you must use
not simply aceserver 
as your acedb database server
i think the documentation is missing that explanation
or at least it is hidden so i guess that is your problem

>The Animal Breeding and Genetics group is setting up a database on the chicken 
genome, using AceDB.
>We would like to make this browsable through the WWW, like the elegans database 
on the site http://www.sanger.ac.uk/Projects/C_elegans/webace_front_end.shtml .
>I have downloaded and installed the Acebrowser as found on 
ftp://ftp.sanger.ac.uk/pub/webace/gifaceserver , and managed to get this running 
on our Linux server (Suse Linux 7). However, only the text-

software components that render the clickable GIFs are missing. Could someone 
give me an overview of which files should be installed 
>and running, in which directories on the server?
>What we've got so far can be seen on 
http://flex026.zod2.wau.nl/cgi-bin/ace/query/chickace .
>Does anyone have information on how to add the graphics, or an URL to 
documentation explaining what components should be running on the server to 
create these clickable graphics?
