I have installed Linux Centos, when I went to services I noticed tha there is no httpd service, which I think it' s required to set up Apache server.

How can I get this service running?

Thanks

The httpd daemon is not required for setting up Apache, it _is_ Apache. If you haven't yet set up Apache, it cannot be there.

Try this in a terminal as root:

service httpd start

or this:

/etc/init.d/httpd start


If this fails with error messages or unrecognized commands, you need to install Apache to start with. Go:

yum install httpd

then run the above "service httpd start" command.

Here's a small minimalist guide on what you have to set up and configure in order  to run Apache successfully:

I can't remember CentOS right now, but some distros name it "apache" or "apache2" rather than httpd.  Is that running?  If that's not it, try following something like the above or this:

You can use the installation DVD and find the correct RPM to install HTTP.

Hi

If httpd is not in the chkconfig --list  then you need to install it.

Best way to do that is to do yum install httpd

You can also do a search for additional packages with yum search httpd

This is the recommended way from the cli as when you do a system update you do yum update which will then update packages in the correct manner.
