View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing Apache2 "from scratch"

October 30th, 2009, 07:12 AM
Hey fellas, I installed Ubuntu Server 9.10 on my new Intel machine for learning purposes.
I need little help with installing Apache2. It came with it but I decided to remove it, download it, compile my own version of it and install it...again for learning purposes.
I do not want to sudo apt-get install apache2. I'd like to have my own apache build. Please, don't give suggestions to use apt-get -- thanks.

Now, my question is how to tell the system that I have new Apache2 installed in /usr/local/apache2?
I'm guessing I have to edit startup scripts so the system will start the new compiled binary...is that correct?
