Subject [users@httpd] Query regarding dynamic server build, .so files and LoadModule
Date Thu, 23 Sep 2004 10:18:48 GMT
First of all, I've inherited a Red Hat 8 server with an Apache 2.0.40 build
on it and I noticed that in the httpd.conf file there was lots of LoadModule
entries in like:

LoadModule access_module modules/
LoadModule auth_module modules/
LoadModule auth_anon_module modules/
LoadModule auth_dbm_module modules/
LoadModule auth_digest_module modules/
LoadModule include_module modules/
LoadModule log_config_module modules/
LoadModule env_module modules/
LoadModule mime_magic_module modules/
LoadModule cern_meta_module modules/
LoadModule expires_module modules/
LoadModule headers_module modules/
LoadModule usertrack_module modules/
LoadModule unique_id_module modules/
LoadModule setenvif_module modules/

and in /usr/lib/httpd/modules there is there is the .so files.

I'm now building Apache 2.0.51 from scratch as I want ssl and mod_jk (to
connect to Tomcat) and I've built Apache using:

./configure --enable-ssl --with-ssl=/usr/local/ssl

and I'm not getting any LoadModule entries at all in my /etc/httpd.conf and
I'm not getting any .so files generated.

Is this because I'm building it as a static server instead of a dynamic
server?  How do you get the .so files?

I tried to use the --enable-mods-shared=all option with configure to try and
get a dynamic Apache web server but it seems to crash my server for some

I'm wondering whether I've built Apache correctly to use my file.

Any thoughts would be appreciated as I've never done this before and don't
know what to expect.
