It seems like Apache can't find the index.html file when I just put
"h t t p://w w w. mydomain. com/" (spaces added); but it will if I specify the file I am searching for.

Are you accessing the testpage from your lan? If so I don't think the www is needed.

Yeah, the getup I have is a Windows PC (XP Pro) and a dedicated Linux box hooked up through a router. I originally had a problem thinking that my ISP blocked port 80 (which they don't) so I set up Apache to listen on port 8082. This created a query string at the end of the url "/?path=file.html" (I assume this had something to do with URL forwarding service through my DNS provider). But it worked... When I realized that the ISP did not block port 80, I changed Apache to listen on port 80. It worked for a day. Then I added another virtual host. That's when it all went FUBAR and the test page started loading up.

For now, I have commented out all the content in the noindex.html file that comes up and added a simple javascript to change the location to mysite/index.html...

But if anyone can find a permanent fix to this for me, I would greatly appreciate it...
