I am currently working on a CGI scripting project for school. I need to be able to port my code over to a UNIX/Linux machine and run the script with Apache webserver. I need to know if it is possible to setup Apache on a stand alone Linux box just for the purpose of testing cgi scripts. The box has no contact with the outside right now (no modem/NIC). If Apache will run this way then what about the configuration? Is is too much trouble? Working this stuff over a SSH to the school takes for ever and it is very cumbersom too.
On another note, is it possible to get a 2K and a Linux box to talk to each other using just a pair of NIC's and a crossover?
Thanks for any help yall can provide.
