Apache2 on Fedora Core 6 (64-bit)

This blog post is a lifesaver.

CPU: AMD Opteron 144 (UP)
OS: FC-6-x86_64 (in VMWare Player)

Download this, save as /home/wayne-devel/patch.txt. Then run commands (as root):

# gunzip -dc httpd-2.2.4.tar.gz | tar -xof -
# cd httpd-2.2.4/srclib/apr-util/build/
# patch apu-conf.m4 /home/wayne-devel/patch.txt
# rm configure
# cd ../../../
# rm configure
#. /buildconf
# ./configure --enable-mime-magic --enable-expires \
--enable-headers --enable-ssl --enable-http --enable-info \
--enable-dir --enable-rewrite --enable-so --enable-isapi \
# make
# make install

Steps 3-4 solves this bug, that strangely hasn’t made itself into the stable version of Apache proper. Ugh. Total time: 5 hours. There goes the beauty sleep, then.

Will try installing PHP/MySQL when the sysadmin mood strikes again. Soon I hope.
