Subject [users@httpd] Building Apache, does --prefix gets hardcoded ?
Date Tue, 10 Jun 2008 16:38:20 GMT
I am trying to create a tar ball with Apache, Tomcat and my application
to be deployed later on a server with the same kernel as the building


When building Apache HTTP server, there is an option "-prefix" passed to
"configure" script that indicates where will the result of the build end


Does it gets hardcoded into the code? Can I move later the build server
to another directory and just adjust configuration files?


For example, if I build with -prefix=/myproject/build/http, would it be
possible later on to move the location of the HTTP server to another
directory? (E.g. /opt/http) 


In other words, do I need to distribute HTTP source code and build it
when I install my application, or can I build it ahead of time and just
configure it at installation time?


Thank you.
