Compiling apache_1.3.27

Compiling apache_1.3.27

Post by Tiscal » Thu, 10 Jul 2003 16:34:56


I can't create the Makefile with the configure script to build
apache_1.3.27. I need this version to add the latest stable mod_perl.

Here is what I see when I try ./configure with no argument ( the error
message is the same with arguments to add mod_perl ):

Configuring for Apache, Version 1.3.27

 + This is probably not what you really want.

The Makefile is empty, so I can't build it...

Any Idea?

Thank's in advance


1. apache_1.3.27 / mod_ssl-2.8.12-1.3.27

Ok. I have tried many times to figure this one out, but now I am asking
for some help here. I have apache_1.3.27 with mod_perl-1.27 and
mod_ssl-2.8.12-1.3.27. I first confiure mod_ssl for apache_1.3.27 as
the directions say. Then I configure and compile mod_perl-1.27 and
let that build apache for me. I have used this method for the last 10 or
so apache releases. I have my LD_LIBRARY_PATH set to
/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/ssl/lib:/opt/local/lib as I have in the past.

It all compiles just fine. From the apache_1.3.27 directory, I type
./src/httpd -l and get the long list of compiled in modules, including
ssl and perl.

But, in a different shell, with LD_LIBRARY_PATH not set, when I do a test
start with this command:

/usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -f /opt/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf

I get this error: /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd: fatal: open failed:
No such file or directory

If I set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to something that has the, it
will start
up. I never had to have this set before. Anybody know why this might be

Thanks in advance.
