Hi all, so far so good thanks heaps for all your help so far (esp, Joe and A H).
I was trying to place an index.html into /var/www/ but couldn't because.. it just wouldn't let me.
I did a sudo chown myUsername /var/www/ it let me place the index file in teh directory however when i go to http://localhost/ i get 403'd you don't have persmission to access / on this server.
Any help on how to fix this? ( chown root doesnt change anything either)
