Apache configuration questions

Hello all. I have a successful install of apache and am using for my static holder. Site is if that's relevant. Since apache came pre-installed with Slackware 10, I'm having problems determining a)whether SSL is already built into it and b)how to install modules after the initial apache install.

Also, sort of related to this problem, I plan on setting up an LDAP server in the near future. I've checked HOWTO's on the configuration and I know slapd.conf is the main file that controls the behavior of LDAP, but it sure seems complicated from there. Is the best approach to install an LDAP client to be used with OpenLDAP which can modify its behavior or am I stuck having to learn all of the vast directives? The main purpose of this install is two-fold: provide a central lookup server to be accessed from anywhere in the world and allow me to have my bookmark file loaded with the most current data.

Any/all help would be awesome.

For adding modules...look into the Load Module & Add Module sections in the httpd.conf. SSL support is built-in with Apache in slack 10. You must have mod_ssl.conf in /etc/apache directory, which is the SSL config file for apache.


Edit: No idea about LDAP.

Check out this other thread here: . The first couple of pointers will let you check to see if you have Apache SSL available. There may already be a package available for Slackware that provided is, most other distros have an Apache package that installs by default and an Apache SSL.

Don't know much about LDAP stuff I'm afraid, maybe someone else can help :-)

I'm pretty sure there is a mod_ssl package on the install CD so that is the way to go seeing as your using the bundled package of apache, I don't know how to go about setting it up, I have always compiled apache with appropriate options

Ok, was afraid of that. Thanks you all for your input. I've learned my lesson. I should've just reinstalled with the correct parameters.
