Here's an alternative, perhaps the easiest way to set up HTTP server on your own comp! (however limited to 30 days)

TZO Web Service!!!


= INSTALLATION =

1. Download TZO application at http://www.tzo.com
2. Once downloaded, run the installer (duuh!)
3. Follow the instructions (just say YES/I AGREE to everything)
4. When you're done, run TZO client.



= SETTING UP TZO =

5. Follow the instructions... until you come to a point where TZO ask for a key. Click on use Trial key and enter your email address. TZO will deliver a trial key in your email inbox.
6. Get that trial key from your email and use it on TZO client.
7. TZO should then ask about your connection and IP address. Just answer _you don't know the kind of IP you have_
8. Finally, you get to set up a domain name. For example, create:

cataclysm.tzo.com

9. There! Everything has been set up. Now the last thing you need to do is to make it online.
(don't close the app yet!)



= GETTING THE WEBSERVER & AMV ONLINE =

10. Create a special folder just for AMVs you plan to host. For example:

C:\musicvideos

11. Place your AMVs into the folder there.
12. Switch to TZO, while the client shows WebServer tab, click on the Settings tab. There's a Folder textbox down there, just map it to the folder where you placed the AMVs. For example:

C:\musicvideos\

13. There is a Start button at the bottom-right of TZO client window. Click on it!
14. If the status text shows "The Web Server is running" Success! You are now a proud owner of cataclysm.tzo.com HTTP server! The End.



Q: How do I make a HTTP link to my music video?


A: Suppose you have a AMV called dbz_crawling.mpg, the URL should be:

http://www.cataclysm.tzo.com/dbz_crawling.mpg

This is an example. Substitute the domain & file name with the right one you've made. You can then test it on a web browser to see if it works.



Some tips:

- I highly recommend that you name all your AMVs using only lowercase letters and no space characters.
- Be sure to read the TZO manual, and look through all the tabs to find some of the hidden (and useful) options.

describe your problem in details plzthnx.

have you actually followed the instructions to the point "Success!"?
what URL exactly did you entered in the browser?
Is the file link you were referring to exist?
were you connected to Internet at that time?
were you running the TZO client at that time?
was the client status text displayed "Web Server is running?"
was the detected IP address displayed on the client window NOT 0.0.0.0 or 128.0.0.1?

suppose you entered www.cataclysm.tzo.com and you got "the page can't be displayed", I figure thats because there was no index.htm in your comp _server root folder_

If the detected IP address displayed on the TZO client window is other than 0.0.0.0 or 128.0.0.1, then maybe the server is working correctly. For example, the address for my comp detected by TZO is 202.188.1.nnn and is working fine.

Using notepad, create a text file called "test.htm" and put some text in it, example:

<html><head></head><body><p>This is a test</p></body></html>

Save "test.txt" in your _server root dir_
(for example "c:\musicvideos")

Run the web server, enter the link to "test.htm" in your web browser
(for example "http://www.cataclysm.tzo.com/test.htm")

.: The browser should return "This is a test"

If you still fail at this point then maybe you should ask for help at TZO BBS.


Need I remind you that TZO only allows you to run http webserver for only 30 days. After that you have to look for other free http/ftp service. I recommend that after you managed to run tzo correctly, spend the rest 20 days learning to set up ftp server with guildftpd. If you have Qs or problems, better go to guildftp messageboard and ask there than a-m-v.org b/c not many of us here are tecchie nerds and english literate.
