Questions about Apache


Hi ALL:

Situation:
I would like to install the Apache in my Debian machine (3.0r2, kernel 2.4).
Also, I would like to keep my machine as simple as possible.

Question 1.

However, the apt-get installation will also install the the mail server and client?
Actually, my machine does not need this (no e-mail services provided).

What can I do?

Question 2.

Can I install the php module by the apt-get?

Quesiton 3.

The apt-get insatll the version 1.3 apache. Can I install the version 2.0?

How are you issuing the command? I don't remember installing apache and it installed a mail server/client.

Sure, why not?

Sure. Do you need to know *how* to do this?

I remember when I first fiddled with apt-get and stuff...very cool package manager but didn't know how to grab the latest releases tho . After time and time playing with it, you then realize it's just freaking awesome! Let me know if you need any help.

apache2 is a separate package which can coexist with apache

php is a package for both apache and apache2, but it didn't seem to add the LoadModule line to my /etc/apache/modules.conf file, which I did myself. This was made all the more difficult because the module is not named like all the others mod_php4.so but was in fact libphp4.so or something like that. beware!

try out "aptitude" for package management. very neat and powerful.
