How to install mod_jk.so on Cent OS

The Basics - What is mod_jk?


The mod_jk connector is an Apache HTTPD module that allows HTTPD to communicate with Apache Tomcat instances over the AJP protocol.

Steps:


1. Download the latest apache connector from http://tomcat.apache.org/download-connectors.cgi.
2. Untar the download by
         tar zxvf <filename>
3. Goto native directory of connector
         cd <connector dir>/native/
4. Run the buildconf.sh scripts
       ./buildconf.sh
Note: If you get any issue like "autocong" not installed then install following things:
       yum install autoconf
       yum install libtool

5. You need "httpd-devel" tools to build it. So make sure you have already installed it by
         yum list installed | grep httpd-devel    else install it "yum install httpd-devel"
6. From the native directory Run
      ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs
      make

 

Congrats!! Now you can see the mod_jk.so module under your native directory.
