    I have installed ubuntu 10.10. installed lamp everything seems to be working fine. except.....

    I am not smart enough to figure out how to get a web site to working. more precisely where to put the files for a new web site and how to make apache2 see them.

    any help would be appreciated.

    If you just want to run one web site on the server, you can place them in /var/www - that's the default document root on Ubuntu.

    Thanks falko

    I had figured out that much let me try to explain what i want.

    I want to set up an oscommerce store on this server. I have a little experience (very little) with oscommerce.

    I do not know how to make the server let me see a folder to put these files in so i can unpack them to set up the store.

    do i need to make a new index.html file to put in this var/www file? or do I need to change some settings in the apache2 configuration.

    I do appreciate any input.
