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.

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 setup Red Hat 9 that came with apache server. The server is running and I'm getting the test page in the browser. I've looked everwhere, I can't find what my default document folder is.
according to the config it should be /var/www/html - I've put in a index.htm file but still shows the test page, I've also created a folder in /var/www/html named "test" and when I go to http://192.168.5.6/test it says page cannot be found.
What should I do to get the server functioning properly?
the first line telle that the diretory whichwill be called is /plugins /php
and the directory index tells the order in which it will look for default pages
so see he the page u want is in the directory index or vice versa
Thanks once again, I found out that the config was at one point pointing to somewhere else, I fixed that.
Now another issue, I'm trying to run a .cgi file and it just doesn't want to execute, it simply shows me the file as text file in my browser. I'm running some version of perl, can I simply rename the file to .pl and run it?
doing http://mysite/cgi-bin/file.cgi doesn't find the file, infact the browser gets a 404 when I try to hit the cgi-bin as it is. I've looked in the config and removed the Alias (commented it) but that doesn't want to make any difference.
@kevinatkins: Where do i tell my apache to execute these files, some pointers please.
lol yeah i hate it when people get help and not post the results.
And this thing is gonna be my web proxy server, my employers are cheap enough to recently put a surfing control device on the network and very recently they were going vigilant on it. Well, some people don't learn and I hate it when I'm making my bosses over 100,000 bucks a year and I can't browse.
