Hi, I have just installed an source installation of Apache2.2.3 on a fresh net install CD image Debian 3.1 distro on my PC (no web server, file server or mail server intalled at that time).

I downloaded to my {desktop}/rupert/local/ folder, unzipped, untarred and ran ./configure --enable-mods-shared-all and changed to my /rupert/local/httpd-2.2.3/ folder.
I ran make and then tried to run make install
I got permission denied messages.
Just for a laugh, I logged in as root and tried it again: Apache was installed to /usr/local/apache2/
Not to be silly, I logged in as a civillian again and [thru impatience and ignorance] I ignored httpd.conf and tried /usr/local/bin/apachectl start
I got permission denied messages again.
Logging in as root again, I found that running /usr/local/bin/apachectl start showed no error message - neither did /usr/local/bin/apachectl stop

Please help.  While I could strip everything naked with a bit of chmod-ery, still I'm wondering: what would be the best permissions setup for /usr/local/apache2/ downwards?
Would it be better to delete everything and install Apache somewhere else?
