Just to extend Diego's answer slightly: when you install Greenstone you
are given a choice of installation types, with "Local Library" being the
default. In your case you want the "Web Library" version, which requires
a separate webserver (we recommend Apache). The installer provides
instructions on how to configure Apache for Greenstone.
