Adding a new module in Apache Server

Adding and Compiling a new module in Apache Server


The following steps are required for adding up a new module (DSO) to the Apache Web Server:
If you have your own module, you can add it to the "httpd.conf" file, so that it is compiled in and loaded as a DSO (Dynamic Shared Objects).
For the successful compilation of the shared module, please check the installation of the "apache-devel" package because it installs the include files, the header files and the Apache eXtenSion (APXS) support tools.
