Apache, web server installation

The Web is the primary system to publish contents in internet, Tim Berners-Lee thought that must to format easy and unified thmillions of texts, and invented the HTML.

Apache is one of the most popular web servers (maybe the most popular).

I have installed Apache2 to serve this pages, over Debian Etch, and i am gonna show how idid it.

As usually apt and deb packages makes easy the basics installation tasks:

elite:~# apt-get install apache2 apache2-mpm-worker apache2-utils libexpat1
                                                 openssl ssl-cert

0 actualizados, 8 se instalarán, 0 para eliminar y 6 no actualizados.
Necesito descargar 3451kB de archivos.
Se utilizarán 9023kB de espacio de disco adicional después de desempaquetar.

Do not forget open the port 80 to our local IP server in order to everybody see all that we publish.

To remove the installation default redirection, in /etc/apache2/sites-available/default, comment the line:

#RedirectMatch ^/$ /default/

To accept the accents we must set a latin charset. Uncomment in apache2.conf:

AddDefaultCharset ISO-8859-1
