How to publish a webpage in local server?


Good morning teachers,

I am currently doing a student project which involves designing a webpage and using embed players like vlc in it. I am required to use a STB and display the content on TV. I need to publish my webpage 1st b4 i can display it on TV. I have read other similar post but i am having difficulties understanding them. I just want the STB to be able to browse to my webpage thats all for now. Any help will be appreciated!

Thank you. Sorry 4 bad english.

xampp provides a local web server testing environment. Is this what you are looking for?

FC9 comes with apache, so there's no need for xampp in my opinion (but that is personal). miles brennan's linux home server howto is a guide to setup a home server (currently for FC5 but I suppose that it can be used for FC9 as well).

Once apache is running, you can browse http://localhost and you will probably some message lik 'it works'.

Once your STB has an IP address and is connected to your network you should see the same page (if the STB looks in the same web directory).

Make sure httpd is running. Go to terminal, login as root, then put
service httpd restart(just in case it's running).

Then put your web page index, html files, pics, whatever in your /var/www/html/ directory and voila. Then open up a browser and put in your local ip address and voila.

Test for running server: http://localhost or http://127.0.0.1
Save your webpage in /var/www/html under the name my.html
Test for your webpage: http://localhost/my.html or http://127.0.0.1/my.html
Use 'Bluefish' to design a basic webpage ('yum install bluefish' if not installed already)
Embedding any sort of players is rather a fact of installing modules for your web browser.

Talking

Thanks for all these replies. Sorry that i am 2 months late in trying this. (Had other things to do)

I tried putting my file in /var/www/html and i am able to see my own webpage. However, the STB i am using is unable to see my webpage. I tried using another PC in the same LAN to access http://my_ip_address , but also cant see the webpage.

Just to give more details, the PC i used to access my webpage is Windows. So does it matter?? Thanks again for the advices. Is there a way to troubleshoot this?

Many Thank you *BOW*
