    Apache, not understanding instructions


    by barrie91 ·

    I don’t quite know what is meant in the below information, does it mean copy the text into notepad and I do not see any pound signs.

    Be greatfull if anyone can help.


    Configuring Apache
    First go to the Start menu and go to “My Documents”. Make a new folder there called “My Website”. This is where you’re going to store your web pages and CGI programs.

    Next you need to modify the Apache configuration file to tell it where your pages are, and enable CGI programs. Go back to the Start menu and navigate to All Programs > Apache HTTP Server > Configure Apache Server > Edit the Apache httpd.conf Configuration file. The config file will be opened for you in Notepad.

    Scroll down (or use Find) until you get to the UserDir section of the file. It should have a line like this:

    UserDir “My Documents/My Website”

    Apache 2.2 doesn’t have a UserDir section
    If you’re using Apache 2.2, you’ll have to ADD the UserDir line and the Directory section ( see below ). See for more info on this.

    Scroll down just past that and you’ll come to a commented section for Directory:

    # AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    # Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
    # # Order allow,deny
    # Allow from all
    # # Order deny,allow
    # Deny from all

    Uncomment this entire section (by removing the pound signs at the beginning of each line), and change the Options line to this:

    Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch Includes ExecCGI
