Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to installing AOL server under SUSE LInux

Posted by Pavel Boghita on
Thank you all for your answers. I think I need to mention that I am just starting with Linux, OpenAcs, and all this technology. So I have a lot to learn.

I am now in the process of setting up the nsd.tcl file so I can get the index.html from the /home/aolserver/server/server1 directory to run, and that will tell me that the aolserver is running ok ,right ?
I want to set nsd.tcl file up so the browser will take my machine as the webserver. (I haven't managed to do this in Windows with apache).

When I open Netscape I get apache runnig as default at do I set nsd.tcl file so that at http://localhost I get the aolserver page, or what do i need to type in my browser to test the installation (in the instruction there was a mention of "yourdomain:8000", but I am unsure of how to translate this.

Also for example in "set homedir    [file dirname [ns_info config]" what does the ns_info config reffer to? or I can just change everything in the square brakets to whatever I wish (i.e. /home/aolserver). Where there is a $ sign in front of something, like in ${homedir} does this stand for something like put here whatever was set up as homedir?

Sorry if the above may sound daft or plain stupid, but this is the level I am at for the moment. I appreciate any answer.
