You should be modifying /etc/apache/httpd.conf (unless you have built the

According to the documentation for apache 1.3 - you should be loading
mod_dir module somewhere in your httpd.conf (usually it is already included,
but could be commented out - in which case you should uncomment the line;
otherwise, this is the line from my httpd.conf:

LoadModule dir_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/mod_dir.so

then, somewhere in your httpd.conf you should also include the following

<IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.shtml index.cgi
This 'should do the trick'.

although thanks your advice, but after I modify(adding that 3 lines) my /etc/apache/httpd.conf
then reboot
open mozilla 1.2.1-3 newest from debian upgrade of unstable, type in http://www.linuxspice.com/checkout
it still a piece of white
but if you click my wite's bottom's hyperlink checkout, it do can show the content I edit in my /var/www/checkout/index.html
please help again or any linuxer's advice
sincere Eric

As far as your cgi's are concerned, debianized system would often keep its
cgi scripts in /usr/lib/cgi-bin - but you should make sure that your
httpd.conf has appropriate entries for cgi's:

LoadModule cgi_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/mod_cgi.so

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/

<Directory /usr/lib/cgi-bin/>
    AllowOverride None
    Options ExecCGI
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

[these lines were taken from the default httpd.conf supplied with debian's
apache package]

Hope this helps... if you are having problems with cgi's in apache, you
should read over the following:
