    I've sucessully done configure&compile&install of apache HTTP server 2.4. (By manually adding apr and apr-util sources into ./srclib)

    However after
    # /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start

    I've come across a series of runtime errors such as

    Syntax error on line 84 of /etc/httpd/httpd.conf: Cannot load /usr/local/apache2/modules/ into server: dlopen(/usr/local/apache2/modules/, 10): Symbol not found: _ap_log_error\n Referenced from: /usr/local/apache2/modules/\n Expected in: flat namespace\n in /usr/local/apache2/modules/

    I had this kind of error in those lines of /etc/httpd/httpd.conf

    109, 126,81, 64, 58 and I've uncommented those lines to make httpd run.

    However after that, I've come across this:

    Invalid command 'User', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

    According to that error pertains to mod_unixd. Does that mean I have to manually add unixd module?

    And are all these problems normal for apache HTTP server 2.4? Is it worth upgrading to 2.4?

    Applying the first httpd.conf modification has helped: Removin the 7 lines with 'proxy' I 'm finally able to see httpd up and running on Activity Manager. That's fine. I could not see the 'proxy_express_module' in my .conf file though. And I achieved this result without doing anything about 'PCRE' Maybe it was not needed for my purpose. Things are OK now, thanks.
