Getting Apache to start automatically (on Linux)?

Recommended Posts

I finally was able to configure Apache on my Red Hat 8.0 box, but now I have a slight problem... I\'m trying to set it to automatically start up, so I don\'t have to type


/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start


every time I want to have it run (I\'m using this machine as a development workstation for PHP/MySQL).


httpd doesn\'t appear in the Services menu (GNOME Menu > Server Settings > Services), and when I type a command such as this:


chkconfig --level 345 httpd on


it returns the following error:


error reading information on service httpd:  no such file or directory


Obviously this is because it\'s not installed as a service... is there anyway I can go and install it as one?
