Subject RE: Need help building connectors for Apache 2.0.40 and Tomcat 4. 0.6 on RedHat 8.0

I'm not sure what is included in the Apache RPM, but you will probably need
the following:

- Connector source, preferably for JK (lots more support and help available,
though JK2 is in active development)

Then, you can build the connectors by:

cd /place/where/you/put/the/connector/source/jk/native
./configure --with-apxs=/your/apache/path/apache/bin/apxs
make install

I'd say there's an 80% chance of success...RH's 2.0.40 isn't a "true"
2.0.40....that is, they've gone and taken fixes that were in .41, .42, .43,
and .44 and backported them to their .40 which makes their .40 sort of a

If I were you, I would uninstall the Apache RPM for 2.0.40, and build Apache
from source.  It's about as painless as can be:

./configure --with-prefix=/usr/local/apache --enable-shared=so --enable-ssl
make install

Then you can build the connectors with the latest connector source, and
you'll get all of the latest Apache security fixes, too.  Using 4.0.6
shouldn't be a problem as long as you use mod_jk.  If you must stick with
RH's .40, there are people here who can probably help, but expect a little
bit of grief.
