with apache 1

#> httpd

starts the web server. The 'files' are located in

/var/www/htdocs/

what i did is erase everything in that directory, and then i put in my own 'index.html' and such is my 'website'

http://67.171.188.37/

I think you can help yourself, Greg:

man httpd;man httpd.conf

Then go here http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
And learn how to ask questions

Your ip address needs to be routable. If you are behind a nat router that's connected to the internet you need for it to forward ports 80 and 443 to your machine. If you have the address supplied by your isp you will use that. If your machine has this address you can get it from ifconfig. If the router has the ip address you can get it from the router.

[david@RedHatLinux david]$ /sbin/ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
inet addr:192.168.1.241 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:52135 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
RX bytes:37145630 (35.4 Mb) TX bytes:6118881 (5.8 Mb)
Interrupt:11 Base address:0x9000

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1

RX bytes:269560724 (257.0 Mb) TX bytes:269560724 (257.0 Mb)

lo:2 Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.2 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:535 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:32100 (31.3 Kb)


For testing you can use this address on the httpd server...

127.0.0.1

inet addr = ip addr

lo = loopback

eth0 is the first nic on your box.

I am still confused

Okay,
So istarted the httpd as far as I know. My ip address is 64.4.118.166
So what now? I created a symbolic link from my /home/greg/ directory to /var/www/catalog so I could access my files.
So what am I supposed to type in to find it on the web and how come I can't get it typing the ip address? -Greg
What' the deal with the ports? I can't figure it out,

Ports provide a way for one host to hold many sessions on the same box, apache should be listening on port 80 for requests.

As far as connecting to your IP do you have DSL or Cable, and is the computer behind a router on your network?
