Installing the Crowd Apache Connector on Debian

The following instructions have been tested on Debian 6.0.1a. Other versions may require variations to this procedure.


  1. Open a terminal on the system, change to a suitable working directory, and enter the following command:

    su -c "apt-get -y install autoconf libtool apache2-threaded-dev libsvn-dev libcurl4-dev libxml2-dev apache2-mpm-worker libapache2-svn make"
  2. Enter the root password when prompted.
  3. Enter the following commands:

    tar xzf mod_authnz_crowd-2.2.2.tar.gz 
    cd mod_authnz_crowd-2.2.2
    autoreconf --install 
    su -c "make install"
  4. Enter the root password when prompted.
  5. Everything you need should now be installed and Apache should restart. If Apache fails to start, check the /var/log/apache2/error.log file.

Now that the software is installed, the next step is to configure Apache authentication.
