You have to have your own server. Hosting on servers can be as cheap as $5.00 a month. Goto google and type in hosting and you will find plenty of hosts.

You can not use Apache to host sites because for one you have no domain name and number 2 your dialup connection is not going to be sufficient. If you want to use Apache for your HTTPD server you will need to purchase something online such as virtual hosting.

the definition of hotlink is when you upload a picture (or file) to any given server, and then display that picture on another server remotely. thus using their bandwidth instead of the server your displaying it from. ozzu does not allow hotlinking of any kind. and you really have no way to do it anyway, unless for some reason you were to hotlink your avatar.. and that is still not allowed...

im not sure i understand how you would like us to test your apache? is it running on your windows machine? if so we would need an IP address in order to see if it is working.. and displaying your ip address publicly isnt reccomended... besides your dial up if i recall and that wouldnt be very good for a server

ok if i understand correctly for the information you need. For the Network Domain i put this in localhost

For the server name i put this in localhost

http://localhost/

I'm pretty sure that's the IP address. The reason why i asked can you guys test it. Bigwebmaster tested my Internet connection by a trace route. Ever since then, I think you guys can test everything. That site is above. Will that be my server?

local host is accessable ONLY from your your computer and no one elses.. if i were type local host from here i would get my own computer to pop up...

type this http://www.whatismyip.com and that is your ip address.. once again i would not post it publicly, but when you have your ip address you can simply tpe http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (where x's are replaced by ip address) and if your server is working it shoud bring up your page...

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 and replace this page.

that is the message i got when i went to your page... if you followed my directions above then you will see the same hting im sure... keep in mind that a dial up account gets a new ip address every time you re connect so it will change every time... good luck...

I don't understand. I been to that page at least a thousand times. I know what the message says. When i first started the installation i typed localhost for Network Domain and server name. Do i go back and change that? (I'm really slow at learning). I really don't understand. How do i start to upload to the server? This is really pissing me off.

there is nothing to upload man.. it is on your computer, you need to find out where your www root is located on your computer and then simply replace the file located there with your own. (on your hard drive)

you can alternately change your httpd.conf file to relocae where the server see your files... i think youll need to do this one on your own though as it is quite involved, and will require some studying and reading... if you cant find it do a search on your computer for the file httpd.conf that is the file you will need to edit...

ok lets go back to the www root. or what ever that is. Where is the www root? Do i make up my own www to replace it? By the way. I found just a little of information about the httpd.conf. It's for advance users. I'm not no advance user. I rather do the www root.

ok this is what got off of the web.

Now we will edit the configuration files inside the directory /usr/local/etc/httpd/conf

First we will edit the httpd.conf file. This file determines the way the server will be run. Here is an example httpd.conf file.

Edit these directives in the httpd.conf file:

ServerType
This directive sets to either standalone or inetc Choose standalone, memory consumption is less Port
The default is 80 Select 80 unless you have reason to do otherwise If you are not root you will not be able to select a port below 1024 StartServer
Linux code is not currently able to take advantage of this capability Comment out this line with a # (pound) sign MaxServer
Linux us not able to take advantage of this feature currently Comment out this line with a # (pound) sign User/Group
For security purposes do not select root Httpd starts server as root then switches to user selected here User must be in /etc/passwd file User nobody is appropriate choice No need to select a group but if you do make ceratin the group is in the /etc/group file ServerAdmin
Make this the legal email address of the Web server administrator ErrorLog
Make this the location of the error log file Note this file is based off the server root directory (/usr/local/etc/httpd) logs/error_log is typical make sure to chown file to be owned by user selected to run httpd TransferLog
This is the location of the transfer log Note this file is based off the server root directory (/usr/local/etc/httpd) logs/access_log is typical make sure to chown file to be owned by user selected to run httpd AgentLog
This is the location of the agent log Note this file is based off the server root directory (/usr/local/etc/httpd) logs/agent_log is typical make sure to chown file to be owned by user selected to run httpd RefererLog
This is the location of the referer log Note this file is based off the server root directory (/usr/local/etc/httpd) logs/refer_log is typical make sure to chown file to be owned by user selected to run httpd RefererIgnore
List any servers you do not want to keep records of in this line You may list servers one line at a time PidFile
This file is the one whic carries the numerical PID of the httpd process File is typically logs/httpd.pid Normally there is no reason to change it You do NOT have to create this file, the server will create it upon starting the httpd daemon if the directory exists. ServerName
You may list aliases the server will recognize when an httpd request is received. The name selected my be a legal name, one stored in the tables of your DNS.

