document root at: /home/httpd/html
have a good look round /home/httpd/ as it holds you cgi-bin and images dirs
You will find docs in /usr/doc/httpd or apache I forget which on RedHat
The config files live in /etc/httpd/conf/
read the httpd.conf / access.conf and srm.conf as these all have lots of
comments / examples.
also in there you will find module dirs (where all the modules get put!)
if you point you browser on your windoze box to
you will get an apache "it worked message" on the same page is a link to the
apache online manual in html (you will find in /home/httpd/html/manual)
which has details on ALL your questions.
If you have any others look at the archives of this group at www.deja.com
: Ok, go easy on me. I am new at this. At the linux cdrom prompt I type
:'rpm -i apache-1.3.3-1.i386.rpm'. Now what? Where did it install apache?
:Do I have to compile it? I am trying to learn some Internet programming,
:and I thought this would be a good place to start.
: I run RH 5.2 on a Dell, into which I telnet from Windows via ethernet.
I am trying to install apache 1.3.3 on a linux release 5.1 kernel 2.0.35
gcc version 18.104.22.168
I get the message
Configuring for Apache, Version 1.3.3
+ Warning: Configuring Apache with default settings.
+ This is probably not what you really want.
+ Please read the README.configure and INSTALL files
+ first or at least run './configure --help' for

Creating Configuration.apaci in src
Creating Makefile in src

+ setting C compiler to gcc
+ setting C pre-processor to NOT-AVAILABLE
+ checking for system header files

+ doing sanity check on compiler and options
** A test compilation with your Makefile configuration

I have tried this on two pc's with the same results. I have seen other news
messages with similar problem........any help is appreciated.
