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: http://apr.apache.org/

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.

HTH,
