How To Setup The Apache Server To Allow Http Downloading
Sep 22, 2009
I installed apache, mysql, php on my windows vista laptop, and want to test http downloading. This means when selecting a file (for example, contact.php) from a page, and then click download, it will be downloaded to my desktop.
Do we need to install any other softwares to do that?
I am 3 days new to figuring out how to get Perl scripts to run on my Windows XP box. I downloaded and installed the Apache installation file "httpd-2.0.65-win32-x86-openssl-0.9.8y.msi" and the "strawberry-perl-220.127.116.11-32bit.msi" from the perl.org site in hopes that I could get a feedback form to work for a web site that I am working on.
Out of the many pages that I have viewed online of how to configure the Apache Server, nothing has given any favorable results with their explanations.
My last attempt was [URL] ..... where I could not get the example to work. I did the changes to the Apache file "Edit the Apache httpd.conf Configuration File" fairly easily but I must be having problems with the test.pl because I can't get it to work.
I used a different version of Perl (Strawbery from perl.org because it installed without giving me an error pop up after installation) and after copy pasting the script, in an attempt to get it working, I ended up changing it in hopes that I could get it working, shown below.
where I assumed that "#!" meant the "C:" drive and substituted the first "/perl" with the folder the Strawbery Perl had installed itself to and left the second "/perl" in the first line thinking that it was referring to the executable in the "C:strawberryperlbin" folder.
This is the error I get when trying to get the script to run when typing "localhost/test.pl" in the address bar.
"Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. ........"
Know how I can change the title of this post to read "Configuring Apache HTTP Server 2.0 to run Perl in Windows"?
I have an Xitami server and am migrating to apache httpd. I have the regular server working fine. I tried configuring ssl, but no requests are coming through. I know 443 is open on the router because it works fine under Xitami. I checked the logs and it si starting fine. I am attaching my httpd.conf and the startup log. If I try to access the website using https, it just times out and nothing goes in the log file. I replaced my domain with domain.com. I have tried many different examples, but cannot get it to work and am not sure what to do.
I'm trying to set up password protection on an Apache HTTP server, and it's not working.
First, the environment: Apache 2.4.4 installed with XAMPP Control Panel 3.2.1 under Windows 7 Professional.
http.config says "AllowOverride All."
The .htaccess file in the protected directory says:
Code: htpasswd -c .htpasswd samples
htpasswd prompted me for the password twice, and I entered it twice. When it quit I had a file named .htpasswd in the subsidy directory. I typed it and its contents looked correct according to the examples I've seen.
Then I restarted Apache and tried to load a page from the directory. The browser simply prompted me for the username and password over and over.
The Apache error log says, "AH01617: user samples: authentication failure for "/subsidy/filename.html": Password Mismatch."
I deleted the .htpasswd file and ran htpasswd again, specifying a different (very simple) password. I also confirmed that caps lock was not on both before and after. I restarted the server, tried to load a page, and got the same problem.
Apache seems to think I'm entering the wrong password, but that seems impossible when I've just defined it myself -- and I've tried twice, intentionally choosing a very simple password the second time. If the message means what it says, the cause must be something very different from the obvious one.
I'm running Apache 2.4.7 on a RHEL 6.4 server. I'm using the Oracle WebLogic Proxy Plugin ver 12.c to connect to a back end server.What's happening is that Apache answers URL.. and proxies the request via the WebLogic Proxy Plugin to internal.blah.com. Unfortunately, the downstream system encounters a problem and issues an http 302 redirect to internal.blah.com/whathappened. I would like to have Apache intercept this http 302 and redirect the client to URL...
I am tried to integrate Apache HTTP server and JBoss app server 7 with mod_jk module plugin in Apache.I have two instances of Jboss running and Apache server sends requests to them.I have added following code in "httpd.conf" of Apache:
My Linux Server's Http Daemon (Apache) would stop serving websites ever so often, as soon as apache is restarted the error fixes iteself only to resurface within few hours.
The apache process would still be running i.e. apache does not die but no websites hosted on my server would be accessible from browser. And when this happens the apache logs do not log any http requests.
Instead when this happens all http requests to my server would be redirected to some weird Trojan website and my Norton Antivirus would show an Alert/Warning, for example; "Browser exploit at www.xxx.xxx was blocked" Risk Name: MSIE WebViewFolderIcon ActiveX Control BO
or another error like; "Auto-Protect has detected Trojan.Fakeavalert".
At first i thought the problem could be with my Laptop/ISP so i logged on to the server via SSH and opened try to open a website using command line "lynx mywebsite.com" and it shows following error; "Alert!: HTTP/1.0 503 Service Unavailable".
Now if i assume my laptop were to be infected, then as soon as i restart my apache and visit mywebsite.com eveything returns to normal with no such warnings. Why do i see those norton error messages only when apache is down with 503, and when apache is down with 503 how come the http requests always get redirected to some suspicious websites and nothing gets logged in apache error log?
