I no longer wish to use /opt/lampp/htdocs/ as my lampp document root. I went into httpd.conf and edited it to reflect this, the new document root:
DocumentRoot "/home/work/Dropbox/Websites/" Directory "/home/work/Dropbox/Websites/" (it has tags)
I type in
localhost/name_of_website_directory and nothing shows. I even made a test.html file in the Websites directory - that won't load with
localhost/test.html it just gives me a 403 and won't load a thing.
I restarted Apache and Lampp and cleared my browser cache, still no luck.
