compiling apache 2.2.14 on CentOS 5

wrangled with this a bit today. One of our clients needed the upgrade for PCI compliance, and CentOS still has 2.2.8 as the latest version in YUM.

I couldn't find any decent RPMs, so I decided to compile from scratch by first downloading & extracting the source from apache.org.

The ./configure command for installing apache 2.2.14 on CentOS is below. The --disable lines you see are there because CentOS installs the default modules separately, which is probably a good thing. The rest of the options I found by reverse engineering the directory structure of the existing apache install.

To compile from source, you may need to first run: yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'

./configure \
--prefix=/etc/httpd \
--exec-prefix=/usr \
--bindir=/usr/bin \
--sbindir=/usr/sbin \
--mandir=/usr/share/man \
--libdir=/usr/lib64 \
--sysconfdir=/etc/httpd/conf \
--includedir=/usr/local/include/httpd \
--libexecdir=/etc/httpd/modules \
--datadir=/var/www \
--with-mpm=prefork \
--with-devrandom \
--disable-auth \
--disable-cgi \
--disable-cgid \
--disable-mime \
--disable-env \
--disable-setenvif \
--disable-negotiation \
--disable-alias \
--disable-actions \
--disable-autoindex \
--disable-include \
--disable-dir \
--disable-userdir \
--disable-status \
--disable-authn-file \
--disable-authn-default \
--disable-authz-default \
--disable-authz-user \
--disable-authz-host \
--disable-authz-groupfile \
--disable-auth-basic \
--disable-asis \

Note that I also had to then comment out the following lines, possibly because I didn't --enable-ldap during the compile. I don't need LDAP though, so I just commented out:

#LoadModule ldap_module modules/mod_ldap.so
#LoadModule authnz_ldap_module modules/mod_authnz_ldap.so

You don't happen to have anything for OpenSSH 4.4 for CentOS 5 do you? We are running into the same reason for the upgrades as you ... PCI compliance.

Thanks for the tip!

"... CentOS installs the default modules separately ..."

Did you have to install the modules for version 2.2.14?

The option --enable-<module>=shared would generate the DSOs right? Did you have to do this?
