    # Redirect: Allows you to tell clients about documents that used to
    # exist in your server's namespace, but do not anymore. The client
    # will make a new request for the document at its new location.
    # Example:
    # Redirect permanent /foo http://www.example.com/bar

    # Alias: Maps web paths into filesystem paths and is used to
    # access content that does not live under the DocumentRoot.
    # Example:
    # Alias /webpath /full/filesystem/path
    # If you include a trailing / on /webpath then the server will
    # require it to be present in the URL. You will also likely
    # need to provide a <Directory> section to allow access to
    # the filesystem path.

    # ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts.

    # ScriptAliases are essentially the same as Aliases, except that
    # documents in the target directory are treated as applications and
    # run by the server when requested rather than as documents sent to
    # client. The same rules about trailing "/" apply to ScriptAlias
    # directives as to Alias.
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/var/www/cgi-bin/"
    ScriptAlias /viewvc/ "/usr/local/viewvc-1.0.7/bin/cgi/viewvc.cgi"
    ScriptAlias /query/ "/usr/local/viewvc-1.0.7/bin/cgi/query.cgi"

Subject: Viewvc is not working as expected.

I have Subversion 1.6.5 installed; Apache 2.2.11 installed. I have the
mod_dav_svn installed as well as python.
I followed the install instructions sent with the viewvc-1.0.7 package. I
made the necessary changes to my viewvc.conf file as well as my httpd.conf
I can access the repository that is referenced in the viewvc.conf file. I
ran the simple viewvc test: /usr/local/viewvc-1.0.7/bin/standalone.py -h
'cscsvlway003' /disk01/home/testrepo/ and was successfully able to access
that url. But If I try to access the url: http://<servername>/viewvc, I
get the following:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
   Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.
I don't understand what I am missing. Can someone help me troubleshoot
this please? Thank you.
