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.

I recently wanted to set up a web server with PHP support on my Linux system. It's only a 486-133, but it'll do for learning. The Windows installation would have probably been simpler, but I'm determined to get Apache 2.0 up on my Linux machine.
Now here's what I've done so far. I compiled and installed Apache, and did a little bit of editing in httpd.conf. The problem I'm having that no browser (including Lynx, Opera, IE) will read index.html or any other file or directory that I place in the /usr/local/apache2/htdocs catalog.
What is peculiar though is that telnetting to localhost 80 and sending GET will result in getting the html file requested on the screen.
I should also mention that requesting a page that does not exist in any of the browsers I mentioned results in a 404, which means that the server is at least serving 404 pages.
I had someone tell me that permissions were the problem, but the problem still occurs even after I have changed permissions.
Here is a breakdown of the Linux system:
32 MB RAM
Another important thing is that I have a firewall set up by Arno's iptables firewall script.
How can I get Apache to work correctly? Even after I do that I'm only halfway to the finish line as I also need to install PHP but if anyone knows what the problem is I'll really appreciate your help.
