So the first thing to check is- is the web server running?
You will need to log in to the netwinder with telnet or ssh,
or using an attached keyboard/monitor.

To get the list of processes, type the command "ps ax".  THis should
give a list, look for the word "httpd" in that list (in the right-hand
column).  If you don't see it, then the web server is not running.
This could happen due to a couple of reasons.

The web server creates two log files:

Check the end of the error.log file to see why the web server has
not started.  It might be a syntax error in the config file for example.
