I'm trying to do this

But the yum -y install httpd httpd-devel gives -bash: yum: command not found.

I'm on 12.04.

I already have apache installed. I just don't know how to get the "development tools".

Please show me how. Many thanks in advance!

@vasa1 Thanks for looking! i'm using ubuntu 12.04. the only article i can find that talks about apache & hiphop running side by side is in the link i provided. the command comes from that article. I just want to make this work but this question seems to be the first step – user128334 Feb 18 '13 at 5:40

sudo apt-get install apache2-dev command will install dev packages.

Please note that the yum is a package manager for RedHat, Fedora etc.
Equivalent package manager for Ubuntu/Debian is an APT.
Look about apt-get command here: Package Management
