SUMMARY Q: install apache 2.0.46 on SPARC solaris 9?

The fix is pretty straightforward.  In the httpd.conf, change "Group #-1" to
"Group nobody".  Before I executed "apachectl start", I also installed
libiconv-1.8.  Not sure if apache 2.0.46 needs it or not though.  Now apache
2.0.46 runs fine and dandy.  One hint to newbies like me is that error logs
provide useful information from which we can usually figure out the problem.

The /usr/apache is to access the machine to use SCM through the web.

=============Original message==================
I am having some problems installing apache 2.0.46 on a freshly installed
solaris 9 on a SunBlade 100.

First I installed apache 1.3.27 and openssl-0.96i using pkgadd.  After I edited
httpd.conf, apache runs well.

Now I need to use apache 2.0.46.  Below is what I did:
1. download the source code
2. ./configure --enable-so --enable-ssl --enable-mods-shared=all
3. ./make
4. ./make install
# to stop apache 1.3.27
5. /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl stop
# to remove openssl-0.96i because apache 2.0.46 needs openssl-0.9.7.b
6. pkgrm SMCossl	
7. pkgadd -d ./openssl-0.9.7b-sol9-sparc-local
8. edit httpd.conf.  Everything has been left pretty much default except:
   8.1) Listen 80
   8.2) ServerName newname:80
9. /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start

Nothing happens after step 9.  The installation process seems straightforward. 
Did I mess up somewhere?  By the way, what's the use of the directory
"/usr/apache" coming with solaris 9?
