Information and Communication Technology undergraduate. I work as a computer technician in a local computer store, and have a fair amount of skill fixing MS Windows problems.

i run my own mail and web servers as a hobby and testbed in hopes it might prove useful for any future employments

at home, i use kubuntu as my main OS of choice. i prefer debian systems, though i do run a couple of CentOS servers.

like my computers, i prefer cold weather, hence why i live on a cold mountain, 700 meters high.

my blood type is C+ (Caffeine), and my mental status is "mental-stability-proprtional-to-computer-proximity"... no medicine found yet, not that i'm trying :D

you can prevent apache from executing scripts in certain directories somehow, i believe.

comment Apache serving old CSS content
it could be an ISP cache, or just firefox hiccuping. to make sure, if you have a *nix environment available, or you can get the win32 wget.exe, use it to download the css, but use the "--debug" switch to see who's doing the caching. if wget always pull updated files, then it's firefox's fault.

hmm... that means apache is doing some handling properly, checking apache's default webroot for centos, i just noticed it has an "index.php" not "index.html", so you might want to try that. ie, GET /index.php HTTP/1.0 and see what happens. if it lists the html contents of a page, then apache is working normally. if it persists, i'll be online again in 3 hours, or hopefully, someone else might help :)

try this on a command line, either on an ssh session in the VPS itself, or from your home computer: telnet IP_Address 80 then, type the following: GET / HTTP/1.1 Host: server_ip (2 blank lines after the Host line) apache should output the index file normally, might produce helpful errors
