apache httpd document problem [SOLVED]


I downloaded apache httpd 2.2.2 and installed it. The installation went fine, however, I am unable to read its documentation. Nor did it add any man entries.

In its docs/manual/ directory, there are a bunch of html files, but those files contain nothing but a bunch of "URI:XXXXXXX". The actual manuals are contained in files ended with html.<locale> (such as html.en, html.de, etc). If I open those files using a web browser, I can read that file, however, all the links in that file refers to .html again instead of .html.<locale>

Do I have to manually remove all the .html and mv all the .html.en as .html files? Or is there a better way of doing so, only that I didn't know?

Also, how do I get the httpd to add its man entries?

[SOLUTION]
check conf/extra/httpd-languages.conf and make sure DefaultLanguage is set. Also make sure the main conf file has the reference line to httpd-languages.conf uncommented.

If your installation went OK you should be able to access your documentation by browsing to your web server. Have you tried http://localhost/manual?

as it turned out, the problem was that the file conf/extra/httpd-languages.conf didn't have DefaultLanguage set for anything. So I set it to be en, and then also uncommented the reference line to httpd-languages.conf in the main conf file, and it worked...
