Install Apache HTTPD on RedHat Linux


I am trying to install the apache http server on a redhat 64 bit install that's running on VMWARE.
Apache doesn't provide an rpm.but they say I can convert the source tarball to an rpm using this command
rpmbuild -ts httpd-2.4.x.tar.bz2
From the apache website I downloaded httpd-2.4.3.tar.bz2

when I try the command above I get rpmbuild command not found.

So I try to install rpmbuild package. In the Applications->Add/Remove Software i search on rpmbuild and don't find anything.

I typed in yum install rpmbuild

and initially got
bash-3.2# yum install rpmbuild
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.
Setting up Install Process
No package rpmbuild available.
Nothing to do

Then I went online and found a sample yum.conf file and replaced the one that I had in /etc and tried the same command and got these messages
http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linu...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: core. Please verify its path and try again

I have a certain familiarity with Ubuntu, this is my first adventure with RedHat- and was forced on me due to an online course I am doing.

I'd surely appreciate any help.

Thanks!

I'm not a Redhat user anymore, but IIRC Redhat provides an Apache httpd RPM - if you didn't install it with your initial install, you can install it with rpm -Uvh httpd-<version>.<arch>.rpm (depending on the version and your architecture).

Of course it's possible that Redhat has changed a lot since I was a regular user...

Hi,
I managed to locate httpd-2.4.3-15.fc19.x86_64.rpm online by a google search and tried to install it using that command (also by opening with package manager)
I get a list of failed dependencies.

Missing Dependency: liblua-5.1.so()(64bit) is needed by package httpd-2.4.3-15.fc19.x86_64 (/httpd-2.4.3-15.fc19.x86_64)

Shouldn't the install process take care of installing dependent packages too?

I did come across the What's Yum site earlier and that's how I figured out enough to run the yum commands that didn't work.

Thanks

1.
Code:
This system is not registered with RHN.
You need to register this system with RH so you can use yum correctly AND keep your system updated.


2. Alternately:

a) create a local repo from the Install media and use that instead
https://code.google.com/p/iredmail/w...Yum_Repository

b) convert to Centos instead, which is a free rebuild of RHEL

3. That last you mentioned is for Fedora 19 '.fc19.'. Don't even think of trying to use it on this OS

First things first, I'm having to use a VMware image that is provided to me by this online course I'm taking that has the relevant s/w pre-installed in it. I can't follow along with the course unless I use it. it also means that I don't have the original install CD/DVD.
The course instructions seem to assume I've httpd in place and I have posted on their forum explaining my problem and haven't heard back.

I thought I'd try and install apache while I wait for a response.

Unfortunately, So I don't have the flexibility of using Centos, much as I'd like to.

I tried to run the rhn_register command. I get a message requiring me to buy a subscription (or unentitle an unused one). I don't really want to buy anything to complete what is supposed to be a free online course!

I found that rpm at this site
rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=httpd

Wasn't sure which to pick for my OS, just picked the first!

Looks like I'm SOL at this point unless the course organizers come back with some suggestions?

Thanks!

I am a little bit surprised that an online course is providing unregistered copies of Red Hat VMware images. Would you be so kind to provide a link to that onli9ne course, I would like to have a look at that.

Sure...
The site is
http://bigdatauniversity.com/

I signed up for the course Hadoop Fundamentals.

you can click on courses in the main page and then under Big Data, Hadoop Fundamentals. You need a userid/pwd to actuall sign up tho.

Once you do and actually are on the course's web page, choose option 4 "Download and use the supplied VMWARE image".

My VMWARE session does say "non-commercial use only" in the title bar- don't know if that makes a difference.

Thanks for willing to try this out.
Regards

I couldn't download the image parts, getting a not found on server message. Will try again later.
