  1. I'm just getting my feet wet in HTML, etc. Most of the HTML pages I want to serve from Uniform Server are located under C:\UniServer3_2a\diskw, i.e., the W:\ drive, along with their supporting images and scripts. But one of the pages I want to provide is an image-map that points to a LARGE collection of U.S. Sectional Maps in .jpg format, as provided by zovirl here: http://zovirl.com/2005/maps/sectionals/Sec...005_06_05/about The image-map .htm file and all the .jpg files are over on the C: drive, so I figured my link should look like: <a href="file://C:/SectionalCharts/index.html">Zovirl US Sectionals</a>... (I also tried with 3 /// slashes after the file:, but no difference). But that doesn't work :angry: (It DOES work when called directly on the server PC, but not from my remote laptop). I realize that this might be a security issue, and so the remote browser may refuse to open a file on the server's host machine. Is there any way of opening files that aren't on the W: drive? Or do I have to move the files onto the W: drive? - Jeff
  2. An excellent tutorial, Olajide! Thanks. - Jeff
  3. I'd like to use my new web server as a portal to linked URL's, etc., but also as a place to store notes to myself, todo lists, etc. Does anybody know of a good script (Perl/CGI, javascript,...) for sticky notes on a web page? - Jeff
  4. My second area of confusion (for today): controlling access to Uniform Server admin. I read lekhoi's message from back in May, but it was over my head. I temporarily modified all the .htaccess files I could find in diskw, so that I could test php, cgi, etc. Now I would like to repair that damage, so I and only I can administer my Uniform Server. How do I create a .htpasswd file, where do I put it, and do I then have to reference that .htpasswd file from each .htaccess file? - Jeff
  5. This is the first of several points on which I am confused. Oladije, thanks for all your help, and if I can get answers for today's confusions from another thread here, the Wiki, the docs, a FAQ list, or a tutorial elsewhere on the Web, please just point me to it! So, confusion #1 for today - directory structure: diskw (or W:\, as far as Apache is concerned) contains the favicon.ico, and these folders: - \www ---Here are some HTML files, including the default index.htm - titled "Apache Test" (which says, "Here has to be your server.") ---I have added my own *.htm files here, along with some of their image files - .gif, .jpeg --- and there is an .htaccess file - but I'll ask about that in another post... --- and there is a test.php file - called from a link on the Apache Test page - \cgi-bin contains: --- another .htaccess file and --- *.cgi files - so far, only the two default ones linked from the Apache Test page - \usr contains: ----\bin, where perl executables reside ----\lib, containing a lot of .pm files, and other stuff I'd better not ask about... ----\local, containing Apache stuff, mysql stuff, and Php stuff. Sounds important. - \home, with these folders: ----\admin ----\CGI - lots more .cgi files, and an .htaccess file ----\program, with the uniserver.exe file ----\WWW, which contains the Uniform Server "Main Page" as index.htmL, ----- as well as some other important stuff like phpMyAdmin, and a plugins folder holding phpfm.0.2.3 and PHP-pear -\plugins, holding the two FTP applications I downloaded from the Uniform Server site (Are these files in the right place? Should they be in w:\home\www\plugins?) -\tmp, holding two mysterious files - sess_6o10kb07ipvuf0i2r6njalcb34 and sess_s09ui6qnstv93bvrbn79m19fk3 - I won't even think about asking what THEY'RE for... My confusion is - why does the Apache Test page suggest that I DELETE w:\cgi-bin AND w:\www ? If I do that, where do I put the pages I want to serve? Where do I put cgi scripts, which would normally go in the \cgi-bin folder? As I said, if this is explained somewhere else, just point me to it! EDIT: I just found the serverstructure.txt file in the doc folder :angry: It answers a lot of my confusion, but I'm still not sure if I can delete w:\cgi-bin AND w:\www! - Jeff
  6. I'm sure you are right, elyk. And you helped me understand what is happening! - Every time I access the remote Uniform Server from my laptop, it requests the favicon from Apache - and if it's not there, Apache logs that as an error! Thanks! - Jeff
  7. I don't use Firefox. :angry: The favicon.ico was not there when I installed Uniform Server, but I put one in, a smiley face, and now Avant Browser displays it when I open the server from my laptop. Is there an "official" favicon.ico for the Uniform Server or Apache? - Jeff
  8. No big deal, but why does the Apache log fill up with lines like this? [Wed Nov 02 06:36:31 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico I will copy an icon file into W:/www just to keep the old Indian happy :angry: - Jeff
  9. I have "successfully" installed Uniform Server on my desktop PC, and I can access the server from another node of my home LAN. But to change anything on my server, I have to get out of my chair and leave my Laptop, to edit files, permissions, etc., on the server PC :angry: Is it possible to administer the server via Telnet? What is the address? (In my case, the server is on internal address:, while my Laptop is on, within my NAT segment). - Jeff
  10. I have the same situation: Uniform Server is started on one machine on my home network - internal ip address is I see the home page (index.htm) at http://localhost/a/ when on my server PC. BUT... If I attempt to open the same page from my laptop PC on, by entering the address I receive a 403 (forbidden) message. What have I not done? How do I permit access to the server from a remote node? For the moment, just opening an HTML page from a remote network node would be great! Thanks in advance! - Jeff
