Does Apache comes included with Fedora 5?

I just installed Fedora on my system.
I also installed Bluefish since I will be using it to do some web development.

I want to install Apache, PHP and MySQL. Now, I heard that Apache may be already included in the operating system.

So when I login as root and type httpd -v on the terminal, this comes out:

Server version: Apache/2.2.0
Server build: Feb 11 something something

So I guess this means it is installed. But I make a search for apache folder and can't find it. I also type http://localhost on the browser and it doesnt work. I have been looking on the Services and can't find it anywhere.


In what folder is Apache supposed to be, IFFFF it is installed?

Are PHP and MySQL already included with Fedora 5?

When I login as an user the httpd -v command doesnt work. Why?

Thanks in advance,

To find out if apache is installed you can use the rpm command. I believe it is rpm -qa will tell you all packages installed. Now as far as the directory for apache files it is normally
/var/www/htdocs. I would check your /etc/apache directory for more information. As far as PHP and mySQL being installed I am not sure. If you chose to install them during your pc installation then yes they are there.

You can use "rpm -qa|grep php" to search for packages that have php in the title. If certain things are not installed, like if mysql-server is not installed, you can issue the following command:
yum install mysql-server
and it will be downloaded and installed from a mirror.

The reason that command worked as root and not as a user is becuase of your path. If you type "/usr/sbin/httpd -v" it will work no matter who you are logged in as.

The default root directory for your website is /var/www/html and the config files are located in /etc/httpd/

Some packages you will need are httpd, php, php-mysql, mysql-server. You may require some others like mod_auth_mysql, mysql-administrator, system-config-httpd, httpd-manual (never hurts), mysql-gui-common

Make sure selinux is disabled in the /etc/selinux.conf file too or you'll pull your hair out. Run system-config-securitylevel to alter your firewall. Make sure apache is running.


apache, httpd, mysql, php
