Hi,

that is your prompt. It indicates that your shell is bash, version 4.1.

You have a much better chance of knowing what you are supposed to do than random people here at LQ. You must have logged into that machine with some purpose in mind. What was it?

That means that apache is working. Were you expecting something other than the apache test page?

How is this related to your initial question about what to do with the bash prompt? Are you wanting to know how to configure apache or setup a web page?

Without more information including some context, there is little chance anyone can help.

You said that you were getting the apache test page, is that the blank page to which you refer?

The test page just shows that the server is working - that is all it will deliver until you replace it with something else.

It seems to me that you do not know what you were really expecting, or what to do to change anything.

And the people here are willing to help, but cannot tell you anything useful without more information, probably a lot more information.

So maybe you could tell us about the system as a starting point. No need for a lot of technical details that you probably don't know anyway. So maybe just tell us what version of Linux it is running, how it was installed, how you want to use it, what you want to do with it.

[EDIT]You typed faster than I did...[/EDIT]

Hi,

ok this is quite weird. You just provided the real IP of a box running CentOS, listening on a number of ports. I'm sorry but I don't think I can provide the sort of help you are looking for.
