Date Sat, 04 Apr 1998 18:02:47 GMT
rse         98/04/04 10:02:46

  Modified:    .        INSTALL
  Log:
  Make sure the user informed about DSO support even if he uses APACI and not
  reading src/Configuration.tmpl He has to notice that the nice --enable-shared
  option is only available if his platform really supports DSO.

        The following requirements exist for building Apache:
   
        o  Disk Space:

           Make sure you have approximately 12 MB of temporary free disk space
           available.  After installation Apache occupies approximately 3 MB of
           disk space (the actual required disk space depends on the amount of
           compiled in third party modules, etc).
   
        o  ANSI-C Compiler: 
  +
           Make sure you have an ANSI-C compiler installed. The GNU C compiler
           (GCC) from the Free Software Foundation (FSF) is recommended.  If you
           don't have GCC then at least make sure your vendors compiler is ANSI

  -     o  Perl 5 Interpreter (OPTIONAL):
  -        For some of the support scripts like `apachectl' (which are written in

  -        build and install Apache 1.3. Only those support scripts cannot be
  -        used. If you have multiple Perl interpreters installed (perhaps a Perl

  +        For some of the support scripts like `apxs' or `dbmmanage' (which are
  +        written in Perl) the Perl 5 interpreter is required. If no such
  +        interpreter is found by APACI's `configure' script this is no harm.

  +
  +     o  Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) support [OPTIONAL]:
  +
  +        To provide maximum flexibility Apache now is able to load modules
  +        under runtime via the DSO mechanism by using the pragmatic
  +        dlopen()/dlsym() system calls. These system calls are not available
  +        under all operating systems therefore you cannot use the DSO mechanism
  +        on all platforms. And Apache currently has only limited built-in
  +        knowledge on how to compile shared objects because this is heavily
  +        platform-dependend. The current state is this:
  +
  +        o Out-of-the-box supported platforms are:
  +           - Linux     - IRIX    
  +           - FreeBSD   - OSF1    
  +           - Solaris   - UnixWare
  +           - SunOS
  +
  +        o Entirely unsupported platforms are:
  +           - HP-UX  (because no dlopen-style interface)
  +           - Ultrix (because no dlopen-style interface)
  +           - AIX    (although it has dlopen it is a braindead one)
  +
  +        If your system is not on these lists but has the dlopen-style
  +        interface, you either have to provide the appropriate compiler and
  +        linker flags (see CFLAGS_SHLIB, LDFLAGS_SHLIB and LDFLAGS_SHLIB_EXPORT
  +        below) manually or at least make sure a Perl 5 interpreter is
  +        installed from which Apache can guess the options.
