Hi Linux geeks,

I have just started to setup a production server with centos; and moved from
windows server to centos. My first encounter with this great linux distro is

I am not able to understand what is the point of having scattered folders
for apache server installation.

when i see the /etc/httpd folder; it has only conf folder and links to logs,
module and , run. As i have been working on Windows where all these files
are stored in a single installation folder.

So, this makes me quite confused to start with.

Can anyone tell me what is the idea behind using such a installation

Now i am going to install java, I have two options via RPM and other is
extracting the distro and use it. i have a feeling if i use first option,
all the folders like jre and jdk will be palced any where. Not to be found.

Please tell me or point to any relevant link. so i can go ahead without any
doubt over this issue.
