Apache 2.0 question


Hello....

Im trying to set up my http server on redhat 9.....
wich by default apache installed into /var/www/
I got the server up and running and replaced the default noindex page in /var/www/error with my own default page and it works great...but..... when ever I try to link my default page to another page
or an image it doesnt work the only images I can put on the page are ones from the internet. At first I thought it may be because I have
document root set to /var/www/html and my default page is in /var/www/error/ so I edited the httpd.conf file and mv the default page to /var/www/html then all I get is a 403 and a 404 document not found. Any help or guidance appreciated (im used to apache running right out of the box and the directory used to be in /home/httpd/html..ahhh!)......I searched the manual but wasnt anything dealing with this subject specifically.....and google wasnt any help either.....
thanks in advance

This isn' a solution to your problem but just an extra question, sorry about that: isn't /var/www just a link to apache/htdocs?

I dunno Im confused......on my suse box apache installed and automatically created a directory /home/httpd and that was where I used to put all my pages....(that was apache 1.3).......
but in the file for 2.0 it tells me that all the pages go into /var/www/html ???...... and says that if upgrading from an older version to move all directories from /home/httpd to /var/www/html ???? am i reading this right?.......arggh.....

As far as I remember the default setup on redhat is indeed

/var/www/html

for the document root where you should all your pages

just wondering, if you copied stuff from a previous installation maybe the links and references in the html will be invalid if they contain absolute paths instead of relative one's

I don't know what you have changed to this point but if all your settings in your httpd.conf were at their installed default then your default index.html should be placed in the /var/www/html directory. I never mess with the noindex.html file because once your index.html file is placed in the root /var/www/html you will never see it. Or maybe I am just not understanding what you are trying to acomplish.

I put an index file in /var/www/html and I get my default webpage.
but I cannot link images or other pages to my default page (I can link
images and pages from the internet)
and the only thing ive changed from the default conf is replace the noindex.html with my own page and i edited the httpd.conf file to include my e-mail and ip ....

Where are the images located you are trying to link?
Are they within the boundries of the document root?

FYI, I have no problems on mine with Apache 2 and I run 5 virtual domains.
I copied these from a server running Apache 1.3.27
