    it could be a long time, depending on your computer. when you say long time, how long has the make process been running, hour, couple hours, day....?

    well it seems to be an hour or so. Im very new to linux, so bare with me! I downloaded the source from apache.org. The i unpacked them. I used the ./configure --prefix="directory" then it told me to go to the directory and "make" the file. This is where it started, it seemed to go on for ever and looked as though it was repeating the code? I am using mandrake and if i can install software through it, shall i do this? how do i undo my manual install?

    if you just typed make then nothing is installed yet. the next step would be make install


    its not still compiling is it?

    for the newest version of apache, installing from source is generally the way to go
