Fedora is a distribution of Linux, a popular computer operating system. It is commonly used by hosting companies because it is free, and includes free web server software. Many times, they do not set up their web server correctly, and it displays this "test page" instead of the expected website.

Accordingly, please keep these facts in mind:

  • Neither the Fedora Project or Red Hat has any affiliation with any website or content hosted from this server (unless otherwise explicitly stated).
  • Neither the Fedora Project or Red Hat has "hacked" this webserver, this test page is an included component of Apache's httpd webserver software.
  • For more information about Fedora, please visit the Fedora Project website.

    You should probably do nothing. This "Default Virtual HTTP Server" should generally not be used to serve visible documents.

    However, if you have requested service from a virtual host that you think should be responding on its own behalf, then:

    • Execute /root/vhost/mkvhost <server domain name> to create the directory stucture
    • Add "use vhost <server domain name> <responsible party>" to the end of /etc/httpd/conf.d/vhost.conf to inform httpd of its existance.
    • Add content to /var/www/vhost/<server domain name>

    You are free to use the images below on Apache and Fedora powered HTTP servers. Thanks for using Apache and Fedora!
