Subject Re: [users@httpd] Proper order to install

Hello,
Thanks. Just a clarification.
When you see the downloads that say
Binaries
Source
what is the difference between the two ?
and what is precompile binary. ?
I normally go to the site (apache.org or mysql.com etc) and download from
there.
Thanks
Mark
