I'm following these set of instructions from this link here: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/install.html (and following instructions from a guide book as well- which isn't going too well)
I got the APR/APR util properly done; based off the book it uses
gunzip -c httpd___.tar.gz | tar -xf -
I extracted these files but wasn't sure how to unpack it into "/httpd_source_tree_root/srclib/apr and /httpd_source_tree_root/srclib/apr-util "
Am I supposed to do :
gunzip -c httpd___.tar.gz | tar -xf - C/home/Downloads/httpd_source__xxxxx ?
Tried playing around with the terminal but couldn't get it to work, so I extracted it using the default method from above, and copied/pasted it into /srclib/apr and scrclib/apr-util.
This brings me to the configure step. I've been looking around on stack exchange but couldn't find a solution right for me. ( https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10663180/http-install-error-in-libpcre)
I downloaded the PCRE, extracted it. And now here comes the part where I am completely lost and would appreciate any help/directions/or answers. What I tried so far
1) I copied/pasted the extracted PCRE into the /srclib as pcre. From the terminal, I cd'd my way into the httpd directory and tried this
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/pcre make make install
which gave me an error
/bin/mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/local/pcre': Permission denied make: *** [install-libLTLIBRARIES] Error 1
I tried other multiple ways but kept getting the same PCRE error.
What am I doing wrong?
