Subject [users@httpd] specifying module execution order
Date Mon, 23 May 2005 13:19:16 GMT
I was wondering whether there was a way to specify module execution order 
of modules.

Concretely, my problem is that mod-ssl's fixup handler (that executes in 
HOOK_MIDDLE) defines some environment variable that I would like to access 
in my mod-python fixup handler that executes in HOOK_MIDDLE (like all 
mod-python fixup handlers).   Is there any way of controlling that 
mod-ssl's handler runs before that of mod-python (short of patching either 

Somehow, I think that should be a common problem--but searching the web I 
couldn't find anything.

many thanks in advance for any help.


PS.  I was wondering whether the module load order affected the execution 
order.  I run Apache2 on Debian that specifies the modules to load as sym 
links from mods-enabled to mods-available.  Would anyone know how to 
specify the load order of modules the Debian way?  Maybe prefixing the 
sym-link names with numbers (like in /etc/init.d)?
