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.

It depends how you change it. If you run ./configure with extra options, you need make and make install. If you're changing one of Apache source files, only make and make install (it will be shorter than the first case, because only changed files will be compiled).
If you installed it from source then just recompile it. First do:
This will give you a list of options to choose from. What ever options you want to add put them in your ./configure statement. Like lets say the option to add php support is --enable-php(Which I don't think it is) You would do:
./configure is where you add your options like --enable-supermantoflythroughmyscreen or whatever.

Hmm. Very interesting thing happened when I tried to restart the apache server after doing a bit of recompiling. Here is an error message I received:
[root@ubergeek apache_1.3.27]# /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl restart
/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl restart: httpd not running, trying to start
Syntax error on line 205 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /usr/local/apache/libexec/libphp4.so into server: libdb2.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl restart: httpd could not be started
I did not do anything fancy when I was compiling apache. This is what I specified:
