Why did this que get downvoted twice ? https://salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/11328/rest-api-web-application-not-working

I thought the question had enough details. Even looking at the answers from this link, the user has done his/ her own research before the question was posted. Downvoting in general

Is there something I am missing. I was following the thread and got surprised to see down votes. I might have obviously missed something about down vote policies

  • the fact that there are no answers and a long list of comments with questions would indicate that the user didn't really post enough details or do any reasearch.

I'm not sure, but I have two ideas:

  1. The question is about setting up a non-Salesforce application for testing a REST API. While based on a Salesforce tutorial, the question is about the non-SF component.
  2. It's hard to troubleshoot the app setup. It is running in Apache, but Apache has a lot of configuration options and this isn't really the best forum for helping configure Apache installs.
