I just installed QGIS server using the instructions provided here. I am pretty sure that I have installed QGIS properly, but I am not sure. I am using Windows 7, and XAMPP. I typed the following into my browser:
And I get a page that begins like this:
<WMS_Capabilities xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/wms" version="1.3.0" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.opengis.net/wms http://qgis.org/wms_1_3_0.xsd"> <Service> <Name>WMS</Name> <!-- Human-readable title for pick lists --> <Title>QGIS mapserver</Title> <!-- Narrative description providing additional information --> <Abstract>A WMS service with QGIS mapserver</Abstract> <KeywordList> <Keyword>QGIS mapserver</Keyword> </KeywordList> <!-- Top-level web address of service or service provider. See also OnlineResource elements under <DCPType>. --> <OnlineResource xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xlink:type="simple" xlink:href="http://www.sourcepole.ch/"/> <!-- Contact information -->
I am pretty sure this is what I am supposed to get, so I assumed that what I was doing was correct. After that, I placed a QGIS file in
C:\OSGeo4W\apps\qgis\bin and tried to view this by putting:
in my browser.
I wasn't sure if that was what I was supposed to do, so I went into QGIS > vector > add WMS/WMTS > new > URL >
When I did that, I got the error message:
Failed to download capabilities: Download of capabilities failed: Host www.localhost not found
I'm not sure why nothing is happening. One thing that might be a problem is that my computer has both IIS, and Apache on it. I set IIS and Apache to different ports by going into the httpd.conf files. However, I also had to change the httpd.conf file for QGIS server to something different for Xampp to get it to work. I was wondering if that was the problem, and if so, how would I fix it?
