In this first article in a three-part series, Harish Kamath helps you download and configure the Apache Web server. If you’ve wanted to use PHP with Apache, that part of the setup is also covered. The article guides right from how to get off the locks, to compiling apache, discussing various configuration options, a quick overview of the httpd.conf file, and getting PHP 5.0.3 to work with Apache 2.0.51. This article is a good read for anyone looking at getting started with PHP 5 and Apache 2.
