27.5 Setting up your Server

27.5.1 Compilation of the programs

To compile the http daemon, httpd, first go to the src subdirectory (cd src) and type "./Configure" and respond to any questions, then type "make". It will default to using the Makefile in that directory. Then build any support files needed in the support directory (cd ../support) after editing the Makefile to select the desired compiler and programs. Then install the necessary programs in their desired directories. The full list of steps can be found at: ftp://wks.uts.ohio-state.edu/pub/src/UTSinfo_apache-httpd-1.0.3, along with the source and compiled binaries in the file apache_1.0.3.tar.gz in the same directory.

WWW will support applications other than just display. There are a few sample auxiliary programs you can compile in the cgi-src directory and install in the cgi-bin directory, which already contains a few sample shell scripts. If you're not going to support these services than you can ignore this step.
