installing mod_mono with apache 1.3


I try to play around with in Linux platform. Ok.... here is the INSTALL file....

* Step by step (everything in /usr!)
1. Install mod_mono.

tar xvfz mod_mono-X.Y.Z.tar.gz
cd mod_mono-X.Y.Z
(*) ./configure --prefix=/usr
make install

(*) If it complains about not finding apxs because you installed
apache in a non-common directory or the configuration summary
reports an apache version different from what you expected, use
the --with-apxs argument. Example:

./configure --prefix=/usr --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs

(Apache 2 only) If you get errors while compiling due to apr.h
header not found, you'll need to use the --with-apr-config option
and provide the full path to 'apr-config':

./configure --prefix=/usr --with-apr-config=/usr/bin/apr-config

After running 'make install', the module is installed in the
proper location and the apache configuration file has been
updated to load the module. apxs automatically adds this line (or
similar) to httpd.conf if not already present:

LoadModule mono_module modules/

2. Configure apache.

We're going to configure apache so that we can browse the samples
installed by XSP under /usr/share/doc/xsp/test.

Edit your httpd.conf file, which should be in /etc/httpd,
/etc/apache, /etc/apache2...

Add the following lines:

Alias /demo "/usr/share/doc/xsp/test"
MonoApplications "/demo:/usr/share/doc/xsp/test"

so that apache redirects requests from /demo to /demo/ and looks
for everything requested as /demo/xxx under
/usr/share/doc/xsp/test/xxx.Don't forget the quotes.

For Apache 1.3 and, optionally, for Apache 2.0, add these lines:

<Directory /usr/share/doc/xsp/test>
SetHandler mono
<IfModule mod_dir.c>
DirectoryIndex index.aspx

If you are using Apache 2.0, you can use get the same results with

<Location /demo>
SetHandler mono

Take a look at Appendix A below for typical configuration
samples and Appendix B for detailed descriptions on available
configuration directives.

3. Restart apache.
4. Point your browser to

I have difficulties in step 2. In what part of httpd.conf file I have to put that lines? Where do I have to put these lines:
Alias /demo "/usr/share/doc/xsp/test"
MonoApplications "/demo:/usr/share/doc/xsp/test"
in httpd.conf file?

Where do I have to put these lines in my httpd.conf file?
<Directory /usr/share/doc/xsp/test>
SetHandler mono
<IfModule mod_dir.c>
DirectoryIndex index.aspx

You can put these lines anywhere in httpd.conf, but make sure you don't put them inside a directive block.

You could put lines at the end of httpd.conf before any include directive, if there are ones.
