11.4. Working with Modules

Being a modular application, the httpd service is distributed along with a number of Dynamic Shared Objects (DSOs), which can be dynamically loaded or unloaded at runtime as necessary. By default, these modules are located in /usr/lib/httpd/modules/ on 32-bit and in /usr/lib64/httpd/modules/ on 64-bit systems.

11.4.1. Loading a Module

To load a particular DSO module, use the LoadModule directive as described in Section 11.3.1, “Common httpd.conf Directives”. Note that modules provided by a separate package often have their own configuration file in the /etc/httpd/conf.d/ directory.
Example 11.79. Loading the mod_ssl DSO
LoadModule ssl_module modules/

Once you are finished, restart the web server to reload the configuration. Refer to Section 11.2.3, “Restarting the Service” for more information on how to restart the httpd service.
