Subject RE: [users@httpd] Which directory
Date Mon, 19 Dec 2005 19:51:52 GMT
Most webservers have a document root.  This is described in detail and can be configured in
the httpd.conf file.  However - out of the box, the document root for apache httpd is:	apache_installation_dir/htdocs

Where apache_installation_dir is where you installed apache. 

In there you will find the page that renders the " If you can see this, it means that the
installation of the Apache web server software on this system was successful" message.

Drop an html file in there and it will render.

The documentation can walk you through change the location of the document root, changing
permissions, etc.

Subject: [users@httpd] Which directory

I'm trying very hard to use the documentation and not ask for help on obvious things, but
I find some simple things very ambiguous.  What directory is the message below referring
to?
 
If you can see this, it means that the installation of the
Apache web server
 software on this system was successful. You may now add content to this directory
