Your apache web server document root will, by default, be in /var/www/html
. You didn't say whether your Windows FTP software is a server or a client, or both, but I will guess it is a client. You should be able to use it from Windows, to connect to your Fedora FTP server (which may, hopefully) be disabled. If it is, become root (su -
), and do
. With luck, your Windows FTP client will know how to do recursive transfers to copy your stuff to the Apache document root on the Fedora server. CGI code will go in the /var/www/cgi-bin
directory. If you do happen to have a SSH client on Windows, it can probably do the recursive copy (with the -r switch), and won't require you to run the very insecure FTP server on your Fedora host. If this is a one-time only transfer, I suggest turning the FTP server off as soon as you are complete. If you are planning to do this iteratively as you develop your web site, I suggest you find a better way to copy files, such as the aforementioned secure-copy. There are quite a few details left as an execise for the original poster. Ask back here with more specific questions as they arise.
