Subject Help configuring mod_jk! Apache 2.0.54 + Tomcat 5.5.12 + SuSE Linux 10.0
Date Sun, 06 Nov 2005 05:05:45 GMT

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: /usr/lib/apache2/
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)

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 earlier
(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.
