1) I downloaded apache from

http://www.apache.org/dist/apache_1.3.12.tar.gz

2) opened a terminal window and switched to root.

3) changed directory into the downloaded and uncompressed apache directory

4) tried to execute


./configure --prefix=/www

5) fails every time telling me

./configure: Command not found.

6) when I execute ls -lF the directory does contain the configure comand

Why is everyone trying to download apache, what is wrong with the version that came with OSX. Did someone find a serios bug or something :eek:

I deleted part of my apache, so i will have to download it. No time now, i'll do it later.
But why everyone else?
