    You didnt get my point, the error message you pasted it says that the file doesnt exist. So, in order the apache shud look in that particular directory u need to make sure that in the httpd.conf you have mentioned the DcoumentRoot atleast /home. If possible, can u check and let me know the document root you have mentioned in Apache.
