Hey all

I uninstalled apache at one point and then reinstalled, one thing that im missing, is that when you goto Desktop, administration, server settings, you have NFS, Samb and Services, and I used to have HTTP.

Its disapeared and I used to use that for http configuration like virtual servers, how do I put this simple thing back in please?

Cheers

Copy /usr/bin/redhat-config-httpd to Desktop, administration, server settings
Rename redhat-config-httpd to HTTP and under HTTP properties change the icon of ur wish

That's it

Are you talking about accessing this through icons or through a menu system (Like the Windows Start menu)?

If you mean the menu system then it depends whether you're on Gnome or KDE.

If in KDE then you could for example run kmenuedit, then add system-config-httpd with the name 'HTTP' to the desired subcategory.

If in Gnome, I think you can go to Settings > Menu Editor (Within the menu itself).

Infact, for either GUI you can probably find the Menu Editor within the menu.

Just add the command to run as system-config-httpd - add the name as HTTP - then choose an appropriate icon.

Seems like it hasn't reinstalled properly.

I would recommend attempting a reinstall again.

yum remove apache
yum install apache

or possibly

yum update apache

Hmm that didnt work either, I tried the yum updater, remove/install.  I even done the add remove software thing, and problem still there, I just right click desktop, create new launcher and put system-config-httpd in as the command.

Nothing.

So is system-config-httpd actually on your machine after the fresh install of Apache?

try:

updatedb

locate system-config-httpd

Or just go in the console and type:

system-config-

then hit tab - see if it's on the list.

I still am not understanding this

you say type system-config-

It does nothing, and yes I did a fresh install of apache.

I did manage to locate system-config-httpd, and its location is here /etc/alchemist/namespace for what that means.

am I missing something?
