    Windows 2000 IIS

    I have a problem with the Personal Web Server feature in Windows 2000. I just got everything working with my ports, router, etc. Now when I boot up, both the SMTP and Personal Web Server services never finish starting up. I have just uninstalled and reinstalled it, and it's working (for now). I need to know if there is a way I can fix this, and if anybody has ever had the same problem. Also, if somebody can recommend a good program to run a web server (preferably free), that would also be nice. I don't want to be stuck never being able to shut down again.

    If anybody's curious, the URL is http://gun-nuts.arecool.net I'm not a professional web designer, so don't expect much.

    If there is anything on their web site, I can't find it.

    What I have set up on my Win 2k computer is Apache (the most widely used web server). You can download it here for free: http://httpd.apache.org/dist/httpd/a...n32-no_src.msi

    Make sure you have Microsoft's software disabled then just edit Apache's configuration file and find the stuff you want changed.

    Hot damn! It works! Or at least I think it does... I don't know how I managed to filter through that config file, but it appears I pulled it off.

    Please, somebody else try to get to it and tell me if it works. I can get to it from here, but that may just be because I have all appropriate permissions on my router.

    I'll give the URL again. http://gun-nuts.arecool.net

    I just clicked on it and it worked for me.

    Question

    Now that I have all that worked out, does anybody know where I can get Apache for Red Hat 7? I'd like to make my Linux machine my web server as soon as I can. My Windows 2000 machine is only my web server until I get my Linux machine ready.

    You probably already have a copy of apache, if you type "urpmi -v apache" it should install, if that doesn't work (and i'm not 100% sure it will, i haven't used red hat in a while) navigate to the RPMS directory of your red hat cd and look for the apache rpm - it should be apache-2.1.1.i586.rpm or something like that, when you've found it "rpm -ivh filename" should install the binary and create the requisite directorys.
    Its always better to get the most up to date version - but with red hat 7 you should be ok.
    Finally if you want to forgoe the conveniance of rpm's and compile the source yourself - here's a link to help http://www.e-gineer.com/instructions...on-linux.phtml

    I tried all this, and none of it seems to work. The command doesn't work, and I can't find Apache on either of the CDs. It says that my copy of Red Hat is supposed to come with it, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Does anybody know? Please forgive my stupidity. Red Hat is a new operating system to me (just got it today).

    Ummm, i'm pretty sure it should work, when your in the RPMS directory - type "rpm -ivh apach" and press the tab key, if your using bash the tab key should complete the filename or give you the choice of all files that begin with apach.
    Failing that, have you X configured on the machine? If you have than there should be some package manager you can use - rpmdrake or something.
