Subject [users@httpd] Can this be Done?
Date Tue, 03 May 2005 15:10:35 GMT
First I am new to Apache but not to Linux. I have Apache2 up and running 
fresh from an install and thatÅ› it.

My question(s)  before I start this endevour is the following possible.

1) Create a home webserver.
2) Host my own website on the home webserver.
3) Have access to my website from the internet via an DSL/ISP connection.

I want to do this without registering a domain.

I am using a router and the computer I want to setup is configured as 
the DMZ.
My router is the DHCP server ( I have five computers in my home) , and 
my system has an IP address outside the DHCP range so it has a static IP 

 Do I need to setup the webhost server as a secondary DNS server to the 
ISP DNS server?

I have spent the entire day tryng to figure out how to associate the 
server "" with  the webserver "" and IP 
address and how to point to the actual "index.html" for the webpage in 

 From what I read all Apache2 configuration takes place in "httpd.conf". 
My configuration does not work properly and I have read so some 
information I am confused on exactly where I went wrong.

 At this point I am getting the following when I try to access 


You don't have permission to access /apache2-default/index.html on this 

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use 
an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Apache/2.0.54 (Debian GNU/Linux) PHP/4.3.10-13 Server at localhost Port 80

I could use a little basic guidance so far I just get pointed to the 
same documentation I already have been reading but cannot seem to 
extrapolate the correct information. So a cookbook step by step would 
help, but I now it is a pain and will take someones valued time. I just 
seem to have too much information to read through and need to sort it out.

thanks for any help.
