    what is the quickest that you have proved a web server

    proving a web server is this

    instalation of operating system
    instalation of webserver software
    bringing up a page
    having another node off the subnet download the page flawlessly

    I think I did a debian base install, apt-get install apache, and restored my /var/www backups in about 15 minutes once.


    This was after I rm -r /etc by accident. Don't ask. It was early in the morning and I wasn't of full mental capacity. :o

    Having a full Debian mirror on our school LAN makes things pretty quick for installs.

    I rebuilt the workstation which was my main box yesterday. Did a RH8 install with everything. The install alone took about 1hr. I got Java, Tomcat and Webmin up and running within 20 mins. I've spend some of today installing applications like JBuilder and such.

    I didn't even have the -f switch, but stock debian install's don't confirm delete's by root like RedHat and other do.


    It is interesting to watch how everything slowly stops working after /etc is removed.

    FreeBSD minimal install, apache from packages, old website on CD. Had the website up in well under 15 minutes.

    Mac OS X for the win. Apache is installed with the base install.

    "Click the Apple Menu, choose System Preferences, and then Sharing. Under the Services tab you'll see a number of options, only one of which is of immediate value. See that Personal Web Sharing service? Select it and click the Start button to fire up the built-in Apache web server.

    By default, Apache has been configured to serve your personal web pages from a directory based on your Mac OS X short username. You can find your short username in the Accounts preference panel. If your short username is "morbus," you can access your personal web site by opening a local web browser and typing http://127.0.0.1/~morbus/. This 127.0.0.1 (aka localhost) is pretty special--every computer has one. Both names represent the computer itself; by accessing 127.0.0.1 in your browser, you visit the Apache activated via the Sharing preference panel.

    But, how do you make your web pages available to folks on the World Wide Web? The answer is found back in Sharing. Click the Personal Web Sharing service and note the IP or hostname at the bottom of the window--that address is how others can access your web server. If you're behind a router, you'll probably see a local address instead. You can find your publicly available IP at checkip.dyndns.org/."

    Why do people insist on bumping threads?
