SYNOPSIS

a2enmod [module]

a2dismod [module]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the a2enmod and a2dismod commands.

a2enmod is a script that enables the specified module within the apache2 configuration. It does this by creating symlinks within /etc/apache2/mods-enabled. Likewise, a2dismod disables a module by removing those symlinks. It is not an error to enable a module which is already enabled, or to disable one which is already disabled.

Note that many modules have, in addition to a .load file, an associated .conf file. Enabling the module puts the configuration directives in the .conf file as directives into the main server context of apache2

EXAMPLES

a2enmod imagemap
a2dismod mime_magic

Enables the mod_imagemap module, and disables the mod_mime_magic module.

FILES

/etc/apache2/mods-available
