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?
