Apache Custom Built DSO Question

Hi,

I built the mod_echo example (attached) and Apache is refusing to load with it defined in the httpd conf file. What should I do?

I am running:
 Windows 7
 Apache 2.2

Apache does load successfully without the module defined.
Apache complains that it can not find the module mod_echo.so

Thanks in Advance!

Are you sure the module gets copied to the location where Apache expects it during the build?

I checked the modules directory to make sure it was being built and placed in the location Apache would be looking for it.

LoadModule echo_module modules/mod_echo.so is in my conf file and I deleted the copy of mod_echo in the module directory and then recompiled.

The module was where it was suppose to be, but Apache is complaining it is not there. I adjusted the permissions and everything to allow full access.

Cn you try "Process Explorer" (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653) to see if it is really trying to load that modue and if there are any issues during that process?

I read this article http://groups.google.com/group/modwsgi/browse_frm/thread/c33b42bc9b86a4df?pli=1
and I am wondering if I am missing a needed DLL? Shouldnt this example be a standalone module?
