Subject installing new Apache on RH Linux
Date Tue, 26 Mar 2002 14:06:57 GMT
I have installed Red Hat 7.2 on a computer, and during the RH setup I chose 
"web server", which means I get a httpd directory under /etc, and scripts 
for httpd in the rcN startup system (forgive me if I am being too 
elementary, I am new to Linux).  The Apache ver installed with RH seems to 
be 1.3.20, so I downloaded 1.3.24 and built and installed it, and now have 
the new Apache under /usr/local/apache.

My question is, what is the best way to integrate the new Apache with the 
RH system, particularly with regard to hooking it into the rc scripts so it 
will start automatically?  I have thought of a couple ideas, but there must 
be a "best" way, and I have no idea what that is.  I found only a very 
little about startup scripts in the FAQs, and it did not help me.

Thanks.  -Eric
