    Help,

    I bought RedHat Linux 7.2 but after numerous installs I can't seem to find out how to install or where the option to install Apache is. From what I understand the Apache web server is supposed to come with redhat.

    Any ideas?

    thanks,

    Jeff

    It might be on already. Did you try hitting your server machine with a browser? (Or on the same machine, http://127.0.0.1/)
    Did you do a "server install", which will normally include a web/HTTP server? That server should be Apache. You can also include that module manually during a custom install. When you do a custom install, they list all the modules you can include (and there are a lot of them). Work through the list and make sure web/HTTP server is selected.

    As Ken said, if you selected the WWW Server package during install it will be there. If you select packages individually, often times it goes as httpd rather than Apache.
    If it's installed and just not running, try
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/httpd start
    as root and see if it'll start.
    If you're new to the whole Linux server thing, Webmin (http://www.webmin.com) is a very handy program to have as a backup and it's also a good learning tool - I've actually learned to do certain things without it only because of it.

    Got it! I select the custom install and picked the Web server option. This whole Linux thing is a completely new world to me. Just trying to find my away around is a challenge.
