I need to install Apache webserver for Ångström (Angstrom) Linux. Is there a separate distro I need? Where would I get that? Can I install normal apache distro into Ångström Linux? Any help in this regard is welcome.

armstrong? Ångström? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Mar 17 '11 at 5:43

According to the Angstrom Package browser, There is a version of apache2 for this distribution.

So I assume you can use the Angstrom distro's package manager, which from my limited googling appears to be opkg.

At a wild guess, try opkg install apache2, and see what happens?

A better answer than the question deserved. – Chopper3 Mar 17 '11 at 14:33
The link to the angstrom package browser is dead. – JYelton Dec 1 '13 at 23:10
