Adding NEW Apache Modules: Completely confused.
I have a non standard Apache Module that I need to add to a server
on a Debian system. I have the current 1.3.1 Apache on the server at the
moment but would like to upgrade to 1.3.3 + this new module.
According to Apache I modify some config files and recompile the server
after running the configure utility. Debian, for some reason I can't
hope to guess, decided to do it differently with dynamically loaded
modules and a SRM.CONF file. They also don't seem to have documented
this process. So you see I have the Apache way, which is documented, and
the Debian way, which isn't.
I have a few questions.
1) Is it possible to just run configure and make a standard Linux binary
of Apache 1.3.3 the way Apache.org does it? Will it work? Will the
various config files be compatable? If not what would I need to change
to make this new binary work.
2) What is involved in adding this new module to the Dynamic module
loading scheme used by Debian? Are there special libraries needed? What
else will I need to have, what compile flags should I use and which
config files are effected?
Thanks for your help.
