Default Apache from source on SuSE 9

Hi

I have just installed Apache 2 on SuSE 9. Just need a bit of help on how to set up my runlevels.

Apache installed to /usr/local/apache/

How do I set things up so that apache starts automatically?
How do I set things up so that I don't have to type the whole path (/usr/local/apache/bin/....) to control apache2?

Sorry if these are basic questions. I have googled, but info is overwhelming and confusing.

Brenton

Do you have an init script for Apache in /etc/init.d (e.g. /etc/init.d/apache)? If not, create one (like this; you need to adjust the paths in it!):

Code:
#!/bin/sh
	  
case "$1" in
start)
  /usr/sbin/apachectl startssl
;;
stop)
  /usr/sbin/apachectl stop
;;
restart)
  $0 stop && sleep 3
  $0 start
;;
reload)
  $0 stop
  $0 start
;;
*)
echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart|reload}"
exit 1
esac
Then make it executable:
Code:
chmod 755 /etc/init.d/apache
The command
Code:
chkconfig --levels 235 apache on
will make your Apache start at boot time (in the run levels 2, 3, and 5).
