Default Etch Apach2 Virtual Host Error

Hi All,

I'm going crazy trying to figure out an issue with a new apache2 server I'm working on...

I've put Apach2/php5 on Etch.

I'm trying to configure virtual hosts.

Apache2 starts with no errors, but when I try to go to the virtual hosts I see a directory listing that shows "apache-default" and "webalizer' directories instead of my virtual host.

I have the virtual hosts files (sites-available) from a working server, so those should be fine.

I've done the a2siteenable part to build the symlinks.

I've got this in /etc/apache2/conf.d/virtual.conf
NameVirtualHost *:80
I've got the html, etc folders in /home/www/sitename (which is where they lived on the old server and where the sites-available config files point them)

I'm stuck.

Can someone point out something (probably something obvious) that I'm missing?

What do you type into your browser's address bar? A domain/hostname or just an IP address? If you're using name-based vhosts, you must type in the correct domain/hostname in your browser.

Well, I kept beating on it and I isolated it to my .htaccess file.

When I coped my htdocs dir from the old Sarge server to the new Etch server there were 2 directives that we messing me up.

First, Follow links was turned on in the htaccss

Second, noIndex was turned on. Once I commented those 2 lines out it stated working again
