Webserver Setup


Hey

I am really new to Linux, but not to programming.
I am setting up a webserver box to run with my ADSL account. I am doing the install in the morning and was wondering if there is anything i should be aware of before i start. This could be software or hardware related.

Thanks,

Pete.

nope, i a complete linux noob but setting up an apache webserver is pretty heckin easy. Just edit the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file and start the httpd service and you're set.

Lol, -v is usually the more verbose option of apps, I'm guessing he meant explain what exactly you're having probs with, because there's a ton of info in easy to find places on this site and the internet. All it takes is a little reading.

ok.

Well basically I don't know which part of router I should do what to, in order for it to work with my web server. I mean I am not sure what I should be doing under PPP or the 'Phonebook', or CIP, PPTP, Bridge, etc

I just don't uderstand this area of IT. I am a VB.net programmer and Oracle OCP1, not a router person!

Thanks all for you help!

Hi,

don't know which router you are using, perhaps one of those with a webfrontend to setup ? Or a linux/ *BSD box ?

If you're running one of those with webconfiguration you should have a manual that explains how to setup this thing

To get your webserver running, setup apache on a box of your choice and redirect port 80 (tcp) from the routers WAN address to port 80 on the machine where apache is running. If you also want to use secure-http then you need to redirect port 443 tcp/udp too.
All other services and ports can be found in /etc/services, at least the first 1024, well known, ports.

If you're running a linux box check out the ipchains (kernel 2.2) or iptables (2.4) howto. it's great

cu

p.s.: if you got one of those cisco boxes, go and buy another router
