Following the server install steps from Q-website and others mentioned, after I install qgis-server & libapache2-mod-fcgid (and mod enabled), QGIS Server should answer a GetCapabilities request:
Using my Firefox webbrowser=
which brings up a page stating:
This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
There's to much text to paste here, unless requested.
Am I mistaken to expect some kind of graphic output? NO instructions have described successful output of query.
Then instructs move on to adding a qgis project file.
..test the setup using “Add WMS Layer” in QGIS by adding the service URL such as http://localhost/cgi-bin/boundary/qgis_mapserv.fcgi and ticking “Ignore GetMap URI …” and “Ignore GetFeature URI …”.
The server you are trying to connect to does not seem to be a WMS server. Please check the URL
A dead-end at every turn..with no "trouble-shooting" instructs included or explained!
How do I serve maps on the web, using qgis-mapserver?
