Need 64bit mod_jk.so for tomcat 7.0.25 and apache 2.4.10

I've upgraded my Slackware to Distro 14.1, 64bit. I'm using the as-shipped Apache 2.4.10. So far, I've simply copied over my tomcat 7.0.25 jarfiles, .jsp files, etc. I'm sure I'll run into all kinds of issues, but my first problem is finding a 64bit mod_jk.so. I've searched around and come up with nothing that says it will work with Apache 2.4.x.

Need some help!

Unfortunately There is no 64bit mod_jk for slackware. You might need to use 32 bit httpd for it.

Does any distro have a 64bit mod_jk? Does this bode Ill for jsp's future?

My OS is 64bit and it does not run 32bit binaries (I tried). Does this mean I'd have to wipe and reinstall 32bit?

Do I have any alternatives?

Yes. OpenSUSE / CentOS / Redhat has pre-packaged x86_64 rpms.

Is this for personal or production?

If this is for production I would recommend checking with Redhat Sales for their suggestion. I believe JBOSS supports x86_64 but not sure if it fits in your environment.

I did find a solution. http://tomcat.apache.org/download-connectors.cgi has links to various Tomcat versions.  I selected Tomcat 8.0, then downloaded the tomcat-connectors-1.2.40-src.tar.gz tarball. I untarred and followed the build instructions in ./README.txt. For Apache:

$ cd native
$ ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs
$ make
$ cp apache-2.0/mod_jk.so /user/lib64/httpd/modules/mod_jk.so

Open in new window

That did the trick! (along with the "LoadModule    jk_module  lib64/httpd/modules/mod_jk.so" in httpd.conf, of course)
