    Apache with YaST or manually


    whta is the main differences of installing apache server with yast, or instaling with
    ./configure
    make
    make install
    ?
    i think that server that comes native with SuSe distributive is going to be old.... or it can be updated after that?

    If you compile something you can add/remove support for some stuff among other things.

    ./configure --help
    serzsite.com.ar

    There can be many benefits to building from source, if nothing else just to learn from it. However if you're not looking at specialising or optimising the package in some way you should probably go ahead and use YaST. It will make an uninstall or upgrade easier later too.

    i have tried to make installation with Yast, but while configuring it, it says that " at least one of the interfaces must be selected" in first step of configuring. but there is no item in 'interfaces' box....
