Question Starting Apache

I successfully installed Apache, but When I tried to start it I experienced problems.

After installing and compiling, I typed the PREFIX "usr/local/
apache/bin/apachect1 start." The output was path not found.

After checking the apachect1 file using vi, I found the file empty.
There was no script.

Is there another way to start Apache, or do I have to write a

How can I do this?

Another way to start apache is to run the httpd script

cd /usr/local/apache/bin
then issue ./httpd

if apache fails to start check apache's error log
and post back

I believe it's an abreviation for "apache control"
