Hello group,

I'm using a machine that is not mine so I need to know:

1)  how can I find out where Apache is installed? is there any standard method?

I did:

$locate apache

but it wasn't helpful. Also, I have to change


2) when I'm trying to get to  http:/123.123.123.123/Dir1/Dir2/some.html

I get  ""Permission denied"  error.log, since the User in Apache setting file (/etc/httpd/conf) is:
User apahce
Group apache

What should I do? should I change the permission? or there is a work around?

Regards,
ak

Assuming it is running you could try ps ax | grep apache, which will list the running processes and should include their full path: -

~$ ps ax | grep apache
17527 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
17528 ?        S      0:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
17529 ?        Sl     0:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
17533 ?        Sl     0:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start

if it's not running and assuming you have root access or sudo:

find / -type f | grep -E 'apache|httpd' 2>/dev/null

That's right since they have changed it from apache to httpd so when I ran the ps command it didn't show apache process but when I use:
ps ax | grep httpd

it works fine. However, it is RIGHT.

Depending upon the distro used the package manage may be able to give you more info. For example, on a Debian based distro you could try: -

dpkg-query -l PACKAGE

to see if it's installed

dpkg-query -L PACKAGE

to list the package contents

On RedHat try: -

rpm -qa | grep PACKAGE

to see if it's installed

rpm -qil PACKAGE

to list the package contents

NB. Substitute PACKAGE for the name of the package you are looking for
