Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

oookay, so, ive read the readme's for everything, ive configured and make'd everything, for apache. Im aware that apache comes with RedHat 9, but, since i like doing things myself, and it was out of date, ive installed the newest sub 2.xx version.
So, im a little confused as to how or whether i should get it to start with xinetd, whether its worth the effort or whether its a good idea, and how else would i make the server start if it was in standalone mode? the Documentation wasnt too clear about that.
Also, when i do httpd -k start nothing seems to happen. i get no output, and it looks like its not running (refusing connection attempts to localhost)
I get this when i try to ./configure apache the second time around
configure: error: libjpeg.(a|so) not found.
what on earth does this mean?
BTW this is after adding the mysql, php and other crap to it
yep, im certain. its going to the path where i compiled it.
surley if it was the wrong path id just get an error from bash?
hmm, it seems that whenever i edit the httpd.conf file, it dies on me, yet when i do a configcheck or whatever it is, it says the syntax is fine
In order to make Apache start with mod_ssl automatically, the start script has to be modified. It is to be found at /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd. There, you have to search for the "start)" line and to modify it as follows:
if [ $RUNNING -eq 1 ]; then
echo "$0 $ARG: httpd (pid $PID) already running"
#if $HTTPD ; then
#modified, -DSSL inserted:
if $HTTPD -DSSL; then
echo "$0 $ARG: httpd started"
echo "$0 $ARG: httpd could not be started"
I think this is where my problem lies. it wont start SSL for some reason.. why might that be?
