18.2. Download the software

First of all, make sure that you have Apache installed. You can download Apache directly from Apache web site at http://httpd.apache.org/. Its installation is pretty straightforward and requires no specific configuration. As several versions of Apache exist, we advise you to use version 2.0.x. We will consider, for the next sections, that you have installed Apache in the APACHE_HOME directory.

Next, download mod_jk binaries. Several versions of mod_jk exist as well. We strongly advise you to use mod_jk 1.2.x, as both mod_jk and mod_jk2 are deprecated, unsupported and no further developments are going on in the community. The mod_jk 1.2.x binary can be downloaded from http://www.apache.org/dist/jakarta/tomcat-connectors/jk/binaries/. Rename the downloaded file to mod_jk.so and copy it under APACHE_HOME/modules/.
