Thanks, for your help. I really appreciate it. The PC I'm using for this is an old Dell Inspiron 4600, Pentium 4 processor and 60 gigs of memory. I want to install Apache on a Western Digital 1TB external hard-drive. The first step is mounting the hard-drive. Do you know the command prompt for this? Though I think it's not actually called a "command prompt" in Unix...lol. I've found a helpful site here:
that for the first 6 to 12 Apache stack installs you manually install everything
build source and manually set up and install everything by hand
yes it is a bit of work BUT ,it will pay off BIG TIME
you will LEARN how to set the software up and configure it
you will learn where everything IS installed
you will learn the ins and outs of the software
you will learn HOW to configure Apache as a safe and secure install
The a0pache stack it VERY easy to set up as a VERY INSECURE and very easily hacked server
it is a bit harder to have a secure and locked down ( and usable) install
then use "apt-get" or yum pr whatever to install the prebuilt packages
but that will only save you about 30 min. to 60 min. for an install
Thanks, guys. Yes, I've installed CrunchBang (Debian). It's the perfect OS for the 12 year old Dell I'm using for this project. It's way faster than the current Debian 6.0 that I tried after Ubuntu 12.04. I think I may do a clean reinstall, start from scratch and install Apache manually. Again, thanks for the input, guys. Peace
I tried Ubuntu, then Debian, and finally settled on CrunchBang for the old Dell. I plugged in my 1TB hard-drive when doing the install, and this solved the mounting problem. I installed LAMP in the postinstall. Though in truth, at this point I only need Apache to host my personal site Rainbow Solutions USA. Thinking of doing a clean install and set Apache up manually. I have until June before my current hosting with FatCow expires, and will work on getting this done over the next 2-3 months. Thanks again.
