Pls. HELP -- Apache setting


Hello:

My server is "www.myserver.com" and the default homepage is located in
/var/www/index.html.

If the client go to "www.myserver.com/abc", it shows no homepage found.
I want to set that the URL: www.myserver.com/?????/????? go to the
default homepage.

What should I do?

Thanks.

MOK

You question is answered very nicely within the apache documentation or even reading through the httpd.conf file

read http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/cor...#errordocument
its half a page
but in short modify the
ErrorDocument 404 /cgi-bin/bad_urls.pl
to something like
ErrorDocument 404 /index.html or whatever your main file is called.

Hello:

Firstly, thanks for your reply. You're really a nice guy.

>but in short modify the
>ErrorDocument 404 /cgi-bin/bad_urls.pl
>to something like
>ErrorDocument 404 /index.html or whatever your main file is called. [/B][/QUOTE]

I really add a line "ErrorDocument 404 /index.html" in the httpd.conf and restart the apache (even reboot the machine later).

I still found that "www.myserver.com" go to the the default homepage /var/www/index.html
and "www.myserver.com" go to nothing.

Is there anything wrong? I am using the Debian 3.0 with kernel 2.4.
What can I do now?

thanks.

I guess im not understanding what you are trying to say. Both urls are exactly the same "www.myserver.com"

The DocumentRoot setting is the one that will set the default directory for the server. This can be done globally, or within a block defining a VirtualHost. You may also define Directory blocks.

The comments in httpd.conf are usually good enough to get you started.
