Hello experts,

I am a newbie of building apache2 with mods. I dont like to download a serversuite which contains all stuffs u need. I want to do/build it myself!

Question1: [zlib123]
Do i need to apply this source patch to zlib123 for building apache 2.2.2?

Question2: [mod_security]
How can I integrate the source of mod_security to Apache2.2.2? There is a tutorial about integrating mod_security source to Apache 2.2.2 for Unix systems but there isn't one for win32. Neutral


$ cd <modsecurity-source>/apache2
$ mkdir -r <apache2-source>/modules/security
$ cp mod_security.c Makefile.in config.m4 <apache2-source>/modules/security
$ cd <apache2-source>
$ ./buildconf

From this point on mod_security will appear to Apache as any other built-in module. It will not be compiled-in by default. To enable it do the following:

$ ./configure --enable-security


Have a nice day and have fun with my questions Mr. Green

You can download Apache 2.2.2 from this page, also you can download the newest mod_security for Apache 2.2.2
In the forum is "how to" use mod_security
in the Readme First.txt in the zip from mod_security is a tutorial how to do that.

I think James understands what you want.

Modules are not included in the main Apache binary (libhttpd.dll libaprutil-1.dll etc.) . Modules are loaded dynamically with the Loadmodule directive. The answer to your question 2 is that the source is not integrated in Apache 2.2.2 . It is build against Apache 2.2.2 and the result is a module. And you can use for win32 the mentioned source.

Question 1 . I Do not use that patch when building Apache 2.2.2, not needed. The patch is for 2.0.58.

Indeed serversuites/wamp's are a hog with mostly not needed stuff

So a good suggestion from James is to download the Apache and mod_security from here. No need to build, just enable the modules you want to use with the Loadmodule directive.

If you still want to build for yourself, there are some posts about it in this forum.
