    I guess I really don't understand what it is exactly that your asking for. We can't just give you an httpd.conf file and expect it to work on your computer. Chances are is it won't. Every setup is different. You need to configure ports,server name, document directory, users, groups, virtual servers and root web. I don't think I missed anything. But in order to get it to work, you need to figure out your configuration for those things, and add it to the file. That's the bare minimum to get it to work. There is still security that should be considered as well.

    I am new at this as well. So feel free to correct me if I am way off base here. I am just going off of what I had to go through to get my httpd.conf configured to work with my machine.

    First of all, what distro are you using? What HTML editor are you using? Will you need PHP, MySQL, SSL etc.? We need to determine what modules you will need? From here we can get some sort of idea as to what it is you seek to accomplish.

    As for setting up a simple "static" Web site using Apache, it takes no more than five minutes - given a working and networked Linux box.

    if you open a web browser on your linux box and go to http://localhost do you see a web page?

    If you are using a router between your server and the internet make sure you forward port 80 to point to the IP address of your web server.

    Check with your internet service provider to make sure they are not blocking port 80. Mine was and was causing headaches.

    As far as the rest of the issues you are seeing, you might want to try doing an update, that might fix those errors. just type yum update from a terminal window. but make sure you have root access when you do it.

    What should i do???

    Yes, the webpage were showed up when i wrote http://localhost/ on the Address browser. But just one question...i bought a Linux book, with local writer. He wrote in his book about Web Server, but his not mentioned about other configuration to build a WebServer. My question is :

    1. Is Proxy Server, File Server and Diskless Server needed to build a WebServer?
    2. My Pc its Stand Alone Pc, and i didnt have other computer. So can i build a Web Server on my Pc?
    3. The writer(as i told u up there), he wrote "http://www.example.com" on his browser address, and it worked (for him),before that he asked the reader to configurate the httpd.conf first. Specially in Virtual Host part..but when i was doing his configuration, its totally failed. "Cannot Find Server www.example.com" but if i wrote "http://localhost/page.html" it worked, the webpage were showed up. So my question is "how can i do that?" (write http://www.example.com) on the address??

    Honestly the writer didnt gave much information about the Server Configuration, such as how many Pc that we need etc.

    Thanks guys....I hope you got the point..
