Subject Re: [users@httpd] About installing Apache web server
Date Tue, 14 Apr 2015 15:07:36 GMT
Apache HTTPD runs perfectly fine without X (and that is probably how most
users have it).
If lynx or any other text browser shows output, then Apache is working. The
browser you use has nothing to do with how Apache works.
The only other option is to test from another computer.
