Installing the Crowd Apache Connector on Other UNIX-Like Systems

The following instructions have been tested on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server. Other platforms 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 "yum -y install autoconf automake gcc httpd-devel libcurl-devel libtool libxml2-devel mod_dav_svn subversion-devel"
  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/httpd/error_log file.

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