    You are trying to build from source? What's wrong with binary Apache provided by Debian?
    Building from source is OK indeed, but then, why Debian?!

    The reason is because I don't really know what the heck I am doing... I am just trying to install an asset management program call Tactic and part of the instruction says:

    "Tactic is best installed behind an Apache web server. You can download Apache software at Welcome! - The Apache Software Foundation. The Tactic application server is able to serve up static content such as images, PDF files, Quicktime files, and so on, but it is not the most efficient at this because it is written in Python. This is what Apache is designed for. By running Tactic behind Apache, it relieves Tactic from having to serve up this static content, so Tactic can focus on the dynamic content. For production use, it is highly recommended that Tactic run behind the Apache server. This has many scalability advantages. When running behind Apache, Apache uses a reverse proxy and mod_rewrite module to forward requests to communicate with Tactic"

    Have no clue what this Tactic is. Can you provide a link?
    As for installing Apache and it's modules just use Debian repositories.

    Link for Tactic Tactic Southpaw Technology

    So are you saying I shouldn't need to do anything as far as Apache goes and just proceed with my installation of Tactic?

    If you want to install apache onto debian the best way would be to use the following command as root user:


    Code:
    apt-get install apache2
