How to Manually install Apache

Apache can install manually with the help of following steps.

# cd /usr/local/src

# wget http://archive.apache.org/dist/httpd/httpd-2.2.15.tar.gz

# tar xvfz httpd-2.2.15.tar.gz

# cd httpd-2.2.15

# ./configure –prefix=/usr/local/apache2

# make

# make install

# cp /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl /etc/init.d/httpd

Now, Just you need to configure the apache modules which you want to install on the server.

# ./configure –with-layout=Apache –add-module=../mod_frontpage.c –enable-module=so –enable-module=ssl –enable-module=rewrite –enable-module=info –enable-module=expires –enable-module=headers –enable-module=proxy –enable-module=unique_id –enable-suexec –logfiledir=/usr/local/apache/logs –prefix=/usr/local/apache –suexec-caller=nobody –suexec-docroot=/ –suexec-gidmin=100 –suexec-logfile=/usr/local/apache/logs/suexec_log –suexec-uidmin=100 –suexec-userdir=public_html –sysconfdir=/usr/local/apache/conf
