Re: Client error code



fixed

Hi Evan,

Yes, there's an index page specified in http config file, although if I try
and specify this file I just get "Page cannot be found" error. Do I need to
specify the whole path to the file? I'm not sure if I have the correct URL
syntax or not. The file by the way is just called INDEX.HTM.

Thanks

Adam

do you have an index page ? If you specify a specific page that you know is
in the directory do you get this error ?

It sounds like (yeah, that's a terrible way to diagnose problems I know)
that the system can't find a default home page (can't remember how this is
specified) and is therefore trying to present a directory listing. If I
remember rightly you permit this by creating a file with a certain name or
extension in the directory you want to allow browsing on (its a while since
I did this)

Hope this is some use

Regards
Evan Harris
