Cool RedHat 8.0 and Apache 2

Yes, I am a !

I have installed RedHat 8.0 with Gnome on an IBM ThinkPad T21. I want to run a webserver on the machine, so I chose the webserver during the install. I've had some trouble finding where all the files for Apache are stored, so I decided to remove it and install Apache from the Apache site.

I tried to remove it from the Package Manager, but it tells me I need to remove some other package. (I don't remember the exact package.) When I attempt to remove the other package, I get the same error.

Am I stuck with having to reload linux, or is there another way around it?

If I have to reload, should I stick with RedHat or is there another distro that anyone could recommend?

Thanks folks

what files are you after? all you should need should be in /etc/httpd/conf such as httpd.conf you won't really benefit from installing from source. just make sure it's all installed properly. If you do want to remove it then you've not provided any real useful information abuot what these packages are and such like.

Well, I think half the problem is that after I installed RedHat w/ the webserver, I couldn't find it (until now) I then went and installed apache from the downloaded .tar.gx to /usr/local/apache2.0.43, and kind of confused myself.

Now when the machine boots up, I see "module php4_module already started. Skipping." If i try to stop or start Apache again (using apachectl stop and apachectl start), i get the same message. However, if I use apachectl restart it seems to restart fine (with php4 working).

I'm not sure what I need to do to have the webserver start normally on boot up. (nevermind tryng to get mySQL to work right... but that's another post and another install that I will get to once I can get the webserver working!

As there is nothing on the machine right now, I may just start over and try it again, if you have any suggestions on the right way to do the install...
(Oh, on a side note - and this may or may not be important - Apache would start fine before I started messing around with php.)
