Ian Reese
Lab 6: Web & FTP Servers
Lab partner: Jon

Objectives: Using Apache and Filezilla, install a webserver, create a homepage, and set up a FTP page for your partner to view and use as a test.

Notes and Observations:

First we downloaded and started up Apache. Once it was set up, we typed in localhost to see our own page:

default

Apparently I forgot to take pictures of my webpage and Jon’s once we made our HTML files and transferred them over into the folder. But we did manage to connect to one another’s webpages successfully.

After we had created our homepages, we started up Filezilla and set up FTP accounts for one another to use on our page. We had a few hiccups, which were mostly sorted out with disabling the firewall, but we managed to completely work it out on our own. Unfortunately I didn’t take too many good pictures to show the steps, but here is the end result which is Jon sending a file called “New Document.txt” over to me through the FTP I set up:

Questions: There were no questions corresponding to this week’s lab.

Conclusions: We successfully created a web server, homepage, and FTP page.
