Subject RE: [users@httpd] apache and frontpage
Date Mon, 10 May 2004 00:56:43 GMT
Thanks for the link gary. I think I will just install Apache tool box since 
I need php,mysql,perl, and frontpage installed. Their URL is: I will tell you the result if I can I do it. First I 
will await a responce for a post I left on their forum for what apache 
version is included in the latest.
