Apache Install


I followed the directions of the Apache Docs online. I have done a default install. I can start and stop the server but before I did a fresh install, I could run:

Code:
/sbin/service httpd start
and I'd get the little [OK] when things went well. How can I reset that up? Thanks, Jeremy

You need to modify your script /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd - change all the pathes to fit your new installation.

I don't have a file like that. I have a fresh Red Hat install with no previous version of Apache on it. What to do now? Thanks, Jeremy

Look into /etc/rc.d/init.d, browse the files and find the one you find easiest to modify. Change programname to right Apache path and see if it works. After some modifications it will work.

If your just looking for a way to start httpd you can do:

/etc/init.d/httpd start

I don't know if this is what your after but its definetly an alternative.

There in lies the problem. I don't have a /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd file. I need one. I either need someone to attach theirs or send me the code to create my own. Thanks, Jeremy

In fact you can simply make a symlink. File apachectl (from the same directory httpd is in) can do.
./apachectl start
./apachectl stop
and so on...

I hate to be a burden but I'd really like to have someone's /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd source so that I could do it the old way. I know it seems dumb but once you get used to something, you get used to it. All you have to do is:

Code:
kedit httpd
Copy, paste and BOOM, I'm cooking again. Thanks, Jeremy

The thing is that I don't have it. But my boyfriend has a copy of his old one, so I can paste it.

I'm not really sure if it's a good idea. The file is quite long and symlinking apachectl seems to be a beter idea.

But...If you really want it... I hope there are longer posts...

Thanks Mara. I appreciate your help. I think that symlinking is "easier" and it might be my best bet. I do think that I'd like to look at your post so that I can see how I can make Apache a service like the /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd file does. With that file, you can also make it where you can open the "Services" tool from the GUI and start and stop it from there. I thank you, Jeremy
