SYNOPSIS

a2enmod [ [-q|--quiet] module] a2dismod [ [-q|--quiet] module]

EXIT STATUS

a2enmod and a2dismod exit with status 0 if all modules are processed successfully, 1 if errors occur, 2 if an invalid option was used.

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 re‐ moving 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 mod‐ ule.

FILES

/etc/apache2/mods-available Directory with files giving information on available modules. /etc/apache2/mods-enabled Directory with links to the files in mods-available for enabled modules.
