Post Apache, Perl, PHP and ASP


Hello
I want to switch my web server completly from windows to linux. and i need help doing the following (Please remember im a :

1. I dont know how to install Apache 2.0.47. I downloded a file called httpd-2.0.47.tar.gz hoping i could use the documetation on the apache site to install it but im still a newbie so i didnt understand it.

2 i need to install PHP 4.3.3 but i dont know how. I saw thew documentation but i thought i could not install it yuet because i need apache.

3. I need Perl to be running on the server. i downloded ActivePerl 5.6.1 from the active state website. But i dont know how to install it and i thought i cant istall it yet because of apache.

4. Does Apache support ASP Pages? I searched google and found that i need Apache::ASP for asp to run on apache is this true or will it work with out it. If i need that aswell, guess wot ( hehehehehe) I dont know how to install it aswell.

Can any one help me?

if use command tar -zxvf xpdf-2.02pl1-linux.tar.gz
gz stand for gunzip
tar just tar file, just link zip
once those file got extract, vi all the documents like INSTALL, README, it will give you some info how to compile and install..
all those tar or gunzip file all have infomation how to install it and get it running..

hope this help..

Depends on which Distro you are using. There is a big chance that Apache, PHP and Perl are installed for you already, or at least are available on the CD. How you install them also depends on your Distro.

If they are not, then you can go to your Distro's download page (if any) and look there (this is if you don't want to download the source and compile it yourself)

You'll need both Apache::ASP and mod_perl to run ASP.

... and johnyy, you can always "edit" your post anytime

hello
Thanks for your replys. I know i havent already got apache installed because i wanted to install it from the Source, But i did have ant option for installing it while installing linux. I tried tar -zxvf httpd-2.0.47.tar.gz it extracted and i used vi on INSTALL it says i have to use ./configure --prefix=PREFIX but replace PREFIX with a prefix but i dont know it.
