Squeezebox Setup

Adding a webserver

Installing the webserver is very easy – CentOS has apache in its main repos, so we can just do this:

[root@tranquilpc ~]# yum install httpd
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: mirrors.dedipower.com
* updates: mirrors.dedipower.com
* addons: mirrors.dedipower.com
* extras: mirrors.dedipower.com

httpd i386 2.2.3-22.el5.centos.1 updates 1.2 M
Installing for dependencies:

apr i386 1.2.7-11 base 122 k
apr-util i386 1.2.7-7.el5 base 76 k

Transaction Summary

Update 0 Package(s)
Remove 0 Package(s)

Total download size: 1.4 M

Next we need to create an area for apache on the main RAID disk. Again the easiest way to do this is under /home

Create root directory on the RAID disks:

[root@tranquilpc conf]# cd /home
[root@tranquilpc home]# mkdir apache
[root@tranquilpc home]# chown -R apache:apache apache

Then we need to edit the config file to reflect this home area. So edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and change:

DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"


DocumentRoot "/home/apache"


<Directory "/var/www/html">


<Directory "/home/apache">

Then enable the httpd service and turn it on:

[root@tranquilpc ~]# chkconfig httpd on
[root@tranquilpc ~]# service httpd start
Starting httpd: httpd: apr_sockaddr_info_get() failed for tranquilpc
httpd: Could not reliably determine the server’s fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName
[ OK ]

You should now be able to navigate to your NAS in a browser ( for me) and see the default web page.
