    Does ISPConfig support it? I added index.xhtml to httpd.conf and restarted the server. All I get when connecting to the page is a 403 error. Thinking I missed something along the way...

    What does xhtml support mean? The only thing I know regarding that is, xhtml beeing another way of writing the html tags, like closing them explicitly or with a trailing / if they do not have a closing tag... that can also be coded into a "normal html file" just with changing the DTD-Line to any xhtml stuff...

    If you want to generally configure that you should do that in your httpd conf of your apache....

    I think I meant supporting .xhtml file extension but doing some real basic and quick research based on your answer I am not sure now... I assumed an xhtml page needed to be named .xhtml

    I just started using NVU in Linux (versus Dreamweaver in XP) to do some web pages and it defaults to xhtml which is my first real experience with it. I changed the index extension to just .html on the page I was trying to load and it worked. well... almost! :D seems NVU's preview mode is not real-time (or wysiwyg).

    hhmmm... maybe I should do some more homework on xhtml!

    so much to learn... so little time in the day...

    thanks for the help :)

    You an add index.xhtml to the DirectoryIndex on the Options tab of the web site in ISPConfig. Then the 403 error should be gone.

    thanks Falko!

    I thought there might be something in ISPConfig I was missing because I noticed the HowTo pages were xhtml. Are there also any settings or considerations for CSS in ISPConfig?

    I don't understand... There are no server-side settings for CSS, you just link your stylesheets in the header of your HTML pages.

    Don't feel bad it seems I don't either! :) CSS is new to me as is xhtml. I did add index.xhtml to the ISPConfig settings for the site. I still get a page not found error. I verified my xhtml and css with w3c and both check out so I am not sure what other issues to look at.

    Is a restart needed for adding the .xhtml to ISPConfig?

    Can you post your vhost configuration for that web site here?

    You have index.xhtml in your DirectoryIndex:
    so everything should be fine unless you uploaded index.xhtml to the wrong directory. Maybe there's also an .htaccess file that causes problems?

    I found only one .htaccess in /. It is in /srv/www/htdocs/phpMyAdmin/libraries and this is the content
    # This folder does not require access over HTTP
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from none
    As a novice Linux user I would have first considered this a problem but then I remembered that ISPConfig basically blocks the use of /svr/www/htdocs doesn't it?

    I haven't considered the wrong directory since I replace the old index file with the new one when I test the page.

    It's not related to your web site because your web site is in /srv/www/web2/web.

    I still have not figured out why the index.xhtml will not work. I have another box setup with Suse 10.0 w/o ISPConfig. I started it up and loaded the xhmtl pages to it and switched the vserver IP over and the pages still didn't work. The difference I noted though was that I did not get an error page, it was just simply blank. I entered the domain/index.xhtml and got this
    XML Parsing Error: no element found
    Location: http://www.thefractalfarm.net/index.xhtml
    Line Number 1, Column 1:
    I haven't had a chance to google it yet and try to figure out what it is telling me.

    Does your xhtml file work when you open the file locally from your harddisk with a webrrowser trough the file open dialog?

    Hello Till... yes it does.


    I have loaded up the xhtml pages and as usual locally they are working... www.thefractalfarm.net

    Page is gray background, section with site name over background image, nav links, section with definitions of fractal and farm over background image, followed by 2-3 paragraphs of rambling...
