Then do this if you don't want to move it.

delete the old httpd (the one being called by the init scripts)
then create a symlink in the directory that the old httpd was installed and create a link
called httpd linking it to the /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd

it would look like the following command

ln -s /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd /"the directory that the old httpd was in"

this will create a sym link from the httpd that is in the "the directory that the old httpd
was in" to the httpd in /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd

hope that helps

Paul

Subject: RE: Red Hat 7.2 and Apache

That's not what I want. All of the books I have on configuring/administering
Apache, show the httpd executable installed at /usr/local/apache. That's
where I want to keep the new files to make it easier for me to figure out
but want to configure Linux to load the new httpd executable but not the old
one at boot-time. There has to be an init???.conf file someplace in the RH
install that is run a boot-time that can be modified to do this. It took me
about an hour to find the originally installed Apache executable and have no
clue as to why Red Hat would not follow industry standards as to install
locations. Linux is confusing enough for Windows users to learn but to put
an executable somewhere else other than where 90% of the documentation on
that file says it should be is just plain stupid.

Sorry about rant but I'm just learning Linux and am getting more frustrated
every time I try to get this ISP running right.
