Subject Re: Compilation error with 2.0.35
Date Fri, 26 Apr 2002 21:29:48 GMT
Yes, I'm sorry, I wasn't specific enough.  I wasn't able to
compile.  Turned out to be a path problem.  For some reason,
the configure script doesn't error out when it can't find
required binaries for 'as', 'cpp', 'flex', and a couple of
others.  This is for apache 2.0.35 on Solaris8

I have some other questions.  Any help would be appreciated.


1) Where do you find out verbose descriptions of what all the
./configure options do?  For instance, I can't find a useful
description of --enable-cache anywhere (and I've looked).  The
one-line description you get with ./configure --help doesn't
quite do it for me.
2) It seems there are some comments missing out of the default
ssl.conf which is built with apache 2.0.35.  Specifically, this
is an exact copy of the lines from my ssl.conf after build.
# When we also provide SSL we have to listen to the 
# standard HTTP port (see above) and to the HTTPS port
Listen 443

# Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) Support
# To be able to use the functionality of a module which was built as a DSO you
#    ErrorLog logs/
#    CustomLog logs/ common

You'll notice the line above "ErrorLog logs/"
looks like there should be some more information, which is missing.
Where can I find those missing lines?  =)  I searched and found
only this, which has no useful information

3) Last, and most important, I cannot get httpd to run after
compilation.  It looks to me like I need to link my libraries in
but want to be sure.

My config options:
./configure \
        --prefix=/usr/local/apache2 \
        --enable-ssl \
        --with-mpm=worker \
        --with-perl=/sw/pd/perl/5.6.1/bin/perl \
        --enable-cgi \
        --with-ssl=/opt/openssl \
        --enable-mods-shared=all \
        --enable-static-logresolve \
OS and other versions:
