Cool Apache v2 help on Redhat 8


Just got apache 2, whatever version came with Redhat 8, up and running. I'm interested in just putting up pictures in a folder to be seen by my friends and family. I looked at ids.sourceforge.net, as I was recommended by some friends to use this to put my pictures, but ran into trouble trying to install ImageMagick and PerlMagick..Anyways, I want something a little easier to setup or at least get my apache to just organize my pictures in a directory that I can show. I can't even get that to work..I tried testing, by putting a text file in /var/www/html..shouldn't that work? at least just show me the text? The apache site is confusing as well! Please, need some assistance or just some primer to get stuff up, especially pix..Thanks!

Yes, it should work. Could you copy httpd.conf file? It contains your Apache settings and will make it easier to help you.

copy of my httpd.conf file

Thanks Mara! Here is a copy of my httpd.conf file. This file is huge! Anyways, i left out th domain name, wasn't sure if i should keep it out there...Thanks for your help.

Another thing, I know I placed the file in the write directory because I would get the Internal Server error, indicating that my configuration maybe wrong.

I believe this file is way too long..I'll trim some of this. I trimmed out the character set config which I think may not apply to this problem. Pls indicate what I should post if its not on this thread.

## httpd.conf - configuration for the Apache web server
#
# Generated automatically... if you edit manually, the changes will be lost
# the next time you run "apacheconfig".
#

### Section 1: Global Environment
#
# The directives in this section affect the overall operation of Apache,
# such as the number of concurrent requests it can handle or where it
# can find its configuration files.
#

#
# Don't give away too much information about all the subcomponents
# we are running. Comment out this line if you don't mind remote sites
# finding out what major optional modules you are running
ServerTokens OS

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# NOTE! If you intend to place this on an NFS (or otherwise network)
# mounted filesystem then please read the LockFile documentation
# (available at <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/core.html#lockfile>);
# you will save yourself a lot of trouble.
#
# Do NOT add a slash at the end of the directory path.
#
ServerRoot "/etc/httpd"
#
# ScoreBoardFile: File used to store internal server process information.
# If unspecified (the default), the scoreboard will be stored in an
# anonymous shared memory segment, and will be unavailable to third-party
# applications.
# If specified, ensure that no two invocations of Apache share the same
# scoreboard file. The scoreboard file MUST BE STORED ON A LOCAL DISK.
#
ScoreBoardFile "/var/run/httpd.scoreboard"

#
# PidFile: The file in which the server should record its process
# identification number when it starts.
#
PidFile "/var/run/httpd.pid"

#
# Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
#
TimeOut 300

#
# KeepAlive: Whether or not to allow persistent connections (more than
# one request per connection). Set to "Off" to deactivate.
#
KeepAlive false

#
# MaxKeepAliveRequests: The maximum number of requests to allow
# during a persistent connection. Set to 0 to allow an unlimited amount.
# We recommend you leave this number high, for maximum performance.

# User/Group: The name (or #number) of the user/group to run httpd as.
# . On SCO (ODT 3) use "User nouser" and "Group nogroup".
# . On HPUX you may not be able to use shared memory as nobody, and the

# ServerAdmin: Your address, where problems with the server should be
# e-mailed. This address appears on some server-generated pages, such
# as error documents. e.g. admin@your-domain.com
#
ServerAdmin webmaster@########.com

#
# ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify itself.
# This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you specify
# it explicitly to prevent problems during startup.
#
# If this is not set to valid DNS name for your host, server-generated
# redirections will not work. See also the UseCanonicalName directive.
#
# If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here.
# You will have to access it by its address anyway, and this will make
# redirections work in a sensible way.
#
ServerName #########.com

#
# UseCanonicalName: Determines how Apache constructs self-referencing
# URLs and the SERVER_NAME and SERVER_PORT variables.
# When set "Off", Apache will use the Hostname and Port supplied
# by the client. When set "On", Apache will use the value of the
# ServerName directive.

