Hi Follow the below procedures. How to install and start the Apache or httpd service under Linux
Q. How do I install and start the Apache or httpd web server under Fedora core or Cent OS?
A. Apache HTTP Server is a free software/open source web server for Unix-like systems and other oses.
Apache features configurable error messages, DBMS-based authentication databases, and content negotiation. It is also supported by several graphical user interfaces (GUIs) which permit easier, more intuitive configuration of the server.
Use rpm command to install Apache under Linux. You can also use up2date or yum command to install the same. Task: Install Apache/httpd under Fedroa Core/Cent OS Linux
Type the following command if you are using Fedora or Cent OS Linux:
# yum install httpd Now, start the Apache/httpd # chkconfig httpd on # /etc/init.d/httpd start Task: Install Apache/httpd under Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Type the following command # up2date httpd Start the Apache/httpd # chkconfig httpd on # /etc/init.d/httpd start Task: Debian Linux httpd/Apache installation
Use apt-get command: # apt-get install apache2 # /etc/init.d/apache2 start Task: Verify that port 80 is open
# netstat -tulpn | grep :80
You can also install httpd from CDROM with rpm command: # rpm -ivh httpd* Configuration
Your server is started but you need to configure and use Apache as per your requirement. /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf (RHEL/Cent OS/Fedora Core Linux) or /etc/apache2/httpd.conf (Debian / Ubuntu Linux) configuration file. Use text editor such as vi to edit file. This file is very well documented or read official Apache configuration documentation for more information.
Actually, Red Hat Linux is now only an Enterprise Level Operating system. Fedora on the other hand is sponsored by Red Hat and is much better suited for a personal computer. Just head over to fedoraproject.org and download the Fedora 10 ISO. Then burn it to a CD and reboot your computer. It should boot automatically into Fedora.
You need to create a space for which to install Linux. That likely means resizing Windows. Partition Magic is a good Windows utility to accomplish this, although there is a Linux version called Gaprtedthat will do essentially the same thing. You download the Gparted live cd, burn to disk, and run it from your computer. You must go into "setup" and set your Bios to boot from CDROM before booting the Hard Drive. Once booted, follow the on screen instructions. Resize Windows, (but NOT before a thorough defrag of your Windows drive), and create a "blank space" for Linux. Afterward, boot your Linux distro, (RedHat 9 was a great distro, but a newer version of a Red Hat based distro would serve you better, sayCentOS or Fedora Core), and follow the online instructions. Good Luck!
i think the cd from which you are installing might have got scratched so the cdrom couldnt read some files which are needed for installation ... so i suggest you to try changing cd.... there is no problem with installing in laptops we can install linux in any laptops...... i suggest you to install fedora core instead of redhat... fedora core has good functionality and it has inbuilt firewall security also for internet and it has got good options ... so try installing fedora core 5,6, or 7 .. if you dont have means you can download from net as linux is open source to all any1 can download from net ... there are many other linux available like ubuntu,suse, mandrake etc.... suse linux is also very good it is the very user friendly linux ... there other linux which can be run by cd only which doesnt need of installing it just like knoppix live cd etc.... be care ful while partitioning if you make mistake you will lose all datas ....
if you are installing red hat 8 and higher there is no need to install extra driver because linux is the only operating system which will install everything including drivers, office suite,programming tools etc .... as far as my suggestion dnt install old versions of linux instead install new version ... there are many linux available ex: fedora core 4,5,6 ,knoppix live cd linux ( which boots linux from cd no need install it) ,ubuntu,red hat,mandrake,suse .... you can download it from net 4 free as linux is open source 4 all ... be careful while installing linux especially during partitioning..... if u make a mistake you will lose all datas
