So I got tired of seeing advertisements on every web page I visit, really really tired. I downloaded a hosts file (http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/) that declares a huge list of servers known to display ads as 127.0.0.1, which redirects it to the copy of apache I run continuously. This of course speeds up page loads quite a bit, but it would display "page not found" errors everywhere an ad used to be. Sometimes it would just have a picture frame, but the picture would be empty. In any case, I was happy that the ads were gone.
I have .htaccess and trans.gif stored in the root of my webserver's directory, which is /Library/WebServer/Documents. I adjusted the entry for that directory to be "AllowOverride All" just in case. Now the server is returning "Internal Server Error" instead of page not found. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance!
