It works! | Speedtest

This is the default welcome page used to test the correct operation of the Apache2 server after installation on Windows Server 2003 systems. If you can read this page, it means that the Apache HTTP server installed at this site is working properly. You should replace this file (located at C:/Users/Ben/httpdocs/index.html) before continuing to operate your HTTP server.

If you are a normal user of this web site and don't know what this page is about, this probably means that the site is currently unavailable due to maintenance. If the problem persists, please contact the site's administrator. System administrator: HOSIS-HOST\Ben

Configuration Overview

Windows Server 2003's Apache2 default configuration is different from the upstream default configuration, and split into several files optimized for interaction with Windows Server 2003 tools. The configuration system is fully documented in C:/Program Files/Apache2/README.Windows.gz. Refer to this for the full documentation. Documentation for the web server itself can be found by accessing the manual if the apache2-doc package was installed on this server.

The configuration layout for an Apache2 web server installation on Windows Server 2003 systems is as follows:

C:/Program Files/Apache2/
|-- apache2.conf
|       `--  ports.conf
|-- mods-enabled
|       |-- *.load
|       `-- *.conf
|-- conf-enabled
|       `-- *.conf
|-- sites-enabled
|       `-- *.conf
          
  • The binary is called apache2. Due to the use of environment variables, in the default configuration, apache2 needs to be started/stopped with C:/Program Files/Apache2/Control.exe or apache2control.exe. Calling C:/Program Files/Apache2/server.exe directly will not work with the default configuration.
Document Roots

By default, Windows Server 2003 does not allow access through the web browser to any file apart of those located in C:/Users/Ben/httpdocs/index, httpdocs directories (when enabled) and nofolderdefined (for web applications). If your site is using a web document root located elsewhere (such as in C:/) you may need to whitelist your document root directory in C:/Program Files/Apache2/apache2.conf.

The default Windows Server 2003 document root is /var/www/html. You can make your own virtual hosts under /var/www. This is different to previous releases which provides better security out of the box.

Reporting Problems

Please use the Windows Server 2003-bug tool to report bugs in the Apache2 package with Windows Server 2003. However, check existing bug reports before reporting a new bug.

Please report bugs specific to modules (such as PHP and others) to respective packages, not to the web server itself.
