Don't hijack someone elses thread, and don't post essentially the same question twice.

just install and configure a web server like apache and off you go. Refer to standard documentation at apache.org and guides at tldp.org and if you have specific queries, please ask back here for detailed help.

I split the original hi-jack (plus TB0ne's reply) out of the
other thread and merged it with the subsequent dupe.


Cheers,
Tink

Hi,

You do need to at least attempt to do some work on your part. I suggest that you do look at some documentation as suggested by others. Look at the 'Apache HOWTO' or 'Apache.org'.

The 'Linux Document Project' is another good place to get information. You could do a search here on LQ since this subject has been covered.

The above links and others are available from 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

If I understand the first post correctly, you already have a Linux server set up. You can use ftp to look at the files.

I think you need to give a more complete description of what you are trying to do.

Still not getting it. You say in step 4 that "I can view my Linux from my Windows machines", but then ask in step 6 "I want to browse my Linux from my Windows machine".....either you CAN or you CAN'T view, which is it?

Point 5 says you want to view your windows box from linux..but that's not the problem you posted.

How are you able to "view" but not "browse"?? What are you talking about? Do you mean browse web pages/files via a web interface? Use a file manager and mount a drive?? What??
