    Hi
    I want to make my computer an http server and I am runnig MDK 10.1 and the most imortant fact is that I am completley unfamiliar with how a server runs on any machine. Can someone suggest me some links which I could follow to get my basics right. Thanks in advance....

    www.apache.org, this is the home page of apache web server project. You'll find install guides and server sources there. For more docs and turorials google for keywords apache+server+install+guide But basically everything is simple, you may want to download sources, unpack, switch to extracted folder run 2 commands as regular user
    Code:
    ./configure
    make
    and
    Code:
    make install
    as root. And start web server
    Code:
    apachectl start
    also as root. Open http://127.0.0.1 in web browser and you'll see apache default page. Contents for this page are located in htdocs folder, somewhere in /usr/local/apache by default, if not defined explicitly while running ./configure script. To see list of available options for configuring apache installation run
    Code:
    ./configure --help
