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 installed apache by unzipping it,
-running ./config --prefix=/usr/local/apache
-typing "make" as root then "make install" as root,
-did "chown -R shawn /usr/local/apache" (to make damn sure i can use it)
-changed the document root in BOTH places in httpd.conf to /usr/local/apache/realdocs
-did the command "chmod -R 755 /usr/local/apache/realdocs" (to make damn sure it can be read)
-did the command "./httpd start" while in the apache/bin folder
i run a server with dns2go (d2g.com) so i ran that program, when i "ping shawnserver.d2g.com" in console it DOES ping my IP so i know that works. i type shawnserver.d2g.com in the URL bar of Mozilla and it tells me the connection was actively refused. i type 'localhost' as the URL and it refuses....... why? i ran a website on Linux before and it didn't give me problems like this , same distro of Linux even....
When you .configure Apache as non-root, apache sets your default port to 8080 (it assumes you are running as non-root, and would therefore be unable to bind to port 80), edit your conf file, find the port and Listen directives, and change from 8080 to 80.
