View Full Version : Fedora Core 4 / Web Server problems

12th July 2005, 02:11 AM
Ok I am a pretty new Linux user, currently running a Fedora Core 4 and setting up my first webserver.
I am still getting no access from ouside (even tho I registered a hostname at dyndns linked to my ip / port forwarding, etc ...) I had fe minor mistakes in my htpd file and i fixed those .....can anyone tell me the most common commands for webserver ,,,, like how do I restart it after making changes?

I am connected to my homeserver via ssh and working on it from office ... help?

service httpd restart that'll restart the server.

Have a look at the logs under /var/log to see what its generated.

ok, what i figured out is that when i try doing a "service httpd start or restart" i get failed, which should mean something is not right in my httpd file (am i right?)

That is correct. start will start it up restart will stop then start it basically if you have added details to your httpd.conf file it'll change to the new amendments you have put in.

Currently it seems that your httpd.conf is incorrect.
