Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've just installed Apache 2.0.47 on my server running Debian 3.0 (woody), compiling and installing it from source without any problems.
Then I tried to start it up using './apachectl start'. At first it gave a warning about a missing servername, but after editing 'httpd.conf' this warning disappeared. Entering the 'apachectl' command gave no errors and the prompt quickly returned after issuing it.
However, the server did not start up. I was not able to connect to it either locally ( lynx h ttp://localhost/ or lynx h ttp://127.0.0.1/ ) or from another machine on my lan ( IE ), while pinging my server worked just fine.
The command 'ps -aux | grep httpd' did not show anything, and when I tried to stop the server with './apachectl stop' there was an error: "httpd (pid 13279?) not running".
I debian installation is pretty default as well as the installation of apache, so I really don't have a clue why it isn't working.
Please help me out!
ps. I'm not allowed to post urls so in order to post this a had to add a space between the 'h' and the 't' in the lynx command.
