Subject Re: [users@httpd] Installed Modules Query
Date Fri, 08 Nov 2013 09:28:30 GMT
Hello Frank,

Apache is very flexible and allows the installer (ie. you) to choose
which modules to compile statically into the httpd binary, which to
compile as loadable, external DSOs and which not to compile at all.

The very small list of compiled-in modules which you see are the bare
bones for getting apache running. Any other modules you need can be
built as DSOs and loaded on demand with the LoadModule directive. This
is usually a good thing because it gives the apache administrator
(probably also you) the ability to change which modules to use without
having to recompile the httpd binary. There is a very slight performance
overhead with this but that's only a consideration in extreme cases.

So, the oracle doc assumes that these modules have been built
statically, whereas you have built them dynamically.
This should have no material effect on the server's operation.

Good luck,
