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.

This is a fairly quick question on the slackware apache, Well i'm sitting in the directory of '/etc/apache' and i'm just wondering where i can install it/set it up. Well I think i'm in the right directory of setting it up
Well, /etc/apache directory is the correct directory to configure Apache. The file is httpd.conf. There are several settings that you will need to adjust. The best thing os to go through the file slowly, it is really very well documented.
As for the actual web pages, the default DocumentRoot is set to /var/www/htdocs. But this is the location for the web pages that it should serve. Of course this can be changed in the httpd.conf file.
If Apcahe is running you should be able to view http://127.0.0.1 as the default page that is there now. It basically states that Apache is working.
Personally I install my apache/php/mysql all from source as I don't like the default slack packs for it. If you want more detailed info on how to do the php/apache thing go here... you may have to change the apache version and the php version but this seems to work for me. If you want to keep the slack install, then completely ignore me
I installed it the basic way not phph/apache and found that things were only difficult to allow access to. Like pics and other thngs like that, Finally I just stated putting everythin in the htdocs foler and it all started working. It just took me a while to figure that one out.....
