Smile Is there a linux EasyPHP i can use to install apache2?

Hello Penguins,

I am having an issue installing the tar file and i get this error--> tar -xvzf httpd-2.2.8.tar.gz
tar: httpd-2.2.8.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

What i am intending on doing is installing Apache2 on RHEL 5.1 and yes i know that the web server function is available during the install. I was googling around and most of the sites say to use EasyPHP to install Apache.

Thanks for your help in advanced.

try typing "gzip -d httpd-2.2.8.tar.gz" and then "tar -x httpd-2.2.8.tar" to extract it.

I'm not sure about any EasyPHP, but surely Google can help you find it.

One suggestion though: This archive you are extracting is probably a source code archive, rather than a ready-to-install Apache installation. Have you considered looking for an RPM of the Apache version you want to install?
