binaries? If its an executable then you can do:

./mod_jk

or whatever the file name is. Just proceed the file name with a ./

No, that's the entire filename. I'm trying to establish the connection between Apache and Tomcat using the mod_jk2 connector.

From what I can see from:
http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jak...ining%20mod_jk

The the file you have downloaded is the shared object file as compiled for redhat 9. As such I dn't think there is anything to extract. Just install it as per the installation instructions.

Evidently, the version I downloaded doesn't work with Apache 2.0.40, so now I have to update Apache to version 2.0.45. I'll try that and see what I get.

Thanks!!!!
