httpd installation upgrade tips

February 17th, 2012 Comments off

1.different files after configure, make, make install

Firstly, read the following link to get the elementary knowledge about configure/make/make install

Here's the comparison after/before running configure:

Here's the comparison after/before running make:

[root@test ~]# diff configure.after configure.before
< Makefile
< config.log
< config.nice
< config.status
< modules.c

This means after configure, 5 files, i.e. Makefile, config.log, config.nice, config.status were generated.

[root@test ~]# diff make.after configure.after
< buildmark.o
< httpd
< modules.lo
< modules.o

This means buildmark.o, httpd, modules.lo, modules.o were generated after make command.


2.config.nice(with --prefix option to put the new one to some other place)

If you installed httpd by compiling source package(i.e. through downloading/unpack/configure/make/make install), and you haven't remove the source package(especially config.nice file under the unpacked source package), then you'll have the magic when you want to upgrade httpd. Using config.nice!

Read this article to easily upgrade httpd with all your selected options before.
