Help: installing mod_backhand
Installing mod_backhand is the easiest thing one can do.

If you are installing it with Apache (compiling and installing all in one fell swoop), then follow the directions in the "Help: compiling mod_backhand" document.

If you have the dynamically loadable modules and you want to use them in your existing Apache build, simply copy them into your ServerRoot/libexec, where the rest of the shared modules are.

If you have problems and find that httpd is core dumping (segmentaion fault or bus error) then you really need to compile the modules yourself. Apparently your Apache build is not the same as our Apache build. To do this, follow the directions in the "Help: compiling mod_backhand" document.

If you want to compile mod_backhand after you have already installed Apache, it is possible, but we do not provide the turn-key solutions for this approach. We recommend building it with Apache. If you really want to do this, Apache comes with the apxs tool for this and you can hack together a small makefile that will pull the correct includes from your installed tree. The problem is that every system is a little different and we figured that if a percon knows enough to want to take this approach, that can easily compile this module without our help.
