      If you haven't already, I would recommend getting a book on unix
      since the kinds of things that we are discussing are specific
      to that platform and have little to do with running Apache::ASP.
      The Apache::ASP mailing list is for support of running Apache::ASP,
      but this assumes that you already know how to work with the
      platform that you are on.

      Once a program is correctly installed in a place like /usr/local/apache,
      I cannot imagine what mechanism would prevent it from working later
      if it worked before. Subtle things like which user ( root or non-root )
      you are running as can make a big difference though, as well
      as whether there is an instance of httpd already running, bound
      to port 80.

      . represents the current working directory, so if you
      cd /usr/local/apache/bin, then . = /usr/local/apache/bin
      and if you run "./httpd" you will really be running

      Right, static build is no "USE_DSO=1"
