    How to install APXS on APACHE?


    Hi there. I just noticed that my apache server does not have the APXS installed. I'm kind of a novice with this stuff and I don't quite know how to go about installing it. Could anyone please help me out?

    Thank you very much.

    Also, I'm on a RedHat server.

    Can anyone possibly help me out? I'm in desperate need for help.


    I'm trying to install APC and it tells me it cannot locate the APXS. So then I try to install APXS but now I can't locate the damn apache directory.

    Is there anyway to locate the apache directory via some command? I've looked in all the normal spots but there's nothing.

    Thanks.

    have you tried
    #locate apache
    #locate httpd
    #locate apxs


    **NOTE**
    you may need to do
    # updatedb

    and then try the locates above

    not sure how you installed your apache but here is some nice guides for installing apache+php and others from source.
    http://www.devside.net/web/server/linux
    if you read the apache guide on the link above, this is the part that gives you dso support (apxs)
    --enable-mods-shared=most

    so basically if you don't have it you will probably have to reconfigure apache

    here is a link from apache
    http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/dso.html

    Ahh thank you so very much.

    Question. If I reinstall Apache will it effect the date on my websites at all? Like the mySQL and things?

    Thank you.

    not sure what you mean by the date. are you using a custom made website or some type of cms. if your website is data/sql driven then you should be fine. But before reinstalling anything I would make a backup of your apache data files. Also if you install from source, make sure to remove your current installed version, if its redhat then make sure to remove the apache/httpd rpm.

    but Like I said, BACK IT UP FIRST

    shouldn't make a difference, but BACK IT UP FIRST.

    Ah okay, thanks a lot.


    Also, if I locate my apache directory couldn't I just install the APXS that way? Could you help me out or point me in the direction where I could figure out how to enable APXS without reinstallation?

    Thanks again, you have been a great help.

    Update

    Ahh never mind. Got everything sorted out. Thanks again for the help, greatly appreciated.

    Couldn't locate apxs after installing httpd-devel

    Thank you jledhead!

    I had installed httpd-devel and still could not find 'apxs' with the locate command. I was scratching my head for an hour before I came across your post to try 'updatedb'.

    Thank you!
