Well that is strange, on one system it won't show me any packages that are higher than 1.3.27.... and your link on another machine of mine shows me the 2.0.43's.... but it appears the RPM's your trying to install are truly made for Connectiva Linux. Not sure if they will work, I would suggest to download and install the latest apache-1.3.27-3.i686.rpm

Could you please give me a link to it, I searched on Apache.org but they said that they could not find any results for apache-1.3.27-3.i686.rpm. Also, is that the latest version?

Thank you.

Alright do this cause apache.org doesn't offer RPM file formats.

Download the latest tar.gz file named apache_1.3.27.tar.gz
And in these steps from the directory you downloaded it to, I downloaded mine to /tmp:

tar -xzvf apache_1.3.27.tar.gz
cd apache_1.3.27
./configure
make
su - root
[password]
cd /tmp/apache_1.3.27
make install
exit

Now that should install the base apache system. If you want any other options read the INSTALL or README file for any more ./configure options you may want.

After that it will usually install by default making a directory called apache to your /usr/local directory.

Your httpd.conf global configuration should be in /usr/local/apache/conf
and to start apache after editing and making any changes you might need to the httpd.conf file, start it with this command:

/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start

And that should tell you if it started the httpd services. And the default server directory should be in /usr/local/apache/htdocs to throw your html or web pages in.

To test to see if its working, just type your IP address of your machine in a browser and you should see the default apache page loaded.

You could probably do the same steps with the latest 2.0.43 version as well if you wanted, but from what I've seen the latest and best stable version is still the 1.3.xx series.. which would be 1.3.27 would be the latest version.

I just tried to follow your steps, I downloaded apache_1.3.27.tar.gz from apache.org and I am getting this message after I try tar -xzvf apache_1.3.27.tar.gz. I downloaded it to the /tmp folder.

[Justin@localhost Justin]$ tar -xzvf apache_1.3.27.tar.gz
tar (child): apache_1.3.27.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
[Justin@localhost Justin]$

Thanks
