Building and Installing Apache 2.0 Page 2
To use Rsync, type:
user@host> rsync -avz dev.apache.org::apache-2.0-cvs
To use CVS, type:
user@host> cvs login (password is anoncvs)
user@host> cvs checkout apache-2.0
I have tried to use Rsync, but I was unable to make it work. I will try to figure out what is wrong with Rsync before this article is released, but I suggest using CVS if Rsync doesn't work immediately. The complete instructions for extracting Apache in either of these two methods can be found at http://dev.apache.org/anoncvs.txt.
Each of these methods for getting the source code has advantages and disadvantages. The first method, getting the package that the Apache Group created, is the package that is most likely to compile and produce working code quickly. When the Apache Group releases an alpha, we try very hard to ensure that the package is working and is stable on most platforms. However, this is still an alpha so it is not intended to be used as a production server. This package is also likely to be out of date. Apache 2.0 development is progressing very quickly, even if you download the package the day after the alpha is released, there are likely to be one or two bug fixes or enhancements in the most recent code. The second method, the packages created every six hours, will always be more up-to-date than the official alpha releases. However, this code is extracted out of CVS, it is not tested at all to ensure that the code is stable or even working. The advantage to this method, is that no other tool is required to get the code. Finally, CVS and Rsync offer the most up-to-date code. However, again this code is unlikely to work.
Which method you choose to get the source code will depend on why you are getting it. If you are a developer who wishes to help move Apache 2.0 along, or who wishes to write or port a module to 2.0, then using either CVS, Rsync, or the packaged cvs tree will provide you with the code most like what will become the Apache 2.0 release. If you are just interested in playing with Apache 2.0, and don't need the most up-to-date code, then the alpha packages will provide the most stable code.
Configuring the Source Tree
Once you have downloaded the Apache 2.0 tree, the next step is to configure
it so that you can build Apache 2.0. This is a two step process. The first step
creates the configure script from the Autoconf source files. The second step
actually configures the source tree. For the rest of this article , we will
assume the source tree has been extracted to
