Have a look in the Gentoo Docs. Goto http://www.gentoo.org and follow the Docs link. There are a couple of guides there.

As far as I know the Gentoo install is the same as Apache themselves would do.

Gentoo specific
==========

/etc/conf.d/apache in which you turn on and off features with -D options. Look in /etc/apache2/modules.d files for what the -D options are and also the comments in the file.

/etc/make.conf to add/remove Apache modules:
Code:

APACHE2_MODULES="actions alias auth_basic auth_digest authn_anon authn_dbd \
                 authn_dbm authn_default authn_file authnz_ldap authz_dbm \
                 authz_default authz_groupfile authz_host authz_owner \
                 authz_user autoindex cache cgi cgid dav dav_fs dav_lock \
                 dbd deflate dir disk_cache env expires ext_filter file_cache \
                 filter headers ident imagemap include info ldap log_config \
                 logio mem_cache mime mime_magic negotiation proxy proxy_ajp \
                 proxy_balancer proxy_connect proxy_http rewrite setenvif so \
                 speling ssl status suexec unique_id userdir usertrack vhost_alias"


/etc/apache2 is where all the configuration is and /var/www/<hostname> is where the content is.

If you set USE=vhost then you can have /var/www/<vhost> and you have to use webapp-config to install/upgrade/delete webapps, otherwise everything ends up in /var/www/localhost.

Apart from the above I think you can use Apache's excellent docs to do the rest.

Cheers
Jon

You can take a look at http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Apache. This site is very simple, but there are some further links to more detailed docs.

@selberbauer
After setting up the basics, do not forget to check the upstream documentation. Apache's httpd is well documented and there are also good and helpful newsgroups.

@gerdes
Gentoo has many Manueals but i didnt found one for apache2

@forrestfunk81
the wiki says only how to emerge - so it tells the easiest to do

@charles
i looked threw it but there are some things missing

maybe it ist better when there is a working apache2 httpd.conf with good comments, the default .conf ist realy helpful

Best Regards
