How to manually start apache web server (SUSE9.2)


Had intentionally disable the apache2 service (tested okay) from the Runlevel Editor and wanted to try to start the apache web server manually.

Understand that apache can be activated by running httpd daemon and also using the apachectl script.

Did a updatedb and try to locate both the "httpd" and "apachectl" but both cannot be found. What had I done wrong?

Check your runlevel scripts to confirm where your linux distro place the apache2 binaries..

alternatively, as root, from the command-prompt invoke apachectl and hit tab, it should revealed...

Hope this help.

odd....

use the packages query tool to query where exactly all installed files goes...(don't know does rpm provided this feature ?)

Did you check your apache startup script which is sys v style, I believe?

to start apache manually if using the installed apache websever use the suse startup scriprt.
As root execute "rcapache2" That will start the webserver.
