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 ;am trying to transfer my perl website from xp to linux. I put the appropriate file to the /var/www and /var/www/cgi-bin but when i am trying htp://localhost from konqueror it doesnt shoe my webpage it just says it cannot connect to localhost. do you know why? i have configured httpd.conf but still i cannot see my webpage. any ideas on how to proceed?
Moved: Not a Success Story and seems more suitable in Newbie. May I remind you to try and place your threads in the most appropiate forum, its not rocket science you know. Asking a question is not a Success Story. Regards.
1. Yes, please check if httpd is in fact running, that would help .
2. You say it's a perl website, well, do you have the perl module loaded for apache? Otherwise, it will not serve out your perl webpage.
3. Your cgi-bin is being Scriptaliased correct? You will need to make sure it is as well.
4. Are you running any sort of firewalls?
5. Have you tried just putting in a test index.html file in the documentroot (/var/www) and seeing if that showed up anything when you "http://localhost"?
Either on Knoppix neither in Gnoppix as well i can run service httpd status, it says command not found. In redhat it works but not on my Gnoppix Debian Distro. Do i have to use another command for that?
ps. trickykid i thought this was the appropriate forum to ask this question!
Not all linux distrobutions are the same. You can start services at boot time with "chkconfig" command on redhat but there is no such command on debian. The only way (could be others) that I know how to start services is by performing soft links like how tmorton has stated. The Debian distro requires more manual labor than say redhat.
