All was working fine and I <gulp> rebooted my pi. Once it came back up - nothing. "sudo /etc/init.d/webiopi start" loads with no errors but the tutorials don't even work. I removed every trace of WebioPI and reinstalled it, same deal.

Localhost:8000 shows my (normal but no longer working) index from my project directory. 

If I replace my index with the original (Light) project index, it looks normal - doesn't work.

If d-click on any of the included index files, I get a blank page.

If I drag "/home/pi/WebIOPi-0.7.1/htdocs/index.html" into my browser, I get the "WebioPI Main Menu" page, but when I select an option, I get "Your file was not found It may have been moved or deleted."

SSooooo Frustrating! To have had all this working then it goes to h&ll on a reboot!

I do remember having to mod an init file but cannot find that info now. Anyone recall this ? ? ?

Yay, got it figured out! I needed to start up WebioPI using "sudo webiopi -c /etc/webiopi/config" in order for my file paths to be "seen". Not sure where the "init.d" came from...