Next we will edit the access.conf file. This file determines who may access the server and how. Here is an example access.conf file.

There are two ways to create access control of your Web server, one is the access.conf file and the other individual .htaccess files in individual directories. You may also set user and password controls.

Edit these Parameters
<Directory /usr/local/etc/httpd/> Set this to your server root Documents Root
<Directory /usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs> will work here Options
There are lots, this is default and it works Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride
Set to AllowOverride All Determines which options the .htaccess file may control <Limit GET>
order allow,deny
You can set this order. deny from fferreri.ist.csuohio.edu is an example of denying someone access to your server or directory </Directory>
You may list individual directories to control at this point

Next we will edit the srm.conf file. This file configures the server's data structure, aliases, and related items. Here is an example srm.conf file.

Here are the parameters of the srm.conf file which you must accept or change by editing.
DocumentRoot
/usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs is the default I recommend using this default under normal circumstances UserDir
This is the directory which your users will be able to use to publish their own Home Page with a ~user request to the Server. public_html is the default Some use www FancyIndexing
Set to on if you desire fancy indexing in your Web documents AddIcon
This directive tells the server which icon to show for different files or filename extensions Default Icon
based on the server root this file is the icon returned by the server on when there is no explicitly set icon an example is: /icons/unknown.xbm ReadmeName
Sets the name of the README file used HeaderName
sets the name of the file used for indexes IndexIgnore
Allows the Web administrator to set patterns of files which are ignored for indexing purposes AccessFileName
Use this directive to set the name of the file which controls access per directory. The default is .htaccess, but you must include it for it to function properly DefaultType
If the server cannot find a MIME type in your MIME file the server will treat the document as the value included here text/plain is the default value AddType
Permits the administrator to tweak mime.types without editing the file itself. AddEncoding
Allows the administrator to set certain browsers like Netscape and Mosaic to uncompress certain kinds of files on-the-fly Example: AddEncoding x-gzip gz Redirect
Is used when you move information off your server and you wish to leave a reference to the new location Example: Redirect /cali94/index.htmld/ http://www.movedto.edu/cali94/index.htmld. Aliases
Add up to twenty (20) aliases here Uses the pattern Alias fakename realname Example: Alias /icons/ /usr/local/etc/httpd/icons/ Allows you to use directories outside the normal DocumentRoot ScriptAlias
The ScriptAlias allows the admin to create aliases for the Script directories, just like a normal Alias Example: /cgi-bin/ /usr/local/etc/httpd/cgi-bin/ Server includes can be enabled if you uncomment these lines: AddType text/x-server-parsed-html .shtml AddType application/x-httpd-cgi .cgi
Normally one does not have to edit the mime.types file, at least not immediately. Here is an example mime.types file for your perusal.
Review (Double Check) Your Work

SeverType-I cannot find that in the httpd.conf file. I went to edit and then find. I searched for ServerType. Icannot be found. Am i doing something wrong?

Hey Gadget Guru. your online. I have great idea. How about we get the software so you can view my mouse keyboard, mointor and everything else? Then you can help me. I know when someone has a live chat with Gateway computers. I had to ask them a few questions. Then always view your mouse and keyboard. That's just a thought and you can show me how you set it up so the next time. I can do it on my own.

Did i at least did the installation right? For Network Domain. I put localhost. For server name. I put localhost. For my e-mail address. I put my e-mail. Is that correct so far for the Network Domain and the server name? If that is not correct. What should i put? What would be my next step? I read them instructions and they look like they are for all advance users. Is there any step by step instructions? I mean i was searching for ever and most likely. I'm not done searching until i find what i need. Bigwebmaster, Can you view everything on my computer and help me? So if i see what you are doing. The next time i can do it on my own.