I think my server is being attacked causing http to get unresponsive and thereafter http requests to my server are redirected to some malicious website, is this correct?
Also, i suspect this is a php script exploit as some customers have reported that google have blocked their website due to security reasons, i found <iframe> tage inserted in some php pages which i fixed.
Also, another thinh i noticed; when apache responds with the 503 it is referencing PHP 5.1.4 in the header response:
[root@]# curl -I xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (my server ip) HTTP/1.0 503 Service Unavailable Server: Apache X-Powered-By: PHP/5.1.4 Retry-After: 20
I am running PHP 4.3.9m why does apache responds with PHP 5.1.4 when this 503 error surfaces?
Also, since my apache was dowan with 503 error a customer mailed in today saying; "It seems that my site www.xxxx.com is regularly down, and the winlogon virus is involved."
I suspect this is again due to the fact that http requests start getting redirected?
On our production service, we've been getting numerous malformed POST requests to some of our CGI scripts that are showing up as 500 errors in our logs. They are malformed in the sense that the actual content length doesn't match the Content-Length specified in the request.
Here's the most trivial example I can come up with that reproduces the problem for us:
In addition to the 500 error in the access log, we see the corresponding error in the error log:
(70014)End of file found: Error reading request entity data
Based on the nature of the POST request and the error response, it does appear that Apache is doing the right thing here.
The POST never actually makes it as far as the script being targeted (/some_valid_alias in the above example); in other words, Apache returns 500 to the client, writes the error to the error log and never executes the script.
Is there a way to capture/avoid internal Apache errors like 70014, and return some other HTTP status besides 500 (like 403)? It's particularly annoying in our case, because our server sends us an email for all 500 errors.
So far, our best "defense" against these 500 errors is to disallow POST for these aliases, which normally just ignore the POST data anyway (when the request is not malformed):
somebody know is possible on some way route traffic before come to web server (apache or lighttpd)?
I want to setup lighttpd on port 80 and apache on port 81 and I want visitors to go direct to apache or lighttpd without url:81 and that must work on this way if somebody visiting url1.domain.com that go to lighttpd on port 80 and if somebody visiting url2.domain.com that go to apache on port 81 and something must route it before lighttpd and apache (and get/post must work), is this possible on some way?
I know that lighttpd and apache can do it but I don`t need it on that way!
I had setup an apache home server. here the 80, 8080 ports are blocked . So I made my apache to listen to 4040 port. but the problem now is ,i use cloudflare service to point my domains to my server. now its showing error when i give my ip because the port is not 80. i tried putting dns host point to xxx.xx.xxx.xx:4040 in cloudflare but shows invalid ip ...
I have no download possibility on some computers from where I access internet, but I frequently need it.
Can I download files from the internet resource sites directly to a hosting server (just like on a PC)? Can I do it with SSH? What are minimum requirements? SSH on a shared hosting? VPS with root acces?
This is my 2nd server,i had a server with leaseweb and no probs wat so ever setting up utorrent on it.
Ive set it up on my 1%1 server but nothing is moving,ive tried random ports,ive tried turning the cisco firewall of on the 1&1 web page control pannel,but nothing moves wat so ever.
What have i missed here,theres no way they can block all ports...it says on there site all ports are avilible,but even if i picked a random port,and wasnt connectable it would still download just slow,any1 else with a 1&1 server had downloading probs with utorrnte.
I was asked to redesign one web site. Nothing much complicated. I've got username and pass to hosting provider. Now I can see the files of web site that are already there but how can I download them because only upload seems to be possible. And if so why is that so?
Has anybody ever come across a server problem, where the file is visited (e.g. domain.com/sub/file.html or domain.com/sub/file2.php) it attempts to download the file automatically as apposed to displaying the page?
I keep hearing that redirecting from http to https is not very secure [non-SSL to SSL]. Among other reasons, one reason is that the browser may continue to think it is communicating with non secure server and may not encrypt the data. Is it true? I hope not, I am using the following -
I was trying to set up a JBoss cluster with apache httpd mod cluster in windows.I was able to start the apache using the command 'httpd. exe'. But when I tried to access it using localhost:6666/mod_cluster_manager , the page was not accessible.I have the entry 127.0.0.1 localhost in my hosts file.
The http.conf contains lines as given below:
# MOD_CLUSTER_ADDS # Adjust to you hostname and subnet. <IfModule manager_module> Listen 127.0.0.1:6666 ManagerBalancerName mycluster <VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:6666>
I am trying to find out if redirecting an https URL to an http URL will still provide the security of the original https? Should the page information for the redirected http page show it as being unencrypted or shouldn't it have the same encryption as the original https?
