I compiled my own copy of Apache 2.2 for testing SPDY and installed locally in my Linux home directory. However, I can't find the a2enmod as part of the install. Where can I find that script or can someone show me the equivalent?

Many thanks!

You can always copy in the script from Debian. – womble Aug 3 '12 at 22:25

a2enmod is a Debian-ism, and isn't used for anything other than Debian's (or Debianlike) apache packages.

Your equivalent is to edit $PREFIX/conf/httpd.conf and add your site configuration.
