Windows Apache Module Install

access_time Updated Dec 6, 2022

Requirements

  • Windows 10 or higher (64-bit), Windows Server 2016
  • Apache 2.4
  • Verify you have installed the Signal Sciences Windows Agent. This will ensure the appropriate folder structure is in place on your file system.

Installation

  1. Download the Apache module from:

    https://dl.signalsciences.net/sigsci-module-apache/sigsci-module-apache_latest.zip

  2. Extract the Signal Sciences Apache Module from the .zip archive to your Apache modules directory, replacing PATH-TO-APACHE with the path to your Apache installation:

    unzip sigsci-module-apache_latest.zip
    copy mod_sigsci.so PATH-TO-APACHE\modules\
    
  3. Add the following line to your Apache configuration file (httpd.conf) after the “Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) Support” section to enable the Signal Sciences Apache module:

    LoadModule signalsciences_module modules/mod_sigsci.so
    
  4. Test to confirm the configuration is correct, replacing MY-SERVICE-NAME with the name of your service:

    httpd.exe -n "MY-SERVICE-NAME" -t
    
  5. Start the Apache service as normal, for example:

    net start Apache2.4
    

    Or restart the Apache service with the following example command, replacing MY-SERVICE-NAME with the name of your service:

    httpd.exe -k restart -n "MY-SERVICE-NAME"
