I'm using RedHat and it has Apache come pre-installed. However, I uninstalled the Apache from the system because I don't like the way RedHat put the files around.

I downloaded apache1.3.20 from apache.org
follow the documentation
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/install.html
and
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/invoking.html

I have placed apache on /usr/local/apache

I tried starting apache as root and invoking
it using "./httpd" when in the /usr/local/apache/bin
directory.

however, when I do "ps -ef | grep httpd",
I couldn't see any httpd process running.
Nor did I get any error message when starting httpd.

What happens when you do; /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart

Check out the log files in /var/log/ to see if there is anything in there.

Is your http configuration file OK?

/usr/local/apache/logs/error_log

it shows the following error:
