Subject RE: Help configuring mod_jk! Apache 2.0.54 + Tomcat 5.5.12 + SuSE Linux 10.0
Date Sun, 06 Nov 2005 05:42:26 GMT

I hope I can help - at least a bit.

First, your assumption as to whether you have the correct mod_jk binar is
probably correct - IF you are running x64 architecture hardware (an AMD64 or
one of the Intel Xeon's with 64 bit extensions). I am running SuSE
Enterprise Server 9 (SLES9) on our dual-Opteron servers. I ended up
downloading jakarta-tomcat-connectors- and compiling them. I
usually prefer to search and search for an RPM, but in this case it was
quite easy - once I figured out the maze of subdirectories under the
expanded source package :)

So ... for my situation ends up in /usr/lib64/apache2/
I'm just getting started with Open SuSE 10.0, so I am not sure if the
location will be the same or not. If you are not using 64 bit hardware, then
it would probably be /usr/lib/apache2/ (and you would need the
32bit module also).

Hope this helps - Richard

Subject: Help configuring mod_jk! Apache 2.0.54 + Tomcat 5.5.12 + SuSE Linux


I installed SuSE 10.0 via DVD. I have added this mirror
as the installation source in YaST so that I don't need DVD in future.

I installed Apache2 (ver. 2.0.54), apache2-debuginfo, apache2-devel,
apache2-doc, apache2-example-pages, apache2-prefork via YaST. I have
downloaded Tomcat 5.5.12 from website. Btw. I am using J2SE 1.5.0_05.

The problem that I have is installing mod_jk with above configuration. I
downloaded the linux binary of Tomcat connector aka mod_jk from
. I am assuming that is the correct connector. Then I renamed it to I tried two things:

(A) Installation procedure-1
Followed guide from with in to /usr/lib/apache2/ directory.

(B) Installation procedure-2
Followed guide from
with in /usr/lib/apache2/ directory.

In both procedures, I get following error:
Syntax error on line 4 of /usr/local/tomcat/conf/auto/mod_jk.conf:
Cannot load /usr/lib/apache2/ into server:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I verified that I have file on that location and file has proper access
(chmod) attributes. 

I have tried above procedure with the directory /usr/lib/apache2-prefork
directory. Same thing was repeated.

I am very new to tomcat and apache configuration esp. mod_jk. This is first
time I am installing mod_jk. I have seen it getting installed by my friends
(1-2 years ago). I showed the error to them. But they dont have any clue.
They didnt do such things recently. I tried to search help on web and but
could not find proper answer.

Please help me solving this error.

Thank you very much for your help.
