Description Russell Coker 2006-07-10 09:25:22 EDT
The Allow operations in the default httpd.conf do not have <IfModule 
mod_access.c> or have mod_access.c statically linked into the server.

The current compilation of httpd seems to assume that mod_access is optional, 
while the default httpd.conf seems to assume that it's mandatory,  I believe 
that for consistency one of these needs to change.

It's probably best to have it compiled in, almost no-one would want to not 
have it, and needless use of modules wastes some memory and load time.
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2006-07-10 09:36:30 EDT
There is no mod_access in 2.2; see http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/upgrading.html  

All modules built as DSOs are by definition optional; you can write valid
configurations which don't use them; building them into all httpd binaries
shipped  would waste space (installed disk space and package space).
