Installing httpd for use as a jgofs server:

To reconfigure:

In general, you can follow the NCSA guide for installing httpd. But there are several changes you need to make In the httpd.conf file, you must add the line
 ScriptAlias /jg/ /users/jgofs/htmlbin/
in the appropriate spot. The /users/jgofs/ is replaced by the appropriate path to the location where you've installed the JGOFS server software (i.e., the directory where you unpacked the source). Then you need to kill the daemon and restart it. We expect the daemon to be using the default port (80).

You may have permissions problems; in that case, try changing the httpd.conf:

< User nobody
< Group #-1
> User jgofs
> Group #??  [find the group number from 
              /etc/passwd and substitute for ??]

If your site is acting as an option server for the rest of the world, then you also need to create an alias for the /tmp directory: In srm.conf, add at the appropriate spot

 Alias /tmp/ /tmp/

To restart server:

cd wherever the server is
ps -ax [on Suns - other options on other machines] | grep httpd 
kill server which is currently running
httpd -f conf/httpd.conf

To test:

From Mosaic or Netscape or some other browser, open the URL
That should give you the first part of the test object.
