Hi, Does anybody know how to build mod_csrf in windows ?
Apache documentation points to the apache extension tool to do this:
However I need to execute this tool in windows, where can I download it?

I've had a quick look at this problem.

You've already worked out by default there is no apxs for Windows, so to build this module you have to go back to basics.

However, when trying to build mod_csrf (0.9) I hit a number of issues.

    Microsoft (R) C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 19.27.29112 for x64
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    mod_csrf.c(449): error C2079: 'cipher_ctx' uses undefined struct 'evp_cipher_ctx_st'

Looking at line 449 of the source code we have the following declaration:

EVP_CIPHER_CTX cipher_ctx;

Unfortunately, this suggests the module code was written for OpenSSL 1.0 rather than 1.1 series, where some data types were changed to be non-opaque to hide their internal structure.

Looking elsewhere at the code, it seems to be nominally targetted at Apache 2.2, so unfortunately, without someone picking up the module source code and modifying it for later versions of OpenSSL and Apache, I think you're stuck.

The current module hasn't been updated for several years, and is still on SourceForge, noting the original authors haven't migrated the code to GitHub.

apxs.bat only generates a makefile.

However mod_Security can do csfr if I remember correctly.
