Re: serving the web without a web server
> I have something bizarre happening: I serve some web sites, including http://www.dynamiccompany.co.uk and even though I've stopped apache (apachectl stop), I can still ping the web site:
You are confusing network access (ping) with web access (apache).
The two are not related. After stoping apache you should not be
able to connect to port 80 where the web server is normally located.
But you should be able to ping the box. How else would you log into
the box in order to stop or start apache?
Now if you stop networking or turn the power off you should not be
able to ping the box anymore. Don't try that if you are doing remote
adminstration or you will need to gain physical access in order to plug
it back in again.
