Newbie Apache help
I am a Linux Newbie who has successfully installed Fedora 3 on my old PC.
I also installed Apache w/ MySQL support during the Fedora installation.
My goal is to use the linux box as a webserver using apache.
I also want to be able to transfer my website files from my windows machine over to the linux box.
I do not know how to set up either on Linux. I have successfully run apache on my windows machine and can go to my dummy website by typing http://localhost/ on my windows machine.
My set up is as follows:
I have set the Linux box to have a static IP.
Both the Linux and Windows boxes can see the web. Now I want the linux box to serve websites and the Windows box to be able to dump files to the Linux box.
Most of the website development will initially be done on the Windows machine.
I need a step by step newbie walk through on how to do this. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
A little bit of progress ....
I made a simple page that says "Hello"
and I can view it in a web browser running on the linux box by typing http://localhost/
Next step .... how to make my windows PC see this page .... :?:
AHA ! ...
I can see the page from the windows PC by typing http://<linux box static IP>
If you want to change the web servers files from yor windows pc you could set up a samba share for the directory which apache reads the web files from. - but you would need to be careful about the permissions etc...
alternativly, you could use putty which is a free ssh client for windows, this would let you log in to the linux pc from your windows pc via a command line. you could then copy files from the windows pc into your httpdocs folder or whatever....
another easy way to do this would be to setup ftp (i like sftp) and then put all the files up via ftp, that way you can develope on another box and just upload (now and in the future)
