Question Slackware and Apache

Well as usual I seem to be having a problem that is probably a very easy fix and Im just missing the answer. I have downloaded the new Apache, read the instructions and installed it. The problem is no matter what I do it seems that the old apache is still running insted of the new one I have installed. Any help will be greatly appreciated, please keep in mind I am still very new to linux.

If you didn't get a Slack pakage to install, then it is probably the default build options have installed it some place other than what Slack is setup for. You will need to change the build options to match the Slack system or change the Slack system to match the Apache defaults.

The easiest way I know of to determine the requirements is to look in the source/apache tree for your distribution.

If you are starting apache by hand, by typing "apachectl start" or something like that, and you are always getting the old apache, then you can work around it by typing the full path. The Slackware apachectl is /usr/sbin/apachectl. Yours may be /usr/local/bin/apachectl or something like that, depending on where it got installed. Try typing the whole path to your version, like "/usr/local/bin/apachectl start".

If you are starting apache automatically when you boot the machine, then you need to edit a file named "/etc/rc.d/rc.httpd"

(Of course, you should stop the old version "apachectl stop" before you try to run your new version)
