I am running Apache 2.0.59 on my mac (10.5.7). I have a domain name ([b]www.example.com[/b]) registered with godaddy that remains on their nameservers and forwards (w/o masking) to my home ip. The connection works and I can view my site so there are no problems with routing, port-listening, or directory hierarchies.
The problem is that once i'm at my site, the address bar of my browser lists my server's ip followed by any additional directories ([b]188.8.131.52/home.php[/b]). I would like for the url to show instead ([b]www.example.com/home.php[/b] ).
From what I've read so far I think I need to change something in the httpd.conf file, but I'm not sure what that is. I've tried changing the NameServer directive to "[b]NameServer www.example.com[/b]" and I've tried using virtualhosts NameServer ... to no avail.
Am I missing something totally obvious? It seems like this should be a lot easier.
