    How do you find out if Apache is installed?

    I need to know how to find out if Apache is installed on a RH server. When I try to run the command 'service httpd start' I get an error message failed.

    This is what I get when I try to start the service.

    service httpd start
    Starting httpd: httpd: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName

    So I added the servers static ip address in the httpd.conf file and just get Starting httpd: [FAILED]

    And when I check to see if any httpd processes are running I get this.
    ps -aux |grep httpd
    root 22140 0.0 0.1 5076 588 pts/0 S 01:50 0:00 grep httpd

    do you know where your apache error log file is located?
    if so jsut do a tail -f <filename? and see the error message.
    unless you post the error message things will be difficult to debug.
    Fixing Unix is better than working with Windows.

    I've came to the conclusion that apache is not installed on the server. Does anyone know of a good tutorial or could walk me through the basics on getting apache installed on a dedicated RH server remotely with ssh?

    Apache is installed, you just have to edit apache's config files..

    I've looked around and found the following files:
    /etc/httpd/ --> config files

    but can't find an apache directory.
    ran rpm -q apache and returns that it is not installed.
    since apachectl is on the system does that mean that apache has to already been installed?

    run "apachectrl start" to start it.

    in redhat, apache doesnt have its own directory for binaries, you just have your httpd in /usr/bin/ from what i remember.

    When I try to start apache with /apachectl start I get the following error.
    httpd: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName.
