Subject Re: [users@httpd] Need an example of how to use Apache Server 2.2.
Date Wed, 25 Dec 2013 01:53:23 GMT
If you put HTML files in the htdocs folder, Apache should serve them as
HTML and then it depends on your browser understanding the HTML properly.
In most browsers, there is a development or debug panel that let's you see
the raw request and response. If you are not sure how to get that or what
the proper response values are, post specific examples (and what browser
you are using).
If you want to put anything more complicated than static content, you need
to use the appropriate Apache module (for example mod_php will run PHP
code) or CGI configuration.

You should also check that your code if properly formatted - specifically
that you have < and > and not &lt; and &gt;
