Linux for Newbies, pt. 22: Installing Packages from Source
May 1, 2001, 06 :46 UTC (0 Talkback[s]) (1211 reads) (Other stories by Gene Wilburn)

"Let's visit Apache first. Before we get started we should give some thought to where we want Apache binaries and files to live. If your Linux server is an active webserver, you may prefer a directory such as /var/www or even /www for your Apache site. I personally like /usr/local, the traditional Unix place to put things that are "localized"--software that is not part of the base operating system. Hence I am going to use /usr/local/apache as my destination."

"... This was a very simple Apache and PHP installation, but once you've nailed down the basics, adding more modules or adjusting the options is just more of the same. On this system, Apache and PHP can now be easily updated whenever you want, and the files are located in your directory of choice. Moreover, you have the satisfaction of a job well done."
