I tried to install mod_gzip and I am not having a good time.

After downloading mod_gzip from layer1, I extracted the files then ran make install. I got the error below:

# make install
if [ "`grep "mod_gzip/" \
/usr/local/apache/libexec/`" = "" ]; then /usr/local/apache/bin/apxs -i -a ;fi
grep: /usr/local/apache/libexec/ No such file or directory
[activating module `gzip' in /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf]
cp /usr/local/apache/libexec/
cp: cannot stat `': No such file or directory
apxs:Break: Command failed with rc=1
make: *** [install] Error 1

So I went ahead and copied and chmod 755 from my other server and placed it in /usr/local/apache/libexec/

I went ahead and ran make install once again and this time I got no error. I added the neccessary configuration to httpd.conf but still mod_gzip is not working.

Anyone have a clue?

I am running redhat 7.3 apache 1.3.27 w/ php 4.3
