Apache on RedHat 8.0


I'm very new to this whole Linux world, and my project for a school independant study is to set up an Apache server on my RedHat machine. I have this great little window that just has me typing in names and some other info, but I don't know what is what. Hostnames, servernames, e-mails...aaahhh . I've tried finding tutorials and other help pages, but none of them seem to be the right thing. Either they're 3 years old, and Apache is now set up differently, or it's all in techno babble that I don't understand. Sorry to be so needy, but HELP!

Setting up apache is fairly simply task, fine-tuning the configuration is the task that takes up most of the time. I'd suggest you follow Apache v2.0 - Compiling and Installing

If you need more help Margarita just let me know!

BTW, are you born 08th November 1984? And where are you from? Europe?

I guess you need a book about networking in general and then about Apache... My suggestions: "Network Administrator's Guide" (or a similar title) and "Apache" from O'Reilly (the "Network.." book can be downloaded for free for sure, the second one - I don't remember).

Sorry for thinking that you're a european, just thought there should be a bit more girls from europe into computer stuff and you might have been one then


Oh and BTW, if you need help with the configuring proccess just type ./configure --help to see all options.

Question Still very lost with Apache

okay. I am sooo lost! it's not working. I can't figure out what to do! So far this is what I have:
RedHat 8.0 that has Apache on it:
Gnome menu - Server Settings - HTTP Server brings up this little box that I am supposed to be able to configure the server with.
What do I put into the fields?? I have a server name, and a web master e-mail, then something about available addresses. When I put i n the things that I think they should be, I still can't get that Apache test page. What else do I need to do to set this up? WHere do I put my HHTP files once this is going??? Ohhhh...I am soo lost! Sorry to ask so much...I'm off to try and find it myself...



HEY! NEVER MIND! I got it working. Now I have to figure out where to put my pages and stuff...hee hee hee... IT WORKS!!

Usually by default it'll be setup to put your pages in /var/www but you can change this by editing the httpd.conf file and of course restarting the server for it to take effect.

Well...I figured out how to put in my pages. and it now works!
Now my task is to set up sendmail so we can have e-mail accounts on this machine as well. Anyone ever done this? I'm following this tutorial, but don't know where to download the file, and I always get an error at the ./config line:

http://devel-home.kde.org/~ksmt/ksendmail.html

the error is this - configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

help?

Margarita, please ask your last question in a SEPERATE (meaning = NEW) thread cause it has nothing related to your original question!
Quote:

This means cc (your c compiler) is not in the search path ... use a new thread to ask the question again plz!

Try
export CC=gcc
and it should work now. Of course, make sure you have gcc installed in your system. If not, install it.

You might not have gcc installed on your system, run
rpm -qa|grep gcc
and see what is returned.
