I want to enable compression in apache. For the same I am trying to use deflate module of apache.
I have already installed apache 2. But it is a default installation and in that mod_deflate is not enable. Now I am compiling mod_deflate module by using following commands:
cd /usr/local/src/httpd-2.2.21/modules/filters/ /usr/local/apache/bin/apxs -i -c -Wl,lz mod_deflate.c
After doing it I have added following line in my httpd.conf file
LoadModule deflate_module modules/mod_deflate.so
but as soon as i do syntax check I am getting following error httpd: Syntax error on line 417 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load /usr/local/apache/modules/mod_deflate.so into server: /usr/local/apache/modules/mod_deflate.so: undefined symbol: inflate
Following is the output of ldd command
linux-gate.so.1 => (0x00b2d000) libc.so.6 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libc.so.6 (0x00110000) /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x008e6000)
Please help as i dont want to compile apache again.
