Are you installing source ( tar.gz ) or by RPM? I would suggest reading the docs at www.apache.org like AMDPwred suggested.. great and easy to understand documentation.

I'm in the same boat actually, I'm going to be installing Apache 2.0 for the first time this week. I'm hoping all goes well.

ok... now im stuck on something...

$ ./configure --prefix=PREFIX
$ make
$ make install


I type in ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/httpd-2.0.46

And it comes up with "No such file or directory.

1. I copied the file from my desktop to the folder /usr/local
2. Extracted it and it created the folder /httpd-2.0.46
3. im stuck

I think you need to do the following, I may be wrong but give this a try:

cd /usr/local/httpd-2.0.46
./configure --prefix=/whereyouwantinstalled
make
make install

I try that and see what you come up with.

sweet.... it worked!!

Now, how do I get my website, www.kailuawireless.net to be used in my apache on my computer?

How do I create nameservers for my domain name too?

Do you have a static ip? If you don't I don' t know if I would mess with it, if you do and you are only going to have the one domain I don't know that I would mess with setting up your own dns as you should have at least 2 dns servers (seems a waste with just one domain), what I have done is go to dns2go and setup with them, they will do the dns and point it to your ip address then you can host it on your computer and do whatever you want with it :-)


Or you can set up the dns servers but I don't know how to do that so I will leave that up to the great people here at LQ to help ya out on that one.

You can get free DNS service here: http://zoneedit.com/ . At ZE, just point it to your external IP address. Then go to where you registered your domain and add the nameservers from ZE there. All set.
