JumpStart II: Setting Up Apache with system-config-httpd

You can use the system-config-httpd (FEDORA) and redhat-config-httpd (RHEL) utilities to display the HTTP window, which can help you set up Apache. The HTTP window has four tabs: Main, Virtual Hosts, Server, and Performance Tuning. The Virtual Hosts tab has buttons that open other, extensive windows. Each of the fields in these tabs/windows corresponds to a directive in the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file. This section discusses some of the basic directives you can change with [system|redhat]-config-httpd. For more information, click Help at the bottom of the HTTP window.

The Main tab (Figure 26-1) allows you to establish an FQDN (page 972) as the name of the server (ServerName, page 769), an email address for the server administrator (ServerAdmin, page 769), and the ports and addresses that Apache listens for requests on (Listen, page 768). Highlight an entry in the Available Addresses subwindow, and click Edit to edit that entry or Add to add a new entry. Both actions bring up a window that allows you to specify a port and select whether you want to listen to all IP addresses on that port or listen to a specific address.
