[REBOL] Re: Idiot question on Cheyenne

From: greg::schofield::iinet::net::au at: 2-Jan-2009 7:31

Dockimbel, I see my problem straight off, and many thanks -- everything now working 100% in under 30 seconds. I have never dealt with web servers before and have zero knowledge. If I can manage (with your kind help) anyone can. Cheyenne works well, and working in the Rebol environment is a delight. All the best in the new year, Greg --- Message Received --- From: DocKimbel <> To: Reply-To: Date: Thu, 01 Jan 2009 20:20:52 +0100 Subject: [REBOL] Re: Idiot question on Cheyenne Hi Greg, You seem confused by what a virtual domain is. A virtual domain is defined in cheyenne's config file as (for example) : [ root-dir %/c/www/ ] That means that Cheyenne will serve content from local folder %/c/www/== 20 when asked for virtual domain Also, your OS needs to know the mapping between domain names and their== 20 IP addresses. This is done by querying a DNS server (mainly for public== 20 names) or looking in local hosts file for name/IP mapping. So, in order for to respond, the domain must be defined somewhere, in a DNS database or locally== 20 in the hosts file. On UNIX, hosts file is located at /etc/hosts, on Windows, it's at %SYSTEM32%/drivers/etc/hosts. More info about hosts file: Hope that helps, -- DocKimbel a =E9crit :