Look harder. It should be there. Usually its towards the top of the httpd.conf file. The default setting for ServerType is usually fine. You do not need to change that anyway.

Download PHP for Windows at http://www.php.net/downloads.php. Extract the files into a directory called "\php4win." Make a directory to store PHP development files, "\phpdev". This is where your PHP files will reside. Rename the file ":\php4win\php.ini-dist" to "php.ini". Open this php.ini file and change the doc_root (\php4win) and extension_dir (\phpdev) lines so that they are set to the appropriate directories. Move the two files php.ini and php4ts.dll to the ":\windows" directory. If you haven't already, make sure you delete the php.ini

Edit the httpd.conf file in the "/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/Conf" directory. Then search for the "DocumentRoot" and "" lines and change them so they are set to ":\php4win". Find the line "AddType application/x-tar .tgz" and add the following after it:

ScriptAlias /php4/ "d:/phpdev/"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php3
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php4
Action application/x-httpd-php "/php4/php.exe"

You can now test PHP on Apache by putting web pages in ":/phpdev" and accessing from a browser at "http://localhost".



Can you please help me? I installed PHP. I don't understand what they are doing. Can you give me a little more detail? Thanks.

Well because i got instructions here and they want me to install Apache, PHP and MySQL. I'm only doing what the instructions said. right now as far as i know. I have PHP on my computer. I just checked in the control panel under Add/Remove programs and PHP was installed. Good job for me. I need to know what is the next step. hold on for a minute. I'm going to need help with the next part. I think i did the first part right. I will assume i did. If i didn't. oh well shoot me. It might show up later that i screwed up. let's move on.

Apache is already installed on my computer. I need it to work so i can upload and hotlink. When i upload. What website does it go to for someone to download off of my server?

look for where it says Document root

that is where your files will be located that will display on your server when someone goes to your apache ip address. you can change that to anywhere you want your files to be seen... for example you could change it to c:\ and that would make your c drive your document root...

just try it and then go to your ip address, and youll see what im talking about...

well you dont have to edit you httpd.conf file you could simply upload pictures to D:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/htdocs directory and then hotlink it like http://ip.ip.ip.ip/image.jpg and it should work

You are not going to be able to hotlink from running Apache on your home computer. You are on dialup and your IP always changes and it just will not work.

What would happen if i try to do it? Would i get cut off in the middle of the hotlink? I'm thinking about trying to hotlink. I just might upload with a dial up too. I don't care how slow my modem. I download these big Operating Systems with a dial up.

What would happen is that you when you try to post your image on Ozzu, by linking right to your computer, many people who view the forum would then be accessing your computer to load that descent sized graphic. Now if enough people do it at once it will likely take all your connection you got, and it will make the post load really slow and sluggish which I do not want on Ozzu.

Secondly since your IP changes all the time, the hotlinked picture probably would only link right for a few hours and then it would simply load as a red X. If you want to show you desktop picture you will need to find a dedicated server which has a good connection, has the same IP all the time, and is always online.

Your computer is the exact opposite and if you even try to hotlink to your computer I will delete your post. Sorry.

thats not your IP..that name is associated with your nic (127.0.0.1) internally...for anyone to reach you from the outside you need the IP (123.123.123.123) for anyone to access your server...apparently you can use route -n to get it (found that on google btw...used to unix :)) then let us know what it is and someone MAY be able to connect to it provided you have it set up right

You need to focus on beginner topics anyway. You are jumping into advanced stuff, and you still do not have the beginner topics down straight. So of course you are lost, you are way ahead of your self. Slow down and buy a good book to give you a nice foundation.

Do you have any beginner sites? I was plan on going to a bookstore for a certain book. base on Redhat commands. I was really not plan on getting Apache or unless you have a beginner site. I know i'm way ahead of myself. I do that all the time. Maybe if you have a beginner site then i will just use that until the next time i go to a bookstore. I was plan on going Tuesday base on Redhat commands.
