Subject [Httpd Wiki] Update of "GettingStarted" by preaction
Date Sun, 27 Mar 2011 02:03:48 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Httpd Wiki" for change notification.

The "GettingStarted" page has been changed by preaction.


New page:
If you are just getting started with your first Apache httpd server, you should read these
articles to familiarize yourself before asking questions. This will make it easier for you
to understand the answers you get when you finally ask your question.

1) Read [[DistrosDefaultLayout]] to find where your distro puts its various files by default.
The people who help you will usually refer to files as they come direct from Apache, not what
your distro may have done to fit httpd into its package manager.

2) Find the error log. You will be asked for this a lot. It is the most useful tool when trying
to figure out what is wrong with your server.

3) Scan the [[FAQ]] to see if your question is answered.

4) If you are new to IRC, read [[|Getting Answers]]
for some insight into IRC etiquette.

5) Read below for some common early questions and links to relevant articles:

* [[|Apache Virtual Host documentation]]
* [[|Apache SSL/TLS Encryption documentation]]
