I have been running RH8 as desktop for over a month and like it.
I installed the PHP-MYSQL-4.2.RPM
The install went fine I think no errors.
However I was expecting to check first if Apache was running by doing an http://localhost/
and get a screen back. However It doesnt work I get "Connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost.
OK then i searched and found to try in a terminal httpd start or apachectl start.
This does not work.
Locate apachectl - returns nothing.
I hvae an etc/httpd/ dir but no bin directory.
I tried to install httpd-2.0.43 .rpm it says it was installed.
Any help I want to finish the year with another thing done in linux.
I was then going to work on checking php to run and then my sql.
So this is the first step I think.
