Compiling httpd

The daemon files come in a tar file, which you should uncompress and unwrap. There are also binaries available for some architecures: if you have one, already, skip to installation.

In the WWW/Daemon/Implementation directory created are several subdirectories, for each machine architecture. Each has a Makefile. If your machine type (eg sun4, NeXT) is not there, copy one that is and its Makefile.

Edit the Makefile to set up particular paths you use on your system.

Type make httpd

Go on to install the deamon under the inetd or in /etc/rc to run continuously.
