I just talked to Katherine and the fact that you can still view your
library remotely may have to do with internal networks being able to
access the pages served by the local library server.

You do in fact need to use an Apache web server if you
1. want your pages accessible to the outside world
2. want the client-gli (remote client) to connect to it, because the
Local Library Server does not use the cgi scripts that deal with the
remote greenstone stuff, yet that's what the client-gli expects.

I've never had that problem before. What you could do is try setting up
the Apache web server again from scratch or alternatively send me your
httpd.conf file to have a look at. Make sure that you haven't changed
anything in the file since the error, or else the line may be off. If
you have made changes to httpd.conf since your email to us, try starting
the web server again and make a note of which line it complains about
now and send it in with the file.

Thanks,
Anupama
