ServerName

Ok, I've got Apache running on a Win 2K server.  The server's Windows name is Johnny.  I need this server to be able to serve requests for johnny.company.com/home/.  currently, the server only works for johnny/home/.  when i bring up johnny.company.com/home/ i get a "File not Found" error.  The same thing happens when i go to server's IP (192.168.1.1/home/).  DNS is right because when I go to johnny.company.com, I get the server's actual administration homepage.  I simply cannot get it to work the way I want, though.  Any ideas?

Thanks,

JustinTX

Does the "home" directory exist in the directory path identified for "johnny"?

if not create it .. also replace your index.htm or index.html with a new one saying someing like hi in both the root directory for johnny and in the "home" directory to ensure you have the right directory identified, and that it's working properly

actually, the problem was a websphere issue, not even an apache issue...  needed to assign aliases to the default_host value.  oh well... that's what happens when you don't know what you're doing!  now i do : )
