[erlang-questions] running inets httpd on windows

I followed the steps in
http://www.erlang.org/doc/doc-5.5.3/lib/inets-4.7.8/doc/html/part_frame.html

I first created a server_root path as:

C:\> mkdir \var\tmp\server_root

and then created a file called "inets.config" at the path:

      [{inets,
        [{services, [{httpd, [{file,"/var/tmp/server_root/conf/8888.conf"}]},
                     {httpd, [{file,"/var/tmp/server_root/conf/8080.conf"}]}]
         }
        ]
       }
      ].

Now I copied the examples/server_root/* to C:\var\tmp\server_root\* as:

C:\var\tmp\server_root>xcopy "c:\Program Files\erl5.5.3\lib\inets-4.7.8\examples
\server_root" . /s

Now run the erl shell as:

C:\var\tmp\server_root>erl -config inets.config
Eshell V5.5.3  (abort with ^G)
1> application:start(inets).

=ERROR REPORT==== 6-May-2007::22:41:11 ===
failed to create child spec for
[{file,"/var/tmp/server_root/conf/8888.conf"}]
due to: "mod_auth: Server configuration missed AuthDBType directive"

=ERROR REPORT==== 6-May-2007::22:41:11 ===
failed to create child spec for
[{file,"/var/tmp/server_root/conf/8080.conf"}]
due to: "httpd_conf: server_name must be specified in the config file"
ok
2>

If I comment out the ServerName line and remove mod_auth from Modules
directive, it runs without any error report. It was a temporary
makeshift, though. (What is the proper way to remove the errors?)

I can go to http://localhost:8080 and visit some links there. However,
http://localhost:8080/config.shtml and
http://localhost:8080/exec.shtml didn't work.
