moving software to prod server
i have some software that don't have rpms so i need to do
I don't want the compilers and other build tools on my production machine. If i do the build process on my test machine and then tar up the directory the application was installed in, can i expect it to work if i untar it on my prod machine?
For example, if i build apache how i like it on test, can i tar the entire directory, move it to prod, and have it work? How identical does the hardware on the 2 machines need to be? Is it fine as long as the base OS is the same? Do both machines need the same type of CPU, for instance both run AMD or both run Intel?
