Welcome to Your New Home in Cyberspace!
This is a placeholder page installed by the Debian
release of the Apache Web server package,
because no home page was installed on this host. You may want to replace
this as soon as possible with your own web pages, of course....
This computer has installed the Debian GNU/Linux operating system but has
nothing to do with the Debian GNU/Linux project. If you want to
report something about this host's behavour or domain, please contact the
ISPs involved directly, not the Debian Project.
See the Network Abuse Clearinghouse
for how to do this.
Unless you changed its configuration, your new server is configured as follows:
All standard Apache modules are available with this release and can be
chosen with the apacheconfig script. Installing a new module on
your system is just a matter of compiling it (with the apache-dev package)
and adding a line to your httpd.conf configuration file.
Configuration files can be found in /etc/apache.
The DocumentRoot, which is the directory under which all your
HTML files should exist, is set to /var/www.
CGI scripts are looked for in /usr/lib/cgi-bin, which is where
Debian packages will place their scripts.
Log files are placed in /var/log/apache, and will be rotated
daily. The frequency of rotation can be easily changed by editing
The default directory index is index.html, meaning that requests
for a directory /foo/bar/ will give the contents of the file /var/www/foo/bar/index.html
if it exists (assuming that /var/www is your DocumentRoot).
User directories are enabled, and user documents will be looked for in
the public_html directory of the users' homes. These dirs
should be under /home, and users will not be able to symlink to files
they don't own.
More documentation on Apache can be found on:
You can also consult the list of World
Wide Web Frequently Asked Questions for information.
If you find a bug in this Apache package, or in Apache itself,
please file a bug report on it. Instructions on doing this, and the
list of known bugs of this
package, can be found in the Debian Bug Tracking System.
Thanks for using this package, and congratulations for your choice of
a Debian system!
