    Question installing 2nd httpd

    Hi all, i have a dedicated server w/ cpanel/whm that has all the defaults installed (httpd, php, mysql, exim, etc) on Fedora core 1.

    What i would like to do is install a second httpd daemon so it can use it's own httpd.conf to serve only images.

    The current httpd is installed at /usr/local/apache/

    I want to do this but am afraid of overwriting any current configs and/or files. How will this 2nd httpd effect cpanel, if at all?

    Can anyone guide me through this simple task?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can install apache to anywhere you want, just configure apache with command "./configure --prefix=<install_dir> ...", then "make install", cpanel should not be affected.

    Apache is not the best choice for serving images, there are plenty light weight web servers which can do much better job.
