Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now. Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related. I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress (and you can read about that here). Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the new FreeBSD Diary website.

This article talks about how I had trouble publishing and how I fixed it.
The problem
After all of my trials with Apache, I finally got around to trying to publish to the virtual webs I had just set up.  However, I found a great number of problems.   My first problem was trying to remember the passwords.  After getting that sorted out, I found I was receiving an error message long the following lines:
Server Error: Server is busy.  Please try again later.

Some searching with Deja News, I found that it was a directory permission problem.   So I fixed that.  Then I began to get the following message in /var/log/httpd-error.log:

Thu Oct 22 17:21:23 1998] access to /usr/local/www/data/racingsystem/_vti_inf.html failed for nt1.www.example.org, reason: File does not exist
[Thu Oct 22 17:23:11 1998] access to /_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.exe failed for nt1.example.org, reason: user racingsystem: password mismatch

I started playing around with the permissions of the directories and files.   Eventually, I gave up and installed Apache from scratch.  Here's how I did that:

cd /usr/ports/www/apache-fp
make deinstall
make install

After restarting Apache, everything ran great!   I could publish whatever I wanted.
