      And yet oddly enough, during my replacing the hardware for node 7962, httpd (Apache-2) was installed via yum and it works with the k6ib scripts.  The ONLY thing I had to do was to disable SELinux security (which also resolved a sound system issue, because SELinux negated specific permissions).  I did wander through the .conf file but I don’t remember making any changes (and I’m trying to document what has been done).


      The new hardware is an Atom based mini-ITX system (with SSD and oodles of memory, ZERO moving parts) running CentOS 6.4 [32 bit] (because other than the Debian flavor, no other IRLP install disk will load).  It’s not perfect, but it’s on line and able to do pretty much all I need it to do including the n0anm wx scripts, kk7av cwid scripts (mostly), k6ib control/display scripts and EchoIRLP and a few more things.  I’m still chasing down some anomalies, but I’m pretty happy with it.  I know the few issues left to fix, but haven’t had the time this week to do much with it.  So far, the fixes are brute force scripts (reset the audio levels to what I want, not what you think I want), later I’ll make it more elegant.


      Try ‘apt-get install httpd’ if it didn’t install.  The format may be off, I’m used to yum.  After install it should start by default on boot up or (you’ll need to translate, I don’t speak Debian which is why I stayed CentOS) ‘service httpd start’.


      I suppose it’s possible that file (or tree) configuration is different on Debian vs CentOS, which would mean research and some scripts changes.


      Failing that, you might try the ‘native’ remote admin feature (which I’ve never tried).  I doubt they’re as ‘pretty’ as the vcon/vmap web based controls, but that’s semantics.

      I just heard back from K6IB about Vcon. It isn't compatible with Apache2 at this time. As a newbie to Linux, I didn't understand the difference. He hopes to eventually find a way to make it compatible, but his time for the project is limited.

      I will go back to the drawing board on this project... read more about bash and try to understand the differences between the various versions of Apache, etc.

      HTTPD wasn't loaded first. I am using Debian and used the following commands:
      > apt-get install apache2
      > /etc/init/apache2 start

      anyone have tips as to how I can get HTTPD working so that I can then use Vcon?
