The error is very common "Unable to Connect"

I have been sorting out in my head why I should be using index.php rather than index.html.
My pages are dynamic so I am using index.html.

I modified my httpd.conf file because it only had index.html

<IfModule dir_module>
 
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html
 
<IfModule>

 


 

I am on a macbookpro 10.8.3 and this Document Root is standard.
Document Root   Library/WebServer/Documents
so my path is:     Library/WebServer/Documents/dwwdSite

(dwwdSite = DreamWeaverWebDevelopmentSite)

I set up the server settings as shown in the .pngs. Have to attach them separately.

So many people know this stuff intuitively.  Sorry that I am rusty. (not a novice).

Can someone spot and Explain to me Why I am getting this error.  I am really stuck.
When I do this from within Netbeans /localhost/phpWithAlex/index.php  I get output in the browser.

It is not working with Dreamweaver.

Thanks.
