A WebServer Guide -- Help Using Apache
Creating Makefile in src/modules/standard
Unless errors were reported
(not warnings, mind you), your Apache installation is now configured and we
can move on. This is where things get a bit ugly -- not difficult, mind you,
only ugly. Makeing Apache produces screenfulls of scary-looking output, but don\'t
worry -- as long as the process doesn\'t stop suddenly with an error message,
all is as it should be.
Your screen should look
make: Entering directory `src/httpd/apache_1.3.11\'
make: Entering directory `src/httpd/apache_1.3.11/src\'

-DNO_DL_NEEDED `../apaci` -o ab -L../os/unix
-L../ap ab.o -lap -los -lm -lcrypt
make: Leaving directory `src/httpd/apache_1.3.11/src/support\'

install your Apache build.
# make install
And you\'re done! Pretty

make output can bring
about mild eye-strain ;-)

(contains cgi, icons/images, and html files)
Apache uses some rather easy
to understand text files for configuration. On a Red Hat system, you\'ll find
them in /etc/httpd/conf. Quite
a few Linux distributions place them in this same place, but if you can\'t find
such a directory, do a search for \"httpd.conf\"
and/or \"access.conf\". The latest versions of
Apache have a main configuration file called \"httpd.conf\".
Older versions use httpd.conf,
access.conf and srm.conf.
Once you find these, you\'ve found the main config
Here\'s how you can find

su as the root operator)
