Configuring Apache -- Step by Step !!!
Posted on 2001-08-21
Hi larry718 and everybody
(sorry if my question sounds stupid)
I'm used to windows, but currently shifting to Linux.
I never use Apache before, but only used Microsoft's Personal Web Server (very simple) to run my .html and .asp scripts.
I read up some documentation about configuring Apache servers. Some teach how to configure using all the command lines. Another teach how to configure using GUI "apacheconf" or "Apache Configuration" to configure.
(1) Is both doing the same task ?
So which one should I use ?
(2) The documentation with command lines descripts alot
on certificate, but I don't see any centificate
configuration on the GUI one ?
(3) I tried out the GUI configuration. When I try to
access a page locally, it cannot find the host that
I have set. So, assume I want to have the following
host name : icel.com
ip addr : 10.1.1.20
can you pls tell me COMPLETE configuration using the
GUI "apache configurator"
(My problem is I don't really know what each field
stands : virtual host, main host, etc... so many)
Pls kindly show me the STEP-by-STEP / COMPLETE configuration for the GUI Apache Configurator
(p/s : I'd encounter many difficulties since my first
"touch" with Linux.
It's quite hard to pick-up (unless with some help
from experts like you guys)
That's why it SCARED so many newbies away!!!)
