1. Newbie - (dumb CERN httpd question, Linux as server, which server ?)
Here are a few ignorant questions (I have scoured the newsgroups, and just
can't find what I'm looking for, so please go easy on me!). :
A friend and I are planning to start a Web server to allow small businesses in
our area to advertise. We want to do CGI's, image maps, forms, etc ... I have
a few questions for anyone to answer (please send me email) :
1) The more research I do, it seems like Linux is the best way to go over a
Windows based server setup. Does anyone dispute this or have input on it ?
much of a concern is security (I read the CERN security FAQ last night)?
2) Assuming we run with Linux, which server should we run (CERN, NCSA,
3) I have CERN httpd on my linux partition, and am able to run it, but I get
strangest problem. I know it's my ignorance , but I can't seem to find the
answer anywhere. I have a directory that I set up in the /etc/httpd.conf file
and when i do a http://myhost/ using Netscape (v1.x), I get the directory, just
as I expect. When click on my test html documents, all I get is the list
again. I am running the server in verbose mode, and do not see any glaring
problems (but I am new to this stuff!). I see where it resolves my html
document name and figures out the content length, but still no document.
Here's the really weird part - I set up a welcome.html document, and when I use
the URL specified above, I get the document! This doc has links to my other
test documents, but
when I click on the link, nothing ! I read about all of the content types that
cern httpd needs to be able to handle, but I also read that they are all almost
builtin to the web server app. I'm at my wits end with my own ignorance!
Thanks for any response
