Running a web server with Apache?


Hello.

I have a system running Mandrake 9.1 that isn't really doing anything special. I was thinking of hosting my website from it and was curious as to what I need to do?

I've been told it's easier than running my Windows Server 2003 server, and I managed to get IIS 6 running and what not, so if I had a tutorial on how to get Mandrake to run Apache and get my server running on Linux, I'm sure I could follow the directions easy enough. What do I need to do to get my site running? (Just sick of the Microsoft BS...)

Thanks,

Anth3m

there is not really much to it...
to get the most basic server up and running the only thing you'd need to change is the line "Listen" (which is the machines IP) in your httpd.conf file..and then start apachectl....that is if you put the webpage in the default folder, and if you dont then you will have to change the setting, which off the top of my head, i think it is "DocumentRoot"....
and if your connected through a router then you'll have to forward port 80 to the machine hosting the site, and if your IP address is dynamic, then i suggest you go to www.no-ip.com ....
hopefully that narrows things down a little...

p.s. even if you have a static ip, i still suggest no-ip cause you can set up a simple website address to forward people to your box with the website instead of using http://123.112.23.12 as your address.
