    I installed apache1.3.6 from the RedHat6.0 rpm's . There were three files present on my RH CD.
    /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/apache-1.3.6-7.i386.rpm
    /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/apache-devel-1.3.6-7.i386.rpm
    /mnt/cdrom/SRPMS/apache-1.3.6-7.src.rpm

    I installed the first two only.
    just to check whether its installed or not i put a query, rpm -q apache, and it showed me the name and the version indicating that its been installed. Since i am a complete newbie on apache, i did a little bit of research and checking isto what are the files that could be related to apache. I found these, some from man's and some the files itself.
    apxs
    httpd
    inetd
    apachectl

    All files except the last one seems to be installed, i guess thats the one controling apache, the apache front-end tool. it doesnt seem 2 be installed. a did a find also just to cross-check again, but its not there, only its manuals exist.
    any idea what is really needed to get that file up and my Apache running??

    Hey Duke,
    Aside from the fact that you'll probably want to get the newest Apache, apachectl is usually in the <apache-install-directory>/bin directory. I think it also depends on whether you've done a binary install (which it sounds like you have) or compiled your own. Either way I think I would get the latest apache for you platform from apache.org (binary is the easiest to install). This will probably solve your problem.

    Yes, get apache_1.3.12.tar.gz.
    'apachectl' is just a script and not so important. You can simply copy someone else's apachectl and place it to your box.
    ###################################
    tar -zxvf apache_1.3.12.tar.gz
    cd apache_1.3.12
    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache --datadir=/home/httpd --logfiledir=/var/log/httpd --enable-module=most --enable-shared=max --disable-rule=WANTHSREGEX
    then..
    make
    make install

    Or you may edit the config.layout file directly.
