Description tomj 1999-07-23 14:54:37 EDT
When I run apxs -i -a -n 'foo' mod_foo.so the line added
to the httpd.conf file looks like this:

LoadModule foo_module lib/apache/mod_foo.so

However, the 'ServerRoot' is used to find these modules and
that is set to /etc/httpd so the correct line should be:

LoadModule foo_module modules/mod_foo.so

So, after running apxs -i, httpd will fail to start since it
can't load the module.  This was a problem in RH 5.2 and is
still a problem in 6.0.

this will be fixed in the next release (6.1).
