Subject [users@httpd] Setting options for Apache 2.0.54 Win32 build
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2005 08:46:13 GMT

Hello all,

I'm trying to work out how to set the equivalent of 'configure' options
--with-ldap) whilst building Apache from source **on Win32**.

I've read enough of the docs to build Apache 2.0.54, include OpenSSL
0.9.7g, run the server and connect to pages over https, but to date
trying LDAP for authentication gets nowhere as LDAP support doesn't
appear to be compiled into apr-util by default, and
requires this (according to the docs).

And I've no idea how to make it so :-)

Can anyone help with a pointer to where to start looking in the docs for
setting "configure" options on Win32?  
Even a "it can't be done" if that's the case?
I don't know if I need to build under Cygwin, or if there is some way to
set Visual Studio to do the equivalent of "./configure --with-ldap".

The hardware: compiling for Win2K / WinXp / Win2003 using old but
operational Visual Studio 6 sp6.  

The overall aim: To get Apache 2.0.54 on Win32 to authenticate with
Windows Active Directory and serve up https.  Sounds easy, huh?

I'm entirely open to other means of causing a Win32 Apache build to
authenticate with AD, but the only other I've found so far is via
Kerberos, and the auth_kerb module seems to be for Linux/Unix only.
