what is apr? Do I need apache?
« on: February 17, 2008, 07:06:22 pm »
I have VL5.9 and when I search gslapt for apache I get apr.

Here is some terse info on it:

Is this a minimalist httpd or some interface to a non-existent apache?

Do I just install httpd-2.2.8 for a web server and ignore this?

apr is the Apache Runtime. It's a dependency for the subversion command-line client. The only time you'll need apr is if you plan on checking out source code from subversion repositories.

VL 6.0 SOHO latest alpha on one box, VL 5.9 Lite on the other.
