Hey everyone, thanks for your time,

I am looking to host web sites and am having problems with the web sharing. Even more frustrating, a few months ago I had this working, now when I move to make it active things go haywire.

Basically, permission to http://localhost/ is denied but permission to http://localhost/~username is allowed. The results are the same even when trying to access on the problem machine. I've gone over all the permissions multiple times and everyone is marked as read. Any ideas?
QUOTE Thanks
