This is my first experience with Apache2, using the version that comes with Mandrake, and all i would like is to host from my computer. I believe i have my server successfully running http://188.8.131.52/
however i cannot find the folder where i put things to be displayed on the site.
Also, I installed apache 1.3.xx earlier today, and it said they install in parallel, and having both should not present any problems.
I have read a number of Apache tutorials, however the mandrake install seemed to not use the default folders (I have no /usr/local/Apache/ or Apache2 folder).
After scanning the httpd.conf (which i found in /usr/local/conf [instead of /usr/local/Apache/conf/]... [and which seems like it may be from the Apache 1.3... as /usr/local does not seem like a default place that mandrake would install to]) i saw a reference to /usr/local/htdocs (i can check exactly what it says if important - ot made me believe that it might be the magic one) so i put a test.html into that folder, but that seemed to have no effect.
I did find a (new) Host Space/ folder in my /home/username/ directory, however placing things (test.html, test.jpg) here still gave me nothing when i tried http://184.108.40.206/test.html
or even http://220.127.116.11/~graham/test.html
(after the suggestion of my mac-oriented friend)
I do not know where i can look to find where the Apache 2 default folders are (or where i can find the httpd.conf used by Apache2, unless they are the same for both versions) Any suggestions are very much appreciated. I'm using the Apache 2.0.44 on MDK 9.1
