Two Apache Servers and Configuration


I'm about to install a second apache-server to run php5, as described here:

(It won't let me post the URL, but it was a brief guide to setting up to servers, and refer to the second one with proxy-settings of a vhost)

Now I'm pretty new to linux, apache and all, and when the guide tells me to:

Add --enable-module=proxy to your Apache ./configure command.

The first question comes up: How do I do that, when the server is already installed and running?

I did not install the server, and if I have to reconfigure it or something, I must know that I'm not messing the old configuration up... how do I do that?

Add --enable-module=proxy to your Apache ./configure command.
refers to the compilation of httpd (the Apache web server program). If you already have it installed,
you've already completed the compilation (or you installed a compiled version).
It is possible that your installed Apache wasn't compiled with the given option, so what you're trying to do
may not work.

My advice, try configuring your apache first. If that doesn't work, you can consider recompiling Apache, with the given option.

But let me ask you this first: why would you need 2 Apache servers? Isn't one enough for you?
I believe any Apache can run PhP5, if it has the right module/config. But then again, I'm no expert either, so
I can be mistaken.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I kind of got it now by recompiling, took me some time though to find the old options it was compiled with. But to answer your question: I need to run both php4 and php5, and neither of them as CGI. Hope it clears it
