OT: Any Apache users out there?

I've got a quick question for you guys. Someone here has to administer a linux bases apache server. On a new linux 6.2 install (server), what would I have to do to activate the browser based management of the server? Is there a standard port that I need to access using a browser with an ip address:port combo, or is it more detailed.

Thanks guys,

Didn't know that someone had written a browser-based system for configuring apache, tho it would be possible I guess. Anyway, all you have to do is edit the files in the conf directory. I think Redhat bundles a tool called apacheconf(1) now that will generate a httpd.conf for you, and it's X+wish based.
Actually Lawrence, I wasn't sure if there was one or not, but I just assumed there was because all other platforms that i've used (Novell, NT) all had a similar utility. Oh, and I forgot to mention that this was RedHat linux.
I just realized that I think I misunderstood your question :p Were you asking if it is possible to configure RedHat Linux itself with a browser from elsewhere? If that was your question, then yes, all you have to do is enable remote configuration on the Linux machine using can put hostnames or networks into the ACL. Then, from elsewhere, hit the Linux machine on TCP port 98. You'll need the root password, of course.

From there there should be some way to configure apache if you feel like it...I guess. Never tried it myself.
Thanks Lawrence, that's exactly what I was looking for. I guess I didn't phrase my question too well.
