Subject [users@httpd] Using mod_deflate (2.0.54) with Apache 2.0.49
Date Fri, 09 Sep 2005 12:20:55 GMT
I have a 2.0.49 Apache provided to me with a vendor install. This is
put in 7 boxes spanning development QA and production. However, these
installs are missing mod_deflate. This is preventing me from enabling
HTTP compression. I was looking for the quickest way of doing this:
1. Take the latest 2.0.54 source, make it on each of the machines, and install
2. Same as above, except that make on one machine, anc copy the
installed version of one machine on all others (the install directory
is exactly the same in all machines)
3. Compile 2.0.54, and just take the file and put it in
the modules directory of the existing installation

I am hesitant of recompiling 2.0.49 from source as I have read on the
net that mod_deflate of that particular version had issues.

>From my perspective, option 3 is the easiest to perform. I would like
opinion of peple on this list as to if this is recommended, or any
other options.

Some other notes:
(A quick google did not yield anything or any one's experiences
attempting to do this. Also, I  find it difficult to compile on all
machines because only the dev achine has gcc tools installed.
Organization's policy does not install dev tools on QA and production
boxes. A quick look at ldd for httd shows for 2.0.54 shows me it
depends on for something. So i would have to install this
on all boxes which would amount to install gcc on all boxes.

Env: SunOs 2.9 v490 UltraSparc)
