Pardon the newbie question - I haven't worked with manually compiling Apache modules (or anything) before. I am trying to get the mod_concat module going. It seems simple enough - just requires downloading the mod_concat.c file and then running:

axps -c mod_concat.c

This is new to me. Does it matter which directory I put mod_concat.c before running this command? I ran it from my home directory, and I see some new files -, mod_concat.lo, mod_concat.o, and mod_concat.slo - along with a new subfolder called .libs/ that contains along with some other files.

I'm not sure where to go from here, I have a feeling these files were created in the wrong place. Don't I need to be in my apache modules directory with the rest?

Thanks for the help, Brian

Is it just the that needs to be copied into my Apache modules directory? What about those other files and the .libs/ folder that was created? Thanks. – Brian May 8 '10 at 22:01
They're just intermediate files that are used for building the shared object. .libs/ is just a convenient place to stuff the shared object. Convenient for the build routine, that is. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 8 '10 at 22:03
Ah. Thanks for your help. – Brian May 8 '10 at 22:08
