Thats not actually true you have to remember that the document root for
the server is /var/www/html and so when you are telling your browser to
point to the following
http://rocket.rocketman.com/var/www/html/index.html what you really
are doing is the following /var/www/html/var/www/html/index.html which
would bring an error message like you are receiving what you would want
to do is the following. http://rocket.rocketman.com which is like saying
in your case http://127.0.0.1 which is localhost. Hope that clears
things up a bit.
