Hi, this is Charlie, I am a student who needs to complete a project  by
combining PHP, MySQL, and R together. Actually, I am really beginner with R
and I am sorry for unclear posting while there was chaos in my mind. 

Now I will make my question clear. In order to install the package from
source, I follows the process from Rtools (http://www.murdoch- 
sutherland.com/Rtools/) and installs all necessary softwares (Rtools, Perl,
fpTex, the HTML Help Workshop, Inno Setup installer). Althouhg I just want
to install the RApache package, but I still decide to have them all.

Then I copy the file "rapache-0.1.4.tar.gz" to the bin under r-2.4.1 and
type command "Rcmd install rapache-0.1.4.tar.gz". However, it shows me a
message - "open(R.INSTALL/rapache-0.1.4/DESCRIPTION): No such file or

I have found the description file is under folder of RApache and is
different from other packages while the file is not under aother folder.
Therefore, I move it out from the folder of RApache, compress it as .zip,
and install it through R. Finally, I can find it in my library list but it
does not work. I am wondering if there is any mistake with the process.
Thank you for your helping.
