Here's a little heads up. The iFolder 2.1 module for Apache is compiled for Apache 2.0.43. This means that Apache will fail to start if there is already a different version installed on the server. Here's how to fix it.

1: Uninstall the pre-installed Apache
2: In the iFolder software package there is a binary distribution of Apache 2.0.43
   2.1: cd <iFolder installation software>
   2.2: cd apache2-linux
   2.3: tar zxfv httpd-2.0.43-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz
   2.4: cd httpd-2.0.43
   2.5: ./install-bindist.sh - this will install Apache2 in /usr/local/apache2
3: cd /usr/local/apache2/conf
   3.1: vi httpd.conf - make sure that 'ServerName' and other required parameters are correct (see the Apache documentation for more information)
   3.2: add "include /usr/local/ifolder/Server/httpd_ifolder_unix.conf" to the end of httpd.conf to include the iFolder module, and settings.
4: start Apache: /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start | startssl
