    What distribution are you using? There's two thing that stand out there...either it's a source tarball and it needs to be compiled and installed correctly, or at best you need to insert a service for httpd using chkconfig or its equivalent.

    On a side note if you used 'extract here' in /usr/local you are likely running your desktop as root...that's a terrible idea and will almost certainly cause you trouble in the future.
