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

I'd think that if it's a FreeBSD BINARY, it won't work on Linux, as they are
two completely different operating systems.  If it's SOURCE, then those
programs should COMPILE ok on either OS.  A note about installing 3rd-party
pre-compiled binaries: you never know if their server has been compromised
and if there are trojans or backdoors added to their binaries.  It's usually
best to get the source directly from the main site (or a mirror), and check
it's MD5 hash (which can also be faked but it's difficult), or better, the
PGP (or GPG) signature, to verify that it's a clean unmodified source code.
So it's good practice to spend the time to learn to do source installs, for
many reasons.  It's usually quite simple once you get the hang of it.  Just
remember to keep notes on what works for you, so you can repeat it later.
