To setup a webserver on fedora just type:

service httpd start

It is really a piece of cake! Try the official site : www.apache.org for some documentation.

Apache, the most common web server all around the world, is propably installed with your linux distro. So, the only thing you have to do is just start the daemon (like the windows' service). To do that just run from a terminal window (command prompt) the following.

service httpd start

That will start the deamon (service) and you will be able to see your home page. How? If your linux box is in a LAN, just type the IP address from another PC. Let's just say that it is 192.168.0.10. So open a browser window in a pc connected to tha e LAN and in the address bar, just type:

http://192.168.0.10

Let me know how it goes!

You could use "chkconfig --list" to see if httpd is installed. If it is then use "chkconfig --level" to enable it on bootup for runlevel 3 and 5.

It is assumed RedHat installed apache rpms by default.

you can check the existence of apache on your system with

#rpm -q apache

If apache is missing, you can install it from your CDs ... better still download the latest rpm
from RedHat.


#su - root
#rpm -ivh apache<full filename>

Modify /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and start apache with

#service httpd start
