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.

My webserver has been up and running for quite a while.. 6 months or more. All of a sudden yesterday my sites didn't work and I logged in and apache stopped running. When I try to restart apache it says that it started ok, no errors in the logs, but it definitely didn't start. I haven't made any changes to the configs or done any updates lately. Has anyone ran into something like this and have any idea where I should start looking or what I might do to get it running again?
Distribution: Slackware 12 Kernel 2.6.24 - probably upgraded by now
duryodhan: crack kills. And everyone would benefit if things would stay on topic here.
hmm ... en3r0 had said that he had gotten it working. I was just telling him that ,next time, he could try using XAMPP.
From the site :
Many people know from their own experience that it's not easy to install an Apache web server and it gets harder if you want to add MySQL, PHP and Perl. XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution containing MySQL, PHP and Perl. XAMPP is really very easy to install and to use - just download, extract and start.
I think this is certainly not OT. This is just an example of another way to get Apache working. Anyways Slackware doesn't come with the latest Apache... it would really help you if you get XAMP, and hell getting MySQL PHP and apache working together is HARD on Slackware.
I suppose it could be viewed that way but I personally wouldn't use xampp. I already resolved my problem by going back with Gentoo. I just hoped in the past that I would get some true feedback and useful help with my problems with Slack since I was actually giving it a chance. I think that if Slackware maybe had its own forums then maybe.. just maybe there would be better overall support. Looking back I just picked the wrong place to seek support. I will stay away from here now.
