setting up a webpage on apache

I am new to html and apache. I have setup apache 2.0, registered the domain name,have a static ip,pointed the registrar of my domain name to my name server, created my website using NVU but here is my really stupid question. Where would I upload my website on my apache box and what is the proper way of testing if it works ok. Also some security tips would help. thanks

I believe you upload it to the /var/www directory. You should check the apache documentation and the httpd.conf (?) file. If you want to use personal web pages (like, you have to enable it in the config files and then you upload to /home/username/public_html directory.

As for checking your website, you should just try to connect to it with a web browser (actually with multiple web browsers). If you don't alter the path in the config file, there should be a "Welcome to Apache" type web page the first time you connect to it. It may even tell you where to change the setting and where to upload.
