Trouble getting httpd server up

I ftp'd the binaries and ...

% install httpd_2.02-beta /kaos/data1/bin/httpd
% install www_2.0-alpha /kaos/data1/bin/www
% rehash

I wanted to serve an existing directory tree

% httpd -v -p 8009 -dyt /kaos/data1/gopher-data &
httpd -v -p 8009 -dyt /kaos/data1/gopher-data &
[1] 9081
% Rule: For `/*' op 2 `/kaos/data1/gopher-data/*'
Rule: For `*' op 3 `(null)'
Daemon: Parsed address as port 8009, inet
IP: Opened socket number 3
Daemon: Master socket(), bind() and listen() all OK
Daemon: Waiting for connection or message. (Mask=8 hex, max=4 hex).

albeit with no httpd.conf file present.

Now I tried to look at the server

% www
Daemon: New incoming connection:
Daemon: Accepted new socket 4
Daemon: Waiting for connection or message. (Mask=18 hex, max=5 hex).
Message waiting on socket 4
Daemon: Reading socket 4 from host
Daemon: net read returned 128, errno=0

**** HTAccess: socket or file number returned by obsolete load routine!

[1] Exit 172 httpd -v -p 8009 -dyt /kaos/data1/gopher-data

I get the same error when I use the www_1.4 client.

Why are HTFile and HTAccess looking at:


Do I need a .html file in /kaos/data1/gopher-data ?
