Sounds like time for a basic networking check. I would temporarily replace your hosts file with the single line: 127.0.0.1 localhost taxomita # note: dropping the '.dev' And then try pinging each of those three addresses. Once you know that's working, work on Apache. Personally, I'd revert to the original httpd.conf, make the absolute minimum changes to reflect the DocumentRoot for the default server, and get access as "localhost" working first. First, run `apache -t` to test the httpd.conf each time you edit it. When you move on to setting up the virtual server, you should also run `apache -S`. You'll uncover problems that won't prevent Apache from restarting, but *will* prevent it from working as you wish it to. > My http.conf file: > ================== Next time grep out the comments, OK? :-)  I'd also avoid using directory names with spaces in them just generally-- make them C:/www/localhost, C:/www/taxomita or some such convention...
