Start Apache at boot-time

I have installed apache, latest version as described on their documentation pages. However they only give a vauge overview of how to configure it so that it will start at boot time.

There is an older version of apache that came with my current distro SuSE 9.2 that is in YaST, what i want to do is basically remove this one and replace it in YaST with my new install so I can configure it from there to start up at boot time.

At the moment it starts the old web server ( old version) at boot time.

I read somewhere that you can download things such as apache.rpm and then install these using YaST, by right clicking on the package and selection actions -> install with YaST, is this true ? I havn't been able to find any resource for this!

I would be very gratful to anyone who might be able to help me get around this!

Go to /etc/rc.d folder and locate the rc.apache or rc.httpd file. (t might be called a bit different in your distro) and open it with a text editor. See what file it starts and see which one you want it to start, change accordingly and you are off. This file shouldn't be to big, so you should be able to find your way in it
