Adding custom modules to apache for custombuild – DirectAdmin

If you want to add any extra modules to apache in custombuild, they’ll need to be compiled in. Any module that needs to be compiled in will have a –with-module type flag which will need to be used. To add this flag, run the following:


cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
mkdir -p custom/ap2
cp configure/ap2/configure.apache custom/ap2/configure.apache
vi custom/ap2/configure.apache

#add your –with-module line to the end of the file,
# and make sure the  character exists at the end of all lines except the last one../build clean
./build apache
Then restart apache:
RedHat:/sbin/service httpd restart
FreeBSD:/usr/local/etc/rc.d/httpd restart
Debian:/etc/init.d/httpd restart

If you run into problems, you may also need to recompile php as well:./build php

Then restart apache again.
