Subject RE: mod_jk on freebsd 4.6 with apache 2
Date Wed, 21 Aug 2002 18:03:11 GMT

The connectors are all, as far as I know, separate projects.  That is, the
AJP team is different from the WARP team, which are both different from the
tomcat team and the apache team.  You're welcome to help out if you'd like
to see things moved along.  I would if I could.

That said, and I don't mean to be snide, but building the connectors is
actually quite easy.  I would rate it as easy as building apache from
source, which is pretty easy for most configurations.  In the last week
alone, the mesasges that have been related to "I can't get apache to work
with tomcat" have all pretty much been system related.  That is, there isn't
anything wrong with the tools or the software, but due to things like
different versions of libraries, different versions of apxs, etc., builds
from source fail for one reason or another.  I think this is to be expected,
given the vast number of variables and possible permutations of each on any
given operating system.

The error message you got said to run "ltconfig --help".  Did you do that?
Seems to me that it would be a pretty easy fix, looks like there's a missing
parameter to ltconfig when called from configure.

Subject: mod_jk on freebsd 4.6 with apache 2

I have been at this for what seems like weeks.

Here is what I have so far, I downloaded the connectors from

I installed autoconf, libtool and automake so that I can run the without getting any errors. That works fine but when I run
the configure here is the output, as you can see at the bottom there is
an error.

On another note, why is this so hard? makes apache and tomcat
but they cant make a connector for them for more then one platform and
from my reading that seems to be a pain to install as well. I though
about moving to redhat but why, same problems...

I have to use freebsd so there is no reason to point out the advantages
of a linux install of apache/mod_jk/tomcat.

Anyone have an update on the mod_jk port for freebsd?
