    Open a terminal window. Type "su -" and enter the root password.

    Type "yum install httpd; chkconfig --on httpd".

    Edit /etc/sysconfig/iptables. Make sure you have a line allowing for TCP/80.

    Create your site in /var/www/html.

    Create a file in /etc/apache2/sites-available/ named what you want it to be, link to it from /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ and in this file have what you need ie:
    <VirtualHost *:80>
            DocumentRoot /var/www/html/
            ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/example-error.log
            CustomLog /var/log/apache2/example-access.log combined 
            # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
            # alert, emerg.
            LogLevel warn
            ServerSignature On
            <Directory /var/www/html/>
                    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                    AllowOverride None
                    Order allow,deny
                    allow from all
    If you are talking about nameserver settings, then you either need to inform the root servers you're running the nameserver, and configure named to handle your request, or you'd use something like to handle your DNS and point the to your IP.

    Correction. I should have said "chkconfig httpd on" instead of the other. The /etc/apache2/sites-enabled is something specific to Ubuntu and I think Red Hat (CentOS) is being used here.

    By 'Alis' do you mean alias? Locally add it to /etc/hosts. If you want people to actually be able to find your site, you'll need to add this to DNS. I have no idea what your DNS is like on your network, but that is what you should investigate into.

    Yes, the "sites-enabled" is a Debian (and Debian distros) default. A quick "include /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/*" fixes that, but I digress. What Redhead added, just add to the end of your httpd.conf file.
