RedHat Apache httpd configuration - Issues with APR

Hi

I have tried setting up of Apache http server - httpd-2.4.25.

During configuration, I understand it needs APR to be setup. Hence I have downloaded APR & APR-Util.

Performed,
Code:
tar xvfC apr-1.5.2.tar /root/httpd-2.4.25/srclib/apr

What is happening is there is another directory 'apr-1.5.2' getting created under '/root/httpd-2.4.25/srclib/apr'

Documentation of Apr says you must not have version numbers. APR distribution must be placed under, './srclib/apr'

Point is how could I get rid of '-1.5.2' from the folder name of APR so, I could have ./configure script could be executed semalessly ?

I don't know this special case, but extracting a tar-ball archive will usually have a version number in it's path/directory name and this is good.
What you refer to is that when it is finally installed, after something like
Code:
./configure
make
make install

it should not contain version numbers in the path. From the most software I have configured and installed this way, they were not using a version number neither in the path nor in the final binary.

I suggest you either try this on a test box and check if after the make install there is anything not ok with version names showing up somewhere OR you type ./configure --help and see if there is some --prefix=<somedestinationpathyouspecify> you can use to tell it at which destination it should be installed.
