Hi,

I need to find out the following with respect to Apache. Can someone help me on this please.

1. How to find out the exact version of installed Apache.

2. What is the exact version of Apache on which the mod_gzip module will work. I know it starts working from one of the versions from 1.3.x onwards but not sure which one.

3. Is the code from the mod_gzip module is supplied with Apache or it has to be downloded from http://sourceforge.net.

Any help on this regard will be highly appreciated.

Thanks and Regads,

Lala

1. Find the Apache binary.  Possible locations are /usr/sbin/httpd, /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd, /usr/local/bin/httpd.  If Apache was installed from a package, use package tools for your OS to get a listing of files for the package, there you will find a path to httpd.

Run this binary from command line, giving it -V argument. Like this:

/usr/sbin/httpd -V

2. According to http://www.schroepl.net/projekte/mod_gzip/versions.htm, any version from 1.3 branch will do.

3. mod_gzip is a third-party module and has to be downloaded and installed separately.
