Adding a module to Apache disables jserv

Adding a module to Apache disables jserv

Post by Annette Strupp-Adam » Thu, 13 May 1999 04:00:00

I configured an Apache 1.3.3 server to automatically start the Apache
JServ servlet engine when the server comes up.
I  am using Apache-JServ-1.0b2.  Everything went fine, and I wrote my
first servlet.

Then I had to configure the Apache server to efficiently process a large
number of users. I, therefore,  reconfigured Apache
to include the mod_auth.dbm module.

Now the servlet engine no longer works.

Is it true that, in order to add a new module to Apache, one has to
reconfigure, for example, as in my case, the JServ servlet
engine from scratch ?  I have modified the examples on the servlet
engine some, so do I have to install a brand-new JServ
servlet engine while reconfiguring the Apache Web Server to include
mod_auth.dbm ?

When I do a :

httpd -l

the jserv module no longer is included.  The mod_auth.dbm is.

Thank you,

1. Problems adding Apache JServ module to Apache Web Server as a Dynamic Shared Object

Please someone help!!!

I am trying to add Apache Jserv as a dynamic
shared object to the Apache Web Server 1.3.9.

I have installed the binary Apache Web Server and
checked that it has DSO support enabled by
looking for mod_so.c when I ran httpd -l from
within the Apache bin directory.

Apache is running fine (I get a congratulations
page when I go to http://hostname with a web

I ran the configure script for Apache JServ with
the following options

I then ran make ; make install.  This created the
docs directory in /cimage/jserv and
ApacheJServ.jar and
in /cimage/apache/libexec

I then restarted apachectl which complained about
the line which loads

apachectl restart: httpd not running, trying to
Syntax error on line 238
of /cimage/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /cimage/apache/libexec/
into server: /cimage/ap
fatal: /cimage/apache/libexec/
unknown file type
apachectl restart: httpd could not be started

However when running file against it
says 'current ar archive, not a dynamic
executable or shared object'

What have I done wrong?

Thanks in advance
