Aha, I'm glad it is possible, but this is what I don't know. How to build 
the modules if Apache is already installed, if they are not built in, and 
not installed as shared?
I have read the description pages for some Apache modules on Apache's site, 
but I didn't found details about installing them if the server is already 

So I think that if I will need to install some new modules, I might need to 
re-build Apache entirely with all all the modules that I need, including the 
old ones. This would not be very nice, but... is it true?

Or there is a way of just building and adding the new modules I need, just 
like I do with mod_perl for example?
