  • Publishing Web pages

    To publish web pages using Roxen WebServer there are a few things the web page creator ought to know. This chapter will explain the basics.

    Roxen WebServer

    To publish an HTML page through Roxen WebServer, the web page creator only needs to know in what directory the files should be placed and on what URL the pages will be found. This is configured by the administrator of the server.

    The virtual server used must have a file system module enabled. The file system module can mount a directory from a normal file system as a virtual file system. When referring to other files, the path to the file must be in the virtual file system. Both absolute and relative paths can be used.

    To display the contents of a directory, a directory parsing module is needed. If a file called index.html is found in a directory that is mounted by a file system module, it will be shown when pointing a browser to the URL of that directory. By default the server will look for the following files: index.html, Main.html, welcome.html, index.cgi, index.lpc, index.pike, in that order. The names and the order can be configured by the administrator.
