Adding custom modules to apache for custombuild in DirectAdmin

If you want to add any extra modules to apache in custombuild, they’ll need to be compiled in. Any module that needs to be compiled in will have a –with-module type flag which will need to be used. To add this flag, run the following:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
mkdir -p custom/ap2
cp configure/ap2/configure.apache custom/ap2/configure.apache
vi custom/ap2/configure.apache

#add your –with-module line to the end of the file,
# and make sure the character exists at the end of all lines except the last one.

./build clean
./build apache

Then restart apache:


systemctl restart httpd.service


/usr/local/etc/rc.d/httpd restart


/etc/init.d/httpd restart

If you run into problems, you may also need to recompile php as well:

./build php

Then restart apache again.
