Red Hat 7.1 has changed alot from 6.0
Posted on 2001-06-04
Alot has changed in redhat 7.1.
1) There's no more inetd.conf file to disable services. What's the new way to do it? is it xinetd.conf? And if so, what should I modify?
2) How do I turn on/off ftpd? I tried to ftp to my eth0 interface in Linux and it says 'connection refused'. I found the KDE utility to change ftpd options, but it doesn't seem to be enabling the ftp service.
3) Does Linuxconf exist anymore? (I didn't use it in 6.0 anyway).
4) How do I change the directory for httpd? The new place 7.1 puts it is in '/var/(can't remember the rest)'. I created a huge '/home' partition so that I could put all my web stuff there, but 7.1 does't put it there like 6.0 did. I don't feel like repartitioning and making '/var' bigger, so I like to change the httpd directory to '/home/httpd/'. I can't do it using the GNOME utility.
I'll have more questions later, but this should be enough for this question.
