    I am trying to change my default 404 error page on my mac to something a little more interesting. I have the html document you can see it Here.

    Anybody know how?

    Re: Apache Question

    It's located in the httpd.conf file. It should be on your Mac but you can't see it via a finder window. You need to open your Terminal and go to:

    /etc/httpd

    there is a file called httpd.conf. You must sudo to change it. Be careful as you can kill your webserver by messing this up.

    Good luck and God speed...and by the way...your page is a RIOT!

    Umm I of course assumed you know about the Terminal and vi and sudo and a bunch of other things...

    let me know if you don't I'd be happy to help.

    Sadly, I'm a mac user since System 7 and have very little unix knowledge. I'd be grateful if you could post the commands or chat to me on:
