    Or if you want to do it manually (as I do), just grab the Apache source from http://httpd.apache.org/ and compile it as per their instructions.

    The simplest, most basic way is simply to download the source, extract it, and type ./configure . To check out the options you can throw in there, just type ./configure --help .

    I would never suggest this to a new user... /scripts/easyapache is the best option as Chirpy said.

    Which is exactly why new users never learn to become anything more than novices.

    It's not a recommendation, just an answer to the question, "is there a way to build apache from ssh? instead of using whm to do it?"

    Well it is always good to go step by step and not try and take a long jump you would rather brake your leg....

    There is no harm in trying things out but not on the live server.. as it may cost you your earnings.

    Indeed. Building from source is fine if you already know what you're doing, however if you wish to get cPanel support for any apache issue that you have they most likely won't support you if you don't use the tools provided. So, recommended a manual build is not sensible at all in the context of help on these forums.
