Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hello everyone. I am trying to set up a webserver on my redhat 8.0 box. I have compiled Apache, and a firewall to override the defult settings(the tool that came with the install was buggy). I have port open, yet I still can not connect through a web browser. On linux the error i get is "connection refused by *ip here* ". On windows Its is a simple host not found. I have pinged from other computers, and the box is live. So as you can see I am at a loss here. I have tried eveything I can think of, but with no answer. Any help would be great. Thank you. Also, I have a static ip, if that helps in any way.
We are not setting up a domain. I could see what you mean though. We simply want to get it viewable before we work on the domain set up. So we are trying to access the page by ip. Also, I ran nmap through the terminal, to see if port 80 was open, and it says it is not. This is odd, because firestarter says it is. I think something is wrong with the sercuity level, and that for some odd reason I cannot open that port.
On the machine that is running the webserver you should be able to view http://127.0.0.1 or http://localhost that is assuming you have a gui to work with on that box.
If not you might not have the server running, try
and see if there are any error messages, the httpd.conf may need to be edited if there are errors or if it says that the process is already running, then disable your firewall to see if its the problem.
OK that help in a way. I can now see the test page, saying that it is up and running. Now when I say I can see it, I mean myself on the computer that is the server. I am reaching it from the ip, not localhost. Also port 80 is open, finaly. As for outside this box, no one can view it. I think it might be a problem with the DNS configuring, only because i am not farmilair with it. I said to put in the ip, if i didnt have an name. So I put in the box's ip. Also, a minor problem is that the directory wont change, i looked in the error logs, and it says that "directory index is forbidden by rule." So i changed it 4 times, in different places. Still, same error. Thanks to those helping.
