Subject Re: [users@httpd] building and installing on different servers, different directories
Date Tue, 31 Jan 2012 12:39:31 GMT
Asuming both servers are pretty much same, ie same linux kernel and
packages, why dont you install apache on the dev server under lets say
/usr/local/apache2 and then transfer the complete apache2 directory onto
prod server?
