i need to set up a website and i used apache with fc1, but now i have fc3. my friend helped me last time and i have no idea what he did. i know that i need to change httpd.conf and that i need to specify where to look for the files to display, i need to specify to use port 81 (it just has to be that way), and i remember having problems changing the site from the apache default page to my page. i kind of need step by step help on this. thanks

the httpd.conf usually is on /etc/httpd/conf/.... If you install it using fedora package.

Then you need to make sure the on httpd.conf has some of this:

Listen=81 ---- Since you want your webserver to listen to this port
User=apache --- you must create this user
Group=apache -- you must create this group
ServerName="your server name" ---- the hostname of your server
DocumentRoot="/var/www/html" --- this is where your html file should be
<Directory "/var/www/html"> --- you need to make sure the this is enabled
