When I started up and tried to reach the maps of Canada again the browser said it could not connect.  I assumed that httpd was not starting but attempts to start it have been futile.

Hi Greg,


$ cd where_you_installed_FGS
$ . setenv.sh
$ fgs start

If you want to start your FGS at boot time, you could add this line at
the end of your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file:

(replace _fgs_user_ by the login name that runs fgs)

su _fgs_user_ -c "( cd _where_is_FGS_ ; . /setenv.sh ; fgs start )"
