I'm having a tough time with websharing.
I sell stock images. To deliver the files, I use websharing. If you bought an image from me, In OS9, I would simply put that image in a folder with your name on it and drop it into my websharing folder. I would tell you to point your browser to: http://myipaddress/yourfoder
Then you would see the contents of that folder and click and drag the link to your desktop to download the file.
Now I can't do it. I have turned websharing on, I put the folders in the correct folder and when I view them locally, it works. I have noticed that my browser changes my IP address to 127.0.0.1/yourfolder
When I send other people http://myipaddress
it works. But, when they try, http://myipaddress/theirfolder
the get an error saying that their browser tried to connect to 127.0.0.1 and failed. It would appear that my machine is redicecting their requests to a local address and then they can't connect. I looked at my error logs and found this:
[alert] httpd: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name,
using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName
fopen: Permission denied
I don't understand how my ip address could not be fully qualified, since users can view the main directory, just not subdirectories.
Thanks for reading that epic description. I hope someone can help me, I'm a desperate newbie.
