I'm trying to install MySQL v 5, Apache 2.2.8 and Catacomb 0.9.6 on linux and I'm quite confused at how files are laid out in Debian, this being the first time I'm using it.

I have installed MySql Server/Client already.

I need to do a manual install of Apache 2.2.8.

tar -xvzf httpd-2.2.8.tar.gz cd httpd-2.2.8 ./configure --enable-so --enable-dav --enable-dav-fs --enable-dbd --with-mysql=

make make install


Many thanks

I'm trying to install on Debian 6 – Igi Manaloto Sep 21 '12 at 0:02

First, fix the make make install. Change it to. make & make install

You tell apache where to install the compiled apache package with this flag. That's the same flag used to tell MySQL and PHP where to be installed.


Here's another example. You tell PHP where to find apache executable with this flag. You can lookup the flag needed for a source compiled of MySQL.
