Slackware8: upgrade Apache1 to Apache2
Just did a full install of Slackware8. Part of that install is Apache1. I just downloaded the source for Apache2 and try to get that working, but it wont. After doing ./configure then make and make install I tried to start the service by typing in /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start but it doesnt do anything. I check whats running by using nmap, and all that I show is SSH (I shut everything else off). So I tried again, I typed /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start and it acts like its working, yet does nothing. The process never actually starts. When I type /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl stop just to see what it says, it says its not running. It returns NO error messages when I type /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start.
I figured it might not be working due to something with Apache1 aleady being installed, so I basically removed every single file I could that had anything to do with Apache1. Then I did a configure, make, make install again with Apache2 and tried to start it... same results... nothing happens.
