Subject [users@httpd] Building Apache 2.2.14 with mod_fastcgi 2.4.6 on OS X 10.5.8
Date Sun, 18 Oct 2009 20:26:35 GMT

I'm trying to build Apache httpd 2.2.14 with mod_fastcgi 2.4.6 on OS X
10.5.8. I can build and install httpd seemingly fine but I can't seem
to build mod_fastcgi successfully with httpd even though I've tried a
variety of ways. I did try joining the fastcgi mailing list and
sending this message there. Although I received confirmation that I am
a member of that list it appears I am not. I'm hopeful someone here
will be able to help.

Looking at the mod_fastcgi INSTALL notes, I've tried the APACI
(autoconf) method. I think those notes are out-of-date and don't work
with the newest httpd. The notes talk about --activate-module which is
not a configure option for httpd. The notes also talk about a
directory <apache_dir>/src/modules which doesn't exist in the Apache
httpd source distribution.

Below is what I thought would be my best attempt

   rm -rf ~/tmp ~/myapache
   mkdir ~/tmp
   cd ~/tmp

   cp ~/Desktop/downloaded-src/httpd-2.2.14.tar.gz ~/tmp
   tar xvzf httpd-2.2.14.tar.gz

   cp ~/Desktop/downloaded-src/mod_fastcgi-2.4.6.tar.gz ~/tmp
   tar xvzf mod_fastcgi-2.4.6.tar.gz

   mv ~/tmp/mod_fastcgi-2.4.6 ~/tmp/httpd-2.2.14/modules/fastcgi

   cd ~/tmp/httpd-2.2.14

   ./configure --prefix=${HOME}/myapache \
               --enable-module=fastcgi \

   make install

After the above is complete, I don't see any build output indicating
fastcgi was built. I also don't see in

The Apache httpd server does work. I can start it as a non-root user
listening to port 3000, stop it, view static pages and it will run
plain cgi-bin scripts.

Any ideas how I can successfully build Apache httpd with mod_fastcgi on OS X?
