hi,

i've just installed mandrake 10 and have installed apache with the install. I now seem to have a site up and running, i dialed up and took my ip address and on another computer saw the same screen that is in localhost on my linux box. so i feel like i've got it started, one simple question?

Where do i put my web docs so I can look at my website?
right now i have a cdrom with all of my files i've tried cp /mnt/cdrom/* /home/username
and cp /mnt/cdrom/* (somethingw/)/httpd  sorry can't be more specific, i'm terribly new to linux.
i understand that i'm on dialup and my ip will change. later i will have dsl
this should work for a while: http://4.240.30.123/  that is my linux box and the default page
thanks.

See to that if you are having a directory named manual-2.0 or manual-1.3 inside apache's directory , if so then extract your documents in these directory depending upon your version of the document

also how do i get apache to accept index.php as the default doc to open?

example say i go into my http://ip.xx.x.x/  and don't specify the exact index.php after it?

why won't my install of apache bring up index.php by default.

thanks,

mike

example: http://4.240.30.123/  brings up the mandrake default page

and http://4.240.30.123/index.php brings u my site..

First use the locate command to find where is the Apache directory, from there you can navigate into that particular document directory,

usage of locate command: locate apache

to be more apt, please do a search for manual-2.0 and manual-1.3 directories from root

ok i seem to have found two ways of adding files to the site. /var/www/html   and /usr/share/doc/apache2-manual-2.0.48

i rm'd index.html but still the doc comes up index.html (that was while in /usr/share/doc/apache2-manual-2.0)

i rm'd index.html but that file didn't exist in /var/www/html

so i:  locate manual-1.3 and it just carriage returns to a root prompt and does nothing.

so thot maybe i can rename it so i tried:
[root@localhost root]# cd /var/www/html
[root@localhost html]# mv index.html
mv: missing file argument
Try `mv --help' for more information.
[root@localhost html]# mv index.html index.old
mv: cannot stat `index.html': No such file or directory


then i tried : [root@localhost root]# cd /var/www/html
[root@localhost html]# mv index.html index.old
mv: cannot stat `index.html': No such file or directory

i'm sure i'm doing something wrong that most newbies do...
thanks for your patience..

Are you able to access the documents now from the URL you've mentioned?

Why do u want to remove the index.html file.?

yes i can access the documents but one in particular is missing index.html. that file is the default apache "your service is running" page and i wan t my page index.php to be the index file that loads by default. yet i am unable to delete or really even find this elusive index.html file. i would think that it would have to be in the /var/www/html dir or the /usr/share/doc/apache2-manual-2.0.48 dir. but when i shell over to those directories i am unable to affect or even locate index.html. i tried to rename index.html and no luck.
