Thanks alot, that worked perfectly. Is there anyway I can get my version of apache to start up with the machine?
You'll need to modify the startup script /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd so that it starts the new version instead of the default one. Basically, all that should be required would be for you to change the path to either the httpd executable or the apachectl script, whichever way you perfer to start it. Then just reset the executable permission on /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd.
Edit: BTW, you may also want to backup /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd and then remove the version of Apache installed with Slackware, since you're not using it.
