The Project; Part 1

You must submit a partially completed version of your project on Nov 20th worth 25% of your project grade.

The Web Server

Eric Chan has prepared us a mini http server to use since we are not allowed to use
Download it here.

To run it, first @chmod it on the Linux command line:

chmod 755 thttpd

… then cd (change directory) to the folder you downloaded it to, and execute with the following:

./thttpd -d /www$HOME

Open your favorite web browser (FIREFOX) and hit up http://localhost:8080/ to visit files and CGI scripts in your ENCS web space!
