Help getting Apache to see FluxBB on my computer


Here's my problem:

I am trying to install FluxBB on my Ubuntu netbook. I already have the dependencies -- Apache, PHP, and SQLite -- installed. However, navigating to my IP address and the 'install.php file returns an HTTP 404. Is there any configuration I need to edit to get Apache to see the forum software (located in /www)? I tried to edit httpd.conf to no avail.

Post your httpd.conf and tell us where you installed FluxBB. Usually it's in /var/www.

You may also need to
Code:
chown -R www-data\: /var/www
chmod -R 755 /var/www
Since you're using Ubuntu I'm assuming www-data user/group exists and that your apache htdoc folder is located in /var/www.

The only way to know for sure is for you to post your httpd.conf.

Okay, now it's working. Thank you, now I know it's /var/www, not just /www. My mistake. Marking as Solved.
