Difference compiling from source or rpm
I'm a newbie.... Can anyone tell me the difference from compiling from Source and rpm ?
I've un-installed 2.0.47 and tried from the rpm --install <file> And it works fine. However, if i want to install other apache additions, it would have to find each module indivually correct ? Also, it uses the "httpd2.conf" file instead of the "http.conf".. is there a difference ?
I also tried installing apache 2.0.48 from source after 2.0.47 was completely removed and the installation loosk cleaner. However, I've noticed "httpd" is removed from the automatic services section from the gui(kde). This method uses the standard "httpd.conf" file.
I would like to installl all the extra components like ssl, perl, mysql etc...
Thanks in Advanced.
