    Replying from my CentOS box, i have some strange results

    Here is the result of the above command:
    [root@server Silman]# ps aux | grep httpd
    root     24898  0.0  0.0 103232   816 pts/0    S+   22:25   0:00 grep httpd

    I did this just to be double safe and this is where the weird happens:

    [root@server Silman]# service httpd start
    Starting httpd: Warning: DocumentRoot [/var/www/html/apps] does not exist
    Syntax error on line 21 of /etc/httpd/conf/sites-enabled/000-apps.vhost:
    Wrapper /var/www/html/php-fcgi-scripts/apps/.php-fcgi-starter cannot be accessed: (2)No such file or directory
    [root@server Silman]# chkconfig httpd on

    what does that error on the httpd start mean?

    interestingly enough, both conf and conf.d are both completely empty...that cant be right.

    i see, well i have all summer to learn and i really want to get this stuff down! Is there other guides I can follow for setting up a servers? Can you recommend any books/websites/etc that might help me on my quest to learn this stuff. My goal is to get a working webserver by mid-late july so i can explore more about server side scripting and AJAX.

    thanks so much!

    I dont know what happened but some miracle caused my port 80 to open up!!! Now i dont need to bother with redirecting it (also i tried to forward SSH and it opened up too)!!!!!!

    I am so excited! I currently have XAMPP for linux installed and i can connect to my server locally and even when someone outside the network tried to connect they were able to. The one problem is whenever I or anyone else connects this message pops up:

    ?php if (!empty($_SERVER['HTTPS']) && ('on' == $_SERVER['HTTPS'])) { $uri = 'https://'; } else { $uri = 'http://'; } $uri .= $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']; header('Location: '.$uri.'/xampp/'); exit; ?> Something is wrong with the XAMPP installation :-(
    what in the world is this? i am sooooo close to getting this thing running as a webserver i can taste it! I just need to learn how to get my websites on their (and possibly learn how to do it remotely so i can update my website by developing on my laptop and transfering the files).

    Can anyone help me get this thing running? I know i am soooo close, i can taste it!

    EDIT: I hear XAMPP is not good to use as an actual webserver. Is this true? Thats really disappointing because i have been having a lot of trouble getting the individual packages working.... There needs to be a better tutorial on how to install and configure these damn packages. I am almost considering switching to debian because it seems like it has more support for setting up a web server.

    Please! I really need help with this, i have no clue how to configure this thing!
