Step 2: CSB Side
Having got the computer ready to receive files, i took a note of its IP address and it was back to the main one which had CuteSITE installed. Opening the publish web site, options menu, I set up a new host as shown below:
Note that because I am behind a router, I had to use the IP address which i had allocated to the computer rather than the one my ISP had given me.
"htdocs" is the sub-directory of Apache2 where the web files must go to be published.
The website address is the static IP and port, commonly 80.
The FTP address is the same as the static IP.
The last thing to do is go to the Apache conf file "httpd" and add the command "index.htm" to the end of the DirectoryIndex line as shown below:
This allows the website to be viewed properly and not as a list of directories.
Five days, a lot of coffee and swearing and the help of someone who knew more about computer settings than me and its finally working properly.
