Question Not sure where to post for help with website loading


Hi Folks,

I have Debian Sarge loaded and Apache 2 Server running. But, there appears to be a chasm between the installation of these packages and how to actually do anything with them.

The Microsoft Small Business Server DHCP Server has given the Linux box a leased IP. I can not see it with my Microsoft 2000 Professional except with IE or Firefox browsers.

I am looking for a way to load my website so the Apache HTTP Server will serve it up. But, nothing can tell me, in plain language, the steps necessary to accomplish that.

When I access the IP address for the Apache HTTP Server with IE and Firefox it comes right up and says I can look at the documentation in its folder. WRONG! When I clck on the hot link for documentation I receive the error message that I am not authorized access to that information???

When I try to use FTP or Frontpage I am told the IP could not be found or the userID and password are wrong. Is there a default userID and password? If so why do I not get a login for it?

But, nothing in either help files or documentation tell me how to actually load a website to the Apache 2 Server.

What do I need to do to be authorized access to the /var/www folder I created?

How do I get the website loaded or published to the Apache HTTP Server???

Not to mention the Frontpage Extensions I will need to use until my PHP version of the website is completed?

I'm not clear about what the problem is but ... can you tell what happens when you go to the box that is running the web server and type in a browser (any browser for this test will do) the following:
http://127.0.0.1
If that works just fine then I would go to /var/log/apache/error_log and see what error messages you get when you try to access the files from "outside" the box.

Hope this helps.

Rick

Unhappy Linux box Web Browser?

Sorry Rick,

But, I do not have a Browser loaded to the Linux box yet.

I was using the Browsers on my Windows 2k Pro box to check the Apache Server Installation.

Which and how do I get a browser for the Linux box? I do not have a desktop loaded and it seemed all of the browsers required a desktop environment, which was not needed for just a web server.

Thanks

I see your point.
Well then, go to the web server itself (you do not have to go to the server physically you could use SSH) and check the web logs. That should tell you some information about the errors and go from there.

If you don't have full GUI install, try using text-mode browser. Here are some you can search for package of your distro.
w3m (recommended)
links
lynx

They are usable enough, if all you are interested in is text in a text-oriented web pages (which, most all informational web pages are).

Installed w3m still no go

Thanks for the info about the text based browsers.

I have w3m installed and accessed the default web page.

But, even when I am logged in as root I still receive the error message from Apache that I am forbidden access to the documents and directory.

I found the error log.

For the error generated when trying to access the documentation or directories from my Windows 2k machine:

[warn] child process 1981 still did not exit, sending a SIGTERM

For the error generated when using the web server box itself and logged in as root or user I receive the following error:

[error] client denied by server configuration: /usr/share/doc/apache2-doc/manual/
