    Apache. n00b wants to learn it. help.

    I've managed to install Apache on my laptop and i just wanted to, well, learn the damn thing. hehe I've bought a book which gave me a general idea of what apache does but does not specialize in teaching me how to do Apache (sorry, it's a linux book not an apache book). Anyway, i also tried reading some documents i googled but it takes me 15minutes to get through 1 page. That's not bad really but the sad thing is it's like i still have to decode the "encrypted" text before me. Does anyone know where i can find the simplest doc (how to's or tutorials) to get me started with apache? thanks,

    What do you exactly want to do?

    As for documentation ... rute worked well for me.

    Learning is easier when you know what you want to do though.

    Apache. n00b wants to learn it. help.

    I've read that more than 60% of internet web sites are on apache web servers. I'm sort of just experimenting on what i can do with networks.
    Oh yeah and i agree bai, it would be a lot easier if i actually had some short term goals (little quests hehe), i guess stepping stone projects to learning.

    So how about this: I have a computer at home that is always online (PC1). I also have a computer at the office (PC2) that can do dial up internet. I'm gonna try to put up a little website that i can access from PC2 thru the internet. how's that for a start?

    anyway, will look into that link. thanks man.

    On Slackware right?

    For a start, Slack already has an Apache package. If you have that installed ... make sure you have /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd executable and it'll start up on boot. See if you already have Apache installed by running "apachectl restart" as root.

    All configuration files are either in /etc/apache2/httpd.conf or /etc/apache/httpd.conf depending on which version of Apache you have.

    The configuration file itself is self explanatory.
