Novell iFolder 2.1 for Linux

Apache2 for Linux


iFolder 2.1 for Linux does not work with a distribution installed Apache

iFolder 2.1 for Linux requires Apache 2.0.43


The iFolder 2.1 module for Apache is compiled for Apache 2.0.43, this means that Apache will fail to start, if there already is an Apache installed on the server which is not version 2.0.44.


To solve the issue do:
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) ./ - 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 Apache documentation for more information
3.1) 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
