 	The next step is to find your Apache error log, and look at what it 
says.  Apache doesn't send all the information about the error message to the 
web browser (for security reasons), so it writes extra information into the 
error log.  The error log could be anywhere, depending on your Apache 
configuration (I'm a Linux guy, so I don't know where is is on Windows).

 	This will tell you where Apache is looking for the file.  Then, when 
you know that, move the file to where Apache wants it to be.
