The following instructions have been tested on Ubuntu 11.04. 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:

    sudo apt-get -y install autoconf libtool apache2-threaded-dev libsvn-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libxml2-dev apache2-mpm-worker libapache2-svn automake
  2. Enter your password when prompted.
  3. Enter the following commands:

    wget http://downloads.atlassian.com/software/crowd/downloads/cwdapache/mod_authnz_crowd-2.2.2.tar.gz 
    tar xzf mod_authnz_crowd-2.2.2.tar.gz 
    cd mod_authnz_crowd-2.2.2
    autoreconf --install 
    sudo make install 

    If you get this error after running ./configure:

    configure: error: Could not locate Apache configuration file

    Refer to this KB for resolution: "Could not locate Apache configuration file" Error When Attempting to Install the Crowd Apache Connector on Ubuntu Linux

  4. Enter your password if 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.
