Networking Lab 6

April 14, 2013

Objectives: To use Apache to set up web servers and connect with other computers in the classroom and to alter the document root so the homepage for the server can be different from the default.

Equipment list: Computer, apache software

Notes and Observations: Downloaded Apache and installed. Used localhost to see the homepage after setting up the web server, was able to connect to another classmate’s server and see their homepage. Found this lab easier than expected, but the instructions for this one made more sense to me than other labs have. I was able to get everything to work as described.

Diagrams, flowcharts, and figures:

add user config files cmd html language

 References: Wikipedia, Apache website FAQ

Questions: How many languages does Apache support? I looked in the website’s FAQ and documentation section but didn’t find the answer. Turns out the languages were listed in the documentroot file.

Conclusions: I learned a lot more about configuring different settings on the computer. I was really happy that I was successful in following along with this lab and getting all of the objectives completed. I don’t think I will be using this at home, but it was good to learn about something completely new.
