Hey guys, Run into my first real problem with Mac! And i just can't fix it, which isn't really common for me so its a little anoying . Anyway. The problem occurs when i try to access my "Sites" directory from the web browser - http://localhost/~mark/ - which basically throws a great big Forbidden aka 403 error message. Something that shouldnt happen if i am to believe the articles at: http://www.macdevcenter.com/pub/a/mac/collections/webserving.html Since everything should be configured. Nether the less I've checked the Apache config file and everything looks in order and the file permisions for the Sites directory seem to be correct at 775 (drwxrwxr-x). Any clues would be much appreciated! This one has me stumped and i can't find anything of use on google . If this is a problem with OSX 10.3.4 then maybe i should ring tech help and report it? Thanks guys, Mark.