# UserDir: The name of the directory that is appended onto a user's home
# directory if a ~user request is received.
#
# The path to the end user account 'public_html' directory must be
# accessible to the webserver userid. This usually means that ~userid
# must have permissions of 711, ~userid/public_html must have permissions
# of 755, and documents contained therein must be world-readable.
# Otherwise, the client will only receive a "403 Forbidden" message.

# The index.html.var file (a type-map) is used to deliver content-
# negotiated documents. The MultiViews Option can be used for the

# keep browsers from trying to display binary files as though they are
# text.

HostNameLookups Off

#
# ErrorLog: The location of the error log file.
# If you do not specify an ErrorLog directive within a <VirtualHost>
# container, error messages relating to that virtual host will be
# logged here. If you *do* define an error logfile for a <VirtualHost>
# container, that host's errors will be logged there and not here.

#
# If you prefer a single logfile with access, agent, and referer information
# (Combined Logfile Format) you can use the following directive.
#
#CustomLog logs/access_log combined

#
# Optionally add a line containing the server version and virtual host

# Aliases: Add here as many aliases as you need (with no limit). The format is
# Alias fakename realname
#
# Note that if you include a trailing / on fakename then the server will
# require it to be present in the URL. So "/icons" isn't aliased in this
# example, only "/icons/". If the fakename is slash-terminated, then the
# realname must also be slash terminated, and if the fakename omits the
# trailing slash, the realname must also omit it.
#
# We include the /icons/ alias for FancyIndexed directory listings. If you
# do not use FancyIndexing, you may comment this out.
#
Alias /icons/ "/var/www/icons/"

#
# This should be changed to the ServerRoot/manual/. The alias provides

BrowserMatch "RealPlayer 4\.0" force-response-1.0
BrowserMatch "Java/1\.0" force-response-1.0
BrowserMatch "JDK/1\.0" force-response-1.0

#
# The following directive disables redirects on non-GET requests for

### Section 3: Virtual Hosts
#
# VirtualHost: If you want to maintain multiple domains/hostnames on your
# machine you can setup VirtualHost containers for them. Most configurations
# use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about
# IP addresses. This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.
#
# Please see the documentation at
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/vhosts/>
# for further details before you try to setup virtual hosts.
#
# You may use the command line option '-S' to verify your virtual host
# configuration.

What happens when you try to access the web page? Do you see the Apache test page? Is Apache even running?

try /sbin/service httpd status

What does it say?

It means it listens on 8080 port. In most browsers you need
'http://youraddress:8080' to access it. You may change it to Listen 192.168.1.104:80 , then you can use 'http://youraddress'.

Another thing: the right place for your files (.html and so on) is: /var/www/html

File length is OK (there are mostly comments).

I definitely get the apache test page:

http://mydomainname.com:8080/

I had to do this because our ISP was blocking port 80.

At the least I'd like to run the hello.pl from my website, just to see if everything is running ok. That doesn't even work. The script is in
/var/www/cgi-bin/hello.pl. So, to see it I would type in
http://mydomain.com:8080/cgi-bin/hello.pl, correct??

#!/usr/bin/perl

print "Hello World, this is a test!";

As far as the error this is what I get:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@mydomain.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.


So, if I can at least get this to show correctly, everything else should be configured, right?

If you are getting the Apache test page, then it's working. I would put in a different index page in /var/www/html first before trying to run perl scripts just to make sure it's working.

As far as the perl script, that is the correct directory.

But like I said, get the main web serving issue worked out before you try the scripts.

Thanks Kenny! Yes, I seem to have it working properly. I put a test text file in /var/www/html/test.txt and then put up my browser http://mydomain.com:8080/test.txt and I was able to view the text file.

Ok. So, how do I go about putting up a directory with jpegs? Create a dir in /var/www/html/? and then throw jpegs in there? Thanks for the help.

Now just build your site right from /var/www/html/ and you site will work. Just make sure that your main home page is called index.html
