    Need help with installing Apache


    So I downloaded the latest Apache. The extracting direction seems easy enough, but I have no clue on the "configuring the source tree" part. I'm doing more research and reading but maybe someone have a simple explanation? And does it matter on which drive/dir you install Apache? I come from the Windows world and very new to Linux, thank you for being patient.

    Found more info on "configuring the source tree". Should I really be messing around with all these modules? don't really understand some of them. any specific ones I should pay close attention to? I'll probably use the default setup for now.

    What distro are you using? If your really uncomfortable with installing from source, theres a very good chance that your distro supports rpm's you can find an rpm for apache quite easily. just google rpm apache, and you should get several hits to install, cd to the directory that the rpm is in and type
    Code:
    rpm -i <packagename>
    thats it.
