Hi everyone,

First, let me say that I deployed a turnkeylinux file server 18 months ago as far as I can recall.. Since then, I left it behind since files are still accessible via the local network.

Now my problem is that the ip/url access from a url or browser shows up differently and I never bothered to fix. However, now requirements have changed and I need to add access so that staff can connect remotely.

If I go to x.x.x.x/index.lighttpd.html then this is what I get :


You should replace this page with your own web pages as soon as possible.

Unless you changed its configuration, your new server is configured as follows:

  • Configuration files can be found in /etc/lighttpd. Please read /etc/lighttpd/conf-available/READMEfile.
  • The DocumentRoot, which is the directory under which all your HTML files should exist, is set to /var/www.
  • CGI scripts are looked for in /usr/lib/cgi-bin, which is where Ubuntu packages will place their scripts. You can enable cgi module by using command "lighty-enable-mod cgi".
  • Log files are placed in /var/log/lighttpd, and will be rotated weekly. The frequency of rotation can be easily changed by editing /etc/logrotate.d/lighttpd.
  • The default directory index is index.html, meaning that requests for a directory /foo/bar/ will give the contents of the file /var/www/foo/bar/index.html if it exists (assuming that /var/www is your DocumentRoot).
  • You can enable user directories by using command "lighty-enable-mod userdir"

About this page

This is a placeholder page installed by the Ubuntu release of the Lighttpd server package.

This computer has installed the Ubuntu operating system, but it has nothing to do with the Ubuntu Project. Please do not contact the Ubuntu Project about it.

If you find a bug in this Lighttpd package, or in Lighttpd itself, please file a bug report on it. Instructions on doing this, and the list of known bugs of this package, can be found in the Ubuntu Bug Tracking System.



I would appreciate a quick fix solution if there is any..Thanks for reading and any help is most welcome.
