Exclamation Apache 2.0 welcome.conf

This is my first time with working with this stuff so I'm a little lost and need come clearing up on this.

I've been having problems getting my Virtual Dedicated Server working properly. Apache is working, I got my zones files and DNS up correctly, I just keep getting the Test Page.

I located the welcome.conf file but I am a little confussed on what exactly to do. I know I have to comment out all the lines, but can anyone give me an example of what that would look like?? I don't know if I have to place in the # marks before the line of text or over all replace it like that?

Help much appreciated!!

- Cole

This is what my welcome.conf file looks like right now

#
# This configuration file enables the default "Welcome"
# page if there is no default index page present for
# the root URL. To disable the Welcome page, comment
# out all the lines below.
#
<LocationMatch "^/+$">
Options -Indexes
ErrorDocument 403 /error/noindex.html
</LocationMatch>

Ignore the welcome file stuff, leave that alone.

You should put your website in /var/www/html directory.

Did you modify /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf?

What do you have under:
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"
<Directory "/var/www/html">

Thank you for the comment.

I have nothing in my /var/www/html folder. I didn't upload there because I am using GoDaddy.com for my server and I was told to upload my files to public_html. I did try uploading just my index.html file there and nothing seemed to have happened.

Basically what I need to know is what the code I supplied above should look like if I "commented" out the code? I don't want to use this file again in the future and I was told that's what I need to do to stop using this.

I'm not exactly sure what was the problem. GoDaddy went in and fixed it for me while I was away fro a little bit. I guess it it had something to do with the httpd.conf file and there being a problem with uploading files to "DirectoryIndex" variable with in that file.

reading welcome.conf kind of explains it - rename it or move it out of the way.

Question Re: Apache 2.0 welcome.conf

i am having a similar problem regarding Apache 2 Test Page. It kept on showing instead the default localhost page of WAMP Server. I am using Windows Server 2003 R2 by the way.

But when I try it in Windows 7, it is fine. The default page of localhost of WAMP Server is showing.

How's that? Need help. Thank you!

Re: Apache 2.0 welcome.conf

All you need to do is hash # out all the lines in welcome.conf and restart httpd or restart comp

When looking at the welcome page if you read it it will tell you!

/etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf

Yeah. But in the Wamp Server directory, there are no var neither etc folders.

Take a look at this. This is the printscreen from Windows Server 2003 R2.



Thank you!

Re: Apache 2.0 welcome.conf

sorry this is a FEDORA forum, not a WINDOWS forum.

try the site you got the wamp package from, or better still use fedora.
