I have Apache installed and running fine but I can't figure out how to change the default page with comes up when you have Apache running. I signed on with www.no-ip.com which points to my Apache server. I want it to pull my website I created.

Machine wars,
Your name is not up to par with the Javaranch naming standard. Please choose a name that is.

Hi Machine,
don't normally help machines especially web deployment types, but you could look in your apache installation directory for conf/httpd.conf
in this file you'll fine a variable assignment called DocumentSource and this points to the directory where your Apache welcome page is.
In apache 2.0.35 it looks as though it is dependent on your browser's locale, e.g. for US it is index.html.en

Good luck

I have seen things you people would not believe, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, c-beams sparkling in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.
