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.

Ok, I made an info.php file in /etc/httpd/conf/ with the idea of being able to view it through netscape to verify that it was working. Well, I couldn't get that info.php thing to come up right and when I went to stop or start the httpd I would get an error:
could not determine the servers fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for server name.
So I changed the server name to www in the network part then went into httpd.conf and also changed the server name there.
Now when I try to stop and/or start httpd I get no error but nothing appears to happen. When I open Netscape and try to get that info page, I get an error:
Netscape network connection was refused by the server 123.456.789.123 -not the real ip-. The server may not be accepting connections or may be busy. Try connection again later.
This makes me think that it is not running, correct? I was aslo getting the netscape msg before I changed the server name. Am I maybe just not doing it right, i type httpd stop to stop it. Is that right?
So, the big question is... -drum-roll- how do I make it work?
It sounds like you wanted to verify that php was working with apache correctly, and created a file containing the function php.info(). (If this is the case, then you want to put the file in the www directory to make it viewable in Netscape)
sorry for the untimely reply, but that is exactly what i am trying to do.
so u say just put that same file into to the www folder all should work?
that sounds a touch too easy but ill give it a shot...
