It is very difficult to answer your question, because you have not told us what your experience is, or what you are trying to do. Are you a very experienced developer? Is this a new project at your company? Are you a student doing an exercise? Do you know how to write HTML? Do you have to use a web server on the IBM i? Do you know how to create an instance of the Apache server? Do you want to create a static page or one where the data changes and is based on a data file? Have you gone to IBM's InfoCenter or seen the Redbook about using the Apache server? What version of i5/OS are you on? Or of OS/400?

Start out at - that is the Infocenter for the USA - you might want a different one for wherever you, but the USA one should be fine. You will see 3 links there, for V5R4, 6.1, and 7.1. Click on one of these. When you get to the InfoCenter you selected, find the Networking section in the list on the left, then find the HTTP Server topic and work your way there to learn about setting things up. There is also a topic for programming, if you want dynamic pages, you will have to use CGI. If you just want to make a static page, you don't need RPGLE, just a text editor.

The redbook is available at - you can find this link in InfoCenter, under related information in the HTTP Server topic.

Once you get started, Google for CGIDEV2. This can make things much easier to do, because it does not require you to learn about the CGI APIs - oh yes - do you know how to use APIs on this box from RPGLE?

Also, this is the general MIDRANGE list - there is a list dedicated to WEB - you will likely get more help there. Just be sure to say more about what you need to do, what your experience is, and what you have tried to do already.

Best wishes
