hi

i'm using apache as a web server in solaris. every time i reboot the server, i have to start the apache web server manually via a executable file which is located at /opt/apache/bin/httpd.

so, what command should i add to the profile file so when i reboot the server, the apache web server will start automatically.

thanks n best regards

and reboot ur machine.

Give the exact location of ur apache where it is installed
to HTTPDHOME.  if it is not /usr/local/apache.
