You need to run the xf86config command and you need to be root to do it. Log in as root, run the command and set up your hardware.

Use the find command to find httpd. That will tell you where apache is. Su to root and type find / -name httpd.


And as a complete aside, you need to work on your LQO manners a bit. You're bumping posts after only a few hours and you're hijacking threads. If you are frustrated at the speed at which you are getting answers, may I strongly suggest a vigorous workout of the Search button or perhaps even Google. Otherwise, a little patience will go a long way.

got ya.

this is what i got

/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd
/etc/httpd
/var/log/httpd
/var/cache/httpd
/var/lock/subsys/httpd



so what do i do from there?

i dont know if this is write but i went into a folder and found my way into the /etc folder then found /etc/httpd/ and so there is some apache files there and a addon-modules folder that has apache stuff in there. if i am correct on being there let me know other then that i'll wait for someone to tell me how to get apache started and how to start a server. thanks

The file you are looking for is called apachectl and it is a script that starts, stops or restarts the apache server. If you find it (it should be in the bin subdirectory below the apache home directory) , simply type apachectl start and the web server should be up and running. You can use ps -A to see if there is a process called httpd (that is the web server daemon) or you can point a browser at localhost and you should see an apache welcome page.

so do i have to type in start apachectl everytime i reboot or will it come on automatically.

I opened a web browser and typed in localhost took me to http://localholst/ and i think its right b/c it states that if i see this instead of a webpage its b/c the server is not yet fully configured or is under and upgrade. so i think its right.

i dont see it say anything about how to set it up. i just need it to store some files and pics for like avatars till i learn more about it.

n/m hehe just found it. compiling and insstalling and starting and reference page and all that. thank you again

You're going to have to dig into your startup scripts to find out if it comes up a boot time. Look in your /etc/rc.d directory for a script that calls apachectl (on Slackware it is called rc.httpd) If that script is exectued on start-up then you are good to go.

As for using Apache, you are going to have to read the documentation.
