euclid development server
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.
