Networking – Lab 5 – Web & FTP Servers

Posted by

February 24, 2012


Objectives: Get hands-on with HTTP and FTP servers.


Equipment list: Computer with internet connection and Apache.


Notes and Observations: Since I have my own website, I’m pretty comfortable with HTTP and FTP servers. I’ve never used Apache before though. The lab consisted of us making a couple html pages and posting them on the internet using the Apache server.


Questions: One of the only real question I had during this lab was where the main configuration file was located so I could open it and retrieve the information I needed. I eventually figured out that the file was actually on my computer after I downloaded Apache. The wording of the paragraph on the lab made it seem like it was on the web for me to open up. After I figured that out the rest of the lab went by real easily.
