Apache is usually the default that most Distros install. Depends what you are going to do with the site. Just display static pages, sell products where one can buy online. If simple then default apache config is fine. If needed for selling then many options need to be configured. Might try to find someone to setup something like that if needed. If just simply static pages then there are many choices besides Apache.

I would go with Apache 1.3, it's slightly simpler to configure, but Apache 2 is going to be the new standard so if you're brave you can go ahead and use that.

I use Apache 2...I prefer Apache 2.0 as all the configging is in one file...2.2 uses separate files which may be more efficient, but a little more annoying.

Got the download but do not see a setup file. What do I do? Does this have a Cpanel? This is new to me, but I wanna learn so I can run my website from here and any other site I do. Thank you all your help.

To install Apache, and nearly all programs that come from a tar.gz, tar.bz2, etc issue the following commands within the directory created after untarring it....


./configure
make
make install

after make install, all of apache should be located in /usr/local/apache2

Let us know if this worked...
