I was just wondering how can I turn my Linux machine into a server? I have a lot of pics and I made a webpage that I want to make available to everyone so that they can see my pics as well. I copied the files to my public_html and I have a root index.html file that leads to other pages but I can't seem to be able to run localhost to test it. Anyone know why? Also I am noobie with Linux so none of those tutorials on Google helped. When I type in my address it leads to my routers page, which is very weird. Even in windows when I tried to set up Apache server I had everything running with localhost but as soon as I entered my IP I was redirected to my router's page. I know that there are websites that I can upload my pics to and then make a website there but i have a lot of pics and I can't do that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
