Thanks, I appreciate it. But, been there, got stuck there. It's one of the dead ends I mentioned in my original post. But, maybe you or someone out there can address two of those problems I faced with the directions at this page:
1. My installation is with Apache 1.3.31. This page is for connecting to Apache2. Can I still use these directions?
2. Is the binary that I got from the binary download site, "jakarta-tomcat-connectors-jk-1.2.6-solaris8-sparc-apache-1.3.31_EAPI_native.so", really "mod_jk.so" that I need? I will admit that I just now noticed the line "Rename the lib mod_jk.so...," so I'm guessing that the answer to this question is "yes."
Thanks a lot!
Great, thanks for the help.
And, do I have the right binaries? Are the ones with names like "jakarta-tomcat-connectors-jk-1.2.6-solaris8-sparc-apache-1.3.31_EAPI_native.so" equivalent to the mod_jk.so files that are needed? Do I simply rename those?
I hate to belabor this, and I do appreciate the answers I have received, but I think I see why I'm not getting an answer to my question about the binaries I have downloaded. Basically, my question, which I have actually asked three times, is "do I have the correct binaries?"
Here's why I think that question isn't being answered: I have gone to the binary download page and looked at some of the other operating systems that have downloads for mod_jk. In each case, there's ACTUALLY A FILE NAMED MOD_JK*.SO or DLL, either on the download page or buried in a tar.gz file. Well, even this newbie can see that this is the file to put in the Apache directory.
But, I'm looking for this download for Solaris. There are no recent tars or gzs or anything with mod_jk in the name. This is what's in the Solaris directory:
jakarta-tomcat-connectors-jk-1.2.6-solaris8-sparc-apache-1.3.31_native.so.asc jakarta-tomcat-connectors-jk-1.2.6-solaris8-sparc-apache-2.0.43_native.so jakarta-tomcat-connectors-jk-1.2.6-solaris8-sparc-apache-2.0.43_native.so.asc
I've downloaded the Apache 1.3.31 versions, but, my question again is, do I have the right binaries? Are these the mod_jks I'm looking for? I tried simply renaming one to mod_jk and following the directions, but it doesn't work.
There ARE older (Oct 2003) tar.gzs out there, but I hesitate to use something that old, but if that's what I'm supposed to get, please let me know.
FYI, I eventually got the one named jakarta-tomcat-connectors-jk-1.2.6-solaris8-sparc-apache-1.3.31_native.so to work, at least to the point of Apache 1.3.31 starting up without errors. I renamed it to mod_jk.so, followed directions in the links to mod_jk + Apache, but the fix was that I had to add the path to libgcc_s.so.1 to my LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
