I may have that wrong it might be start x

failing that...
do you have an X wnidows system? or did you install a command only system?

try X -version to see the version installed.

well i scrapped that and installed ubuntu regular and am now installing apache... and now cant figure out now to install it, i extracted the folder with all of the files, including a file called INSTALL and when i clicked on it, it was like a text file, and said like type in all of this stuff like
Code:
Installing the Apache 1.3 HTTP server with APACI

$ ./configure --prefix=PREFIX
$ make
$ make install
$ PREFIX/bin/apachectl start

     NOTE: PREFIX is not the string "PREFIX". Instead use the Unix
              file system path under which apache should be installed.
i am so confused where do i type this? what is APACI?

Default Re: another appache newb question

do you know if you have an X window system installed?

PS... this is not an apache question this is a general linux question...



lastly, is this server just for serving apache? if so, why do you need an X window system.

Well if you have your server connected to the internet then just type in the terminal/command line:

apt-get install apache2
