Just a few questions on apache 2.x on Mac 10.4:
1) I installed apache 2..2.x at /usr/local/apache2. The modules folder at /usr/local/apache2/modules has files with a ".a" or ".la" extension.
i) What are these files?
ii) Why are there no .so modules in this location?
2) I have an error when I try and start apache2:
httpd: Syntax error on line 58 of /apache2/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load /usr/local/apache2/modules/mod_authn_file.so into server: cannot create object file image or add library
I have a file mod_authn_file.a and a file mod_authn_file.la but no .so module extensions. What is the problem and how can repair this? (fyi: I've created a symlink from /apache2/conf/httpd.conf to /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf)
3) When I execute "httpd -V" I get the
How do I change the root to "/usr/local/apache2"?
