Apache and httpd


Hi all,
I am trying to set up my box so family and friends can view pictures when they go to my address. I am using Redhat 9. My
question is what is the difference between Apache and httpd.
I have httpd running on my box. But when I look for Apache it says the package is not installed. But when i grep for apache it comes up.

[root@socalsharps home]# px |grep apache
apache 21355 21352 0 20:53 ? 00:00:00 [httpd]
apache 21356 21352 0 20:53 ? 00:00:00 [httpd]
apache 21357 21352 0 20:53 ? 00:00:00 [httpd]
apache 21358 21352 0 20:53 ? 00:00:00 [httpd]
apache 21359 21352 0 20:53 ? 00:00:00 [httpd]
apache 21360 21352 0 20:53 ? 00:00:00 [httpd]
apache 21361 21352 0 20:53 ? 00:00:00 [httpd]
apache 21362 21352 0 20:53 ? 00:00:00 [httpd]
root 21375 20633 0 21:00 pts/0 00:00:00 grep apache

Is httpd the same as Apache. I am confused. I tried to install an apache rpm and there were alot of conflicts with my httpd. I need some help please.

Thanks,
Nazs

Hello nazs,

Yes httpd is the name of apache. To check which version of apache you are using try this on your console after logging as root :

Code:
 rpm -q apache
.

What do you exactly means by conflicts ? Means what messages you got ? can you be a little bit expressive.

Thanks, Kirtimaan/

Here is what I get when I rpm -q apache:

rpm -q apache
package apache is not installed

for rpm -q https:

rpm -q httpd
httpd-2.0.40-21

I am trying to get Gallery to work but it says it has problems with Redhat 9 and which uses apache2/httpd 4.2 which I have.
When I try to install version 4.3 there are many faild dependencies. I don't understand why these programs were not installed with httpd 4.2.

Thanks,
Nazs

my guess, is that one of the dependencies you need is:

http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/redhat...0-21.i386.html

Hi megaspaz,

I Clicked on url given by you and Got this page :


--------
Welcome to fr2.rpmfind.net

It seems that you typed in an incorrect URL, or were redirected to an outdated HTML page by a search engine.

If you are looking for Linux software, follow this link to the database
--------

Probably you make some typo error.

Thanks, Kirtimaan.

that's odd. it's a copy and paste, so there shouldn't be a typo...

http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/redhat/...1.11.i386.html

here's the main link. You'll need to find the devel package that matches your installed version of httpd.

Second one worked!

Thanks all for your responses. I ended up upgrading my system to Fedora Core 4. Everything seemed to have gone smooth.

Thanks Again,
Nazs
