you'll need to compile it first - first run the 'configure' script which generates the makefiles, then run make, then 'make install' (if I remember rightly)

hi ahchong,
shivers is right.
What you may have downloaded is the tar or zip file with an extention of tar or tgz. you would then have to untar and unzip the file. use the following command :
1. tar -zxvf filename.tgz ( this will untar and unzip the file and you would have a directory by the name of apache_1.3.11. or tar -xvf filename.tar

2. move into this directory and you would then find a text file called README or something... Read this file and follow the instructions given there.


hope this gets you started. :) Andrew
