Apache/2.0.54 (Linux/SUSE) "
trying to get into my index.html and I get the error 404
can you help!!
Before posting, do some research. This problem has been addressed several times within the last month. Anyway, it appears that you are publishing a Web site that has an index page of the type .htm as compared to .html. If this is the case, you will have to edit the /etc/apache2/httpd.conf configuration file so that it reads default directory as index.htm instead of index.html. and index.html.var.
Prior to receiving your access denied messages, did you get the default Apache index file - stating that it was installed correctly? A little more info goes a long way.
Perhaps you need to chmod the map where the website is located. That was atleast what I had to do to make things work.
