    Ubuntu server samba share visible at Win8 client but not accessible

    Hi all,
    I am a little stuck and appreciate your advice.

    I have set up an APACHE2 web development server using Ubuntu 13.04 and have also set up SAMBA for file sharing. I have successfully managed to set up shares for folders / files, but what I was now trying to do is set up a file share for my web site address, so as I develop the site I can edit the HTML / PHP files directly off the server.

    Basically I followed the instructions given to me in one of my previous questions but the result is not the same! I can "see" the share in W8 but when I try and access it I get told by Windows the "site name may be mispelled".

    Here's what I have done:

    1. Created a new folder for my test site at /etc/apache2/sites-available/opencart
    2. Added the smbd.conf the folder specifications:
    Code:
    [ocsite]
        comment = Ubuntu File Server Share For Web Server
        path = /etc/apache2/sites-available/opencart
        browsable = yes
        guest ok = no
        read only = no
        create mask = 0755
        read list = lf
    3. restarted both smbd and nmbd
    Code:
    sudo restart smbd
    sudo restart nmbd
    4. Set up access rights to the folder (for user "tm" as owner, only user with rw access, others can read only) as follows:
    Code:
    sudo chown tm:tm /etc/apache2/sites-available/opencart
    sudo chmod 755 /etc/apache2/sites-available/opencart
    The result is I can "see" the share but Windows cannot connect to it and says it may be mispelled.

    Thanks in advance for any help you provide.
