    Fresh outta the box, eh? Well, check the httpd.conf file to be sure the location of the Linux webspace is, indeed, /var/www/html and their chmod should be 755 (you don't want others to be able to write, just read and execute -- assuming you're using server-side scripting).

    Unless you've changed your hosts file to define myServer, too, you'll be forced to use localhost as your server, i.e., http://localhost/mypage.html should give you your page.

    Apache's setup recommends testing their default page, too, at http://localhost (defaults to http://localhost/index.htm) so that should have been your first test. Did that work?

    Lots to do in a setup but I'm sure we can get you going - Apache is relatively user-friendly!
