    Except from the manual from Apache site, I don't know of any ( and I don't need of any ) since setting up Apache is a breeze.

    Is that when you go into the web browser and point it towards your IP address? If so, try entering "localhost" into the address bar. That should show you the standard apache index page.

    you don't have permission to access / on this server.




    it's probably something really stupid i'm over looking :

    if you want apache2 i have a pet about but, but if you wish to stick to 1.3 the problem is probably permissions, check that the user nobody has access to the htdocs. Also directory listing might not be enabled by default, try making a index.html file and seeing if that shows.

    good luck

    in terms of tutorials, reading the comments in the config file can be quite informative as well

    Yeap, Apache is the most well commented config file I've come across to. It explain more than briefly on what the option will do for you but Apache doc will tell you very detailed stuff. I usually printed out and keep it handy for references.

    What is your root directory in Apache is set to?? Make sure that the directory permission is set up correctly ( usually is 755 ). And then the file permissions are set to Apache's user. I've had those instances where I created a file with root user and then try to access it from browser and it won't see it.
