I have now read the ENTIRE Mailing list and still have not found a clear solution to my problem and I (THINK) I have seen an area that I may be of some use to this group. A little background....I run a fairly popular Sport Fishing website. I have been involved in a bunch of different coding projects over time, Most of them dealing in PHP. I stumbled across your group because of a current project of bringing my members localized S S T maps. I am NOT a programmer by any means but I have been around the block once or twice too. Why am I telling you all this....because I seem to be (people like me) your target for distribution of FGS.
I downloaded and installed the FGS Base Package the other night on my Linux home server. (If you would like a link to both my site and my home server feel free to drop me an e-mail as I do not like to post them) The install went clean. No errors. I have fgs starting at boot and it is running. The problem I see is that I have FGS running on a different PORT as I have apache already running on port 80. In my case I used port 8000.
I have read and tried to understand this but it is not very clear.
Redirecting main Apache to FGS's Apache
If your Apache has been configured to bind a port other than 80 and you
already have a web server running on port 80, you can add the following
to your main Apache httpd.conf file to redirect to FGS's Apache:
ProxyPass /directory/ http://fgsserver:port/directory/
ProxyPassReverse /directory/ http://fgsserver:port/directory/
You could also use a redirection with iptables.
Could you please post an example of what FGS requires in my main Apache http.conf. If I do this will the entire site not be redirected to the FGS's Apache?
Currently when I go to http://www.mysite.net:8000/gmap-demo/ I get "Page can not be displayed"......if I go to http://www.mysite.net:8000 I get the empty DIR htdocs. From what I have looked at in the program files I would have thought htdocs should contain the Demo files? Maybe I simply missed something and I am barking up the wrong tree. I don't know.
Thank You for Your Time and for what I hope is a great Program.
