Subject [users@httpd] mod_rewrite.a and instead of .so
Date Wed, 08 Nov 2006 07:37:53 GMT

I'm working on Mac OS X 10.4.8 (Intel), and have little experience with

I have two questions :

1) When installing Apache 2.2.3 from source I run these commands in
Terminal :

$ sudo ./configure" \
>--prefix=/apache_test \
>--enable-modules=most \
>--enable-mods-shared=all \
>--enable-modules=so \

$sudo make

$sudo make install

When I check the modules-directory I find all modules as files with the
".so"-extension, except for mod_rewrite. There are two files :
mod_rewrite.a and

What is the cause and how can I solve this ?

2) I have a working Apache-installation and want to add the
rewrite-modules. How is an update done ?

Thank you for any help

With kind regards
