I am using this..

$ curl -O

$ tar xvfz httpd-2.2.4.tar.gz

$ cd httpd-2.2.4

# ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache2/ --enable-module=most --enable-shared=max

# make

# make install
It downloads the file and extracts it into a folder called httpd-2.2.4. The terminal then goes uses the cd command. This is where it all falls apart. The ./configure command doesn't rename the file folder, nor does it move it into the root/usr/local/ folder.

Is this command correct? What am i doing wrong?

EDIT: My Terminal has the following.. jason-stanleys-computer:~/httpd-2.2.4 jasonstanley$

My name being jason stanley. Should it have the jasonstanley after the folder?
QUOTE Thanks

After 2 hours and much Googling worked out it was because I don't have the development tools duh, thanks for looking anyway.

Thanks for posting the solution. This will help others wondering about the same thing you did. Hope you find the right development tools!

Did you need Xcode tools? I have no idea how to install Apache on a mac... *blush*
