Question Simple Apache Question


Very Simply,

We have a web database solution built on Apache using MySQL and PHP. We need to upgrade our version of Apache!

Can you install Apache Server version 2 on redhat 7.3? I've downloaded the RPM and first tried the --upgrade switch to upgrade my 1.3 version. I've also tried the -Ivh option. It keeps telling me that I need to upgrade Glibc and suchlike.

I have a copy of rh8.0 floating about. Would I be better off installing Apache 2.0 on that rather than faff around for ages with 7.3? Or maybe even go for rh9.0?

This solution needs to be up and running very soon. Unfortunately I don't have the time to fiddle with 7.3. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance

Apache2 can most definitely be installed; you just need to update the library it is requesting.

I'm not much of a fan of installing Apache from an RPM, though. It's the sort of application that is so customizable that you are better off building from source. The library you are being forced to update may be required *only* by the RPM version and not the source version.

You will also need to rebuild PHP once you're done with Apache. Some of the compile directives for PHP when using Apache2 are different than those for Apache 1.3.x.

The main difference when recompiling PHP is that, instead of using " --with-apxs=[/path/to/apxs]" you're going to have to use " --with-apxs2=[/path/to-apxs2]" (at least I think that's the syntax, it's been months since I last did it). Nothing major, but then again it's still important.

Straightforward? With Linux? Isn't the reason we all love it so much because we soooo enjoy spending more time installing software than using it?
