Subject [users@httpd] 2.3.15-beta: module proxy_balancer requires the not automatically loaded module slotmem_shm
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2011 15:25:38 GMT

sorry if I report a small problem to this list although 2.3.15 seems still 
"beta" and I am not sure if it's not a "personal" problem:

I just downloaded and extracted the source packages 
httpd-2.3.15-beta.tar.bz2 and httpd-2.3.15-beta-deps.tar.bz2 and issued
in the httpd-2.3.15-beta directory

  ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/www/httpd2.3.15-beta --enable-so \
   --disable-ldap --with-included-apr --with-pcre=/usr/local/soft \
   --enable-mods-shared="most cache mem-cache mime-magic proxy ssl unique_id"

and then a "make" and "make install" and tried to start the server
but without success. In the error_log I found

  [Wed Nov 09 16:19:47.001264 2011] [proxy_balancer:emerg] [pid 5581:tid 3076073744]
    ap_lookup_provider slotmem failed: is mod_slotmem_shm loaded??
   Configuration Failed

Ok, so I simply removed in the installed default httpd.conf the comment 
sign within the line

  #LoadModule slotmem_shm_module modules/

and as expected now all works.

But if the used options above are valid ones so the according automatically 
generated httpd.conf seems not correct per se (I didn't tested yet other 
combinations of options in combination with the option "proxy").
Is that "normal" or an error of the configuration process (or of the 
choosen configuration options)?
