Just wondering...

#21
^ okay

i open a terminal, and i cd in the /var, and then i try to cd into the /www but it says it does not exist

Code:
bash: cd: /www: no such file or directory/[quote]
 
however, when i enter, dir in /var it shows me all the folders/dirs and www is there 
 
i would think i could just cd into right?

Yeah, it's /var/www/

You can create an index.html there.

Okay

open terminal:
enter into /var/www
then i put in the chmod
i read on wiki, to change the permission to allow everyone is: chmod +rw and then the file correct?

so i put this:
Code:
donald@donald-ubuntu:/var/www$ chmod +rw apache2-default

~then i go this:~

chmod: changing permissions of `apache2-default': Operation not permitted

~I changed it to sudo:~

donald@donald-ubuntu:/var/www$ sudo chmod +rw apache2-default

~it asks for the password, i enter it and it goes back to the~

donald@donald-ubuntu:/var/www$
now i try to edit the contents of the folder and still no go, i check properties it sill belongs to the host... im sorry im not used to Command line and im not used to ubuntu either yet.... :frowning:

---

okay now i have another location, telling me, chmod 666 file will allow everyone to read and write the file. i did that:

Code:
donald@donald-ubuntu:/var/www$ chmod 666 apache2-default

chmod: changing permissions of `apache2-default': Operation not permitted

\donald@donald-ubuntu:/var/www$ sudo chmod 666 apache2-default
it didnt ask for my password this time i assume it remembers it, because i have not opened a new terminal.

now when i try to cd into the apache2-default folder, in the terminal it says:

Code:
donald@donald-ubuntu:/$ cd /var/www/apache2-default

bash: cd: /var/www/apache2-default: Permission denied
idk whats going on lol but i am learning new things, and thats what matters. so once i get this working, and someone else wants to have their own web server, on there linux (ubuntu) i would be able to help YAY me :smile:

^ that maybe true lol :smile:

okay heres what i got, i can check the information of whats in a dir by using the "ls -l" command:

Code:
donald@donald-ubuntu:/var/www$ ls -l
total 8
drw-rw-rw- 2 root root 4096 2007-09-16 15:55 apache2-default
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2007-09-16 15:55 nginx-default
the apache2-default dir is blue text with green background

while the nginx-default is just blue text :frowning:

OK, so can't you edit the files in /var/www/ now?

If not, just do it like this:
Code:
gksudo gedit /var/www/index.html
That'll open a full-permissions text editor for index.html.
 
#29
okaydokay, nope i still dont have permission...

but that editor opened and i just modified some html atm:

Ah, try this:

Code:
sudo chown -R YOURUSERNAME /var/wwwroot/
Your firewall is blocking access to port 80, so I can't access your Apache page.
 
#31
i cant either :frowning:

Code:
chown: cannot access `/var/wwwroot/': No such file or directory

Doesn't seem to be... (at this moment)
Does that same URI work for you?
 
#37
yes it does :frowning:

so that means... well of course i should be able to see my own files correct?

but some where in between my file getting to your machine, somethign is stopping it :frowning: do i have webservers down pretty well on principle?

---

another thing... the new ubuntu is within a months time, and i was wondering, will it be like a upgrade, that i can download thourgh my synpatic, or will i have to creat a new desktop CD and install over my current ubuntu. this isnt a problem seeing as i have two hard drives, data can just be moved for temp. i do think however i would want to save my webserver files on a disk or somethign somewhere.

(im at the library so no debugging to be done lol )
