Apache2 without APXS

    I have Apache2 currently running on my system (Debian Sarge). APXS was not initially installed when Apache2 was initially installed via "The Perfect Setup". Ultimately I am trying to install the mod_jk/mod_webapp connector for Tomcat. I am trying to build the source files for mod_jk, but I need APXS.

    I have searched and searched for instructions on how to install APXS on a current Apache2 installation and cannot find anything. Short of reinstalling Apache2, does anyone know how or even if this can be done? Or, could anyone point me to a good Apache community forum where I could ask this question?

    Thanks in advance...

    apxs2 is in the apache2-devel package. You must install the apache2-devel package.
    Run
    Code:
    apt-get search apache2
    You will then find the exact name of the Apache2 devel package. To install it, run
    Code:
    apt-get install <package_name>

    I have already installed the Apache2-devel packeage, but the only apxs that I could find was the one for the ISPConfig Apache located in:
    Code:
    /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apxs

    For Apache2, apxs is called apxs2. If you search for apxs2, you should find it.

    Ran the search with no results.

    How can I serch o confirm that apache2-devel is in fact installed?

    I'm trying to install this on FC5 and of course the Debian package won't work for me (at least I don't know how to use it). I've searched everywhere trying to find apxs2, but I can't find anything. Any ideas?

    It's possible the tool is named apxs on Fedora. You should install the Apache development files on your system, there must be a package for Fedora, too.
    Run
    Code:
    yum search apache
    or
    Code:
    yum search httpd
    to find it.
