Having problems setting up web server Fedora 6

First off, I am a Linux newbie. My ultimate goal is to set up a secure web server, ftp server, and share files with my Windows machine. I have gotten most of this to work with Fedora 2, but I wanted to try core 6.

I tried to do everything the same as with Fedora 2, but when I start httpd this is what happens:

# service httpd start
start httpd [Failed]
# service httpd fullstatus
'links' package is missing

As best I understand the links package is a text based web browser. I have installed that package and it still gives me the same problem.

Any advice?

What a noble goal! This is exactly what linux is good at doing: making computers work FOR you.

I don't know fedora, so I don't know what the 'service' command does. Obviously, you have to first figure out _why_ it failed. Find the logfiles and find out what's up. They're usually in /var/log, but its different on almost every distro. Apache's main log file is usually called 'access_log'.


apache, config, httpd
