Ive been trying to set up a namevirtualhost just as a project running on my own computer, ive altered my hosts file which
looks like this localhost.localdomain localhost

then i added to the httpd.conf

DocumentRoot /home/peta/web
<Directory /home/peta/web>
Order allow, deny
Allow from all

I have an index file in the above document root.

When i type in the address into the browser i get an error msg
saying i dont have permission to access /

it dont seem to matter where i define the document root for the virtual host
...i always get the same message.. plus defining a namevirtual host seems to
stop me accessing any file ...i get the same msg even for the localhost but
soon as i comment out the namevirtualhost directives the localhost works

thanks chris

you cant use as a name virtual host ip address

how is this server connected to the internet...behind a firewall by itself
on the internet or is it behind a router?
