    Running Web Server on RH Enterprise Linux WS V4.0


    Note the 'WS' in the title. Yep, I believe it means workstation.

    Has anyone ever set up a web server on this version of Linux. I need to test my Website forms against a Oracle database, (successfully installed DB by the way).

    I amuse I have to install Apache or someother web server?

    Thanks

    I am not sure about your specific OS but I would be willing to bet the web server is already there. Try this as root in a command line

    su -
    <password>
    /etc/init.d/httpd start

    See what happens
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    Nope. I already checked. I also talked to Red Head and was told that you can run a web server on WS but they did not support it. So what's new?

    Any advise on loading and configuring Apache?

    I have found it easier to work with the one that is installed then download a new one.

    Nope. This version of Linux is a desktop version. Very little is built in.

    I've already download the Apache software and now need to install.

    Any advise?

    Read the README and the INSTALL file then ask questions if you need to. I am not familiar with your specific distro, but I do have good Linux knowledge.
    Good Luck

    Yippee! Successfully installed Apache on my Linux system. It's up and running and I can see my Website.
