In Sys Pref/Sharing, when I start Personal Web Sharing, there are 2 URL's at the bottom. The folder for my Personal Website I gather is the "Sites" folder. Where is the folder for the Computer Website URL so I can change the content in it from the Apache page that tells me that the install of Apache is successful to content I want to access from my Blackberry Playbook or another computer? Thanks, Ken.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 2gig, 2gigs ram

    Hi Ken, when you open System Preferences>Sharing & enable/highlight Web Sharing, you'll see two places, one for your User, & a compurter wide one...

     

    Users/YourUserName/Sites/

     

    Library/Web Server/

    This may not work without changes to your router's firewall. In my case the URL is http://192.168.0.3/ which only works for other computers on my home network unless I change my router's settings.
