Disabling network documentation service
The DocView server is initially configured to serve the documentation
to any machine on your network. You can change the
configuration to only serve to browsers running on the same machine.
As root, edit the file /usr/lib/docview/conf/httpd.conf
to change the directive
the fully qualified network name for the machine to
127.0.0.1. For example:
In the same file, add this directive:
In the same file, change the
Listen directive to the following:
Save the file and restart the DocView server with this command:
If the search index has not been run
since installation, then do the following step (a).
If the search index has been run already, then do
step (b). You can tell if it has been run because the
file /usr/lib/docview/en/htdig.conf is
not zero length (which means it has been configured).
Edit the file /usr/lib/docview/conf/install.conf and change:
Now when the index is run for the first time, it will be
configured only for local access.
If the index has already been run at least once, then edit
the file /usr/lib/docview/en/htdig.conf and
change all instances of your fully qualified network hostname
127.0.0.1. Be sure to leave the port number as 8457.
If the search index has been generated, it will have to be entirely
rebuilt because the file addresses in the database use the
local address, not the network address. If you don't rebuild it,
only local users can use the search function successfully.
To rebuild the search index, or to build it for the first time,
run this command:
