I recently screwed up my system and had to clean install. Since then I
haven't been able to see anything when I look at and when
I look for my-computer.local I'm told it doesn't exist.

When I type sudo apachectl graceful in the terminal it starts Apache but
doesn't go through the .conf files like it used to. And I don't have any
users in the httpd directory.

I can now see all the old 'hidden' files in my previous system folder.

Can I get back to where I was using BBEdit? Do you know if there is a book
in O'Reilly's Safari that could help me?

I now know what sudo means.
