This is a log of my installation/Compilation of Apache DSO
with SSL, MM, JSERV1.1 under Solaris 2.7
This is IMHO a stable configuration for servlets using Sun's JSDK2.0
as opposed to richer, but at the same time more experimental 
Jakarta/Tomcat approach. I was logged as root.

This stuff if based on INSTALL file which comes with mod_ssl.
If you are outside US, please look into INSTALL which comes
with mod_ssl, since you do not need RSAREF and can use more
robust code [your 8) and apache configure will be different].

2) Install Java 1.2 under Solaris if you do not have it.
   If you type
         java -version
   and it tells you that you have JDK 1.2, you are OK.
   If not you need to install. It is simple. You get a package
      a) click on Products & APIs
      b) choose JAVA 2 SDK, Standard Edition
      c) take: Java 2 SDK SolarisTM Production Release (J2SE)
         [I really wonder whu Sun constantly changes names. It is
         some ill-advised marketing ploy which unfortunately wastes
         a lot of time of other people]. You need:

      d) You need essentially all files. I placed them in /usr/local/java

            37347 Feb  2 09:56 1.2.1_04_Release-Notes.html
           274881 Feb  2 09:56 1.2.1_04_docs_sparc.tar.Z
         13287936 Feb  2 09:58 1.2.1_04_patches_sparc_5.5.1.tar
          4773888 Feb  2 09:58 1.2.1_04_patches_sparc_5.7.tar
            11592 Feb  2 09:58 README.sparc
         19826325 Feb  2 10:01 Solaris_JDK_1.2.1_04_sparc.bin

      e) Read the README.sparc and do what they say.
          i) chmod +x Solaris_JDK_1.2.1_04_sparc.bin
         ii) ./Solaris_JDK_1.2.1_04_sparc.bin
        iii) Move the old install directory of Java 2 (if exists):
                 mv /usr/java1.2 /usr/java1.2_previous

        iii) move the directory Solaris_JDK_1.2.1_04 just created to 
             where you want it, and you better want it at /usr/java1.2
                mv Solaris_JDK_1.2.1_04 /usr/java1.2
         iv) Since my solaris is 2.7
               % uname -a
               SunOS heechee 5.7 Generic_106541-08 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-250
             I used patches for it:
                tar xvf 1.2.1_04_patches_sparc_5.7.tar
             This created a directory ./5.7 with for tar.Z files in it
               284963 Oct 26 19:57 106980-05.tar.Z
              2660971 Oct 26 19:57 107078-10.tar.Z
              1308491 Oct 26 19:57 107607-01.tar.Z
               514653 Oct 26 19:57 107636-01.tar.Z
          v)  I unpacked each patch as:
                  gtar Zxvf 1xxxxxx-xx.tar.Z
              this creates a directory 1xxxxxx-xx for each patch
                  cd 1xxxxxx-xx
              and read  README.106980-05. Then run pkgadd
                    pkgadd -d . SUN*
               and answer yes.
      f) test if java installed corretly:

        java -version
        java version "1.2.1"
        Solaris VM (build Solaris_JDK_1.2.1_04, native threads, sunwjit)

3) Get the JSDK2.0  -- It is hidden someplace in the
   since they are pushing the new stuff, but they forget that we also need
   to use the old stuff.  Why it is hidden, beats me... 
   It causes a lot of grief for people since JSDK2.0 is the only
   one which will work with JServ. Either you know wehere it is or not.
   Once you know it, they will change it {:-(}. Go to:
   Go to the very bottom of the page and select platfom for
   Java Servlet Development Kit 2.0  (Unix) and click continue.
   Then [ACCEPT] terms. Pick up HTTP download (or FTP -- which is
   usually faster) and you will retrieve a file
   It is not really Solaris file. It will work on any UNIX since it
   is Pure Java. Unpack this file in /usr/local, i.e.,
      cd /usr/local
      gtar Zxvf /path/where/you/have/it/jsdk20-solaris2-sparc.tar.Z
   This will create directory /usr/local/JSDK2.0.

4) Set your environment variables for Java (I am assuming you use
   some Bourne shell lookalike -- ksh or bash.

      export JAVA_HOME
      export JSDK_HOME
      export PATH
      export CLASSPATH
5) Make top directory for apache JServ installation. I did
     /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1 but if you do some other, you
   need to remember to use it in the instructions below,
     mkdir /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1

6) I also make a subdirectory sources to have all needed sources
   in one place. 
     mkdir /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources
   place there tar files, and then unpack them as shown below:

  a) apache_1.3.11.tar.gz from
     gtar zxvf apache_1.3.11.tar.gz

  b) mod_ssl-2.5.0-1.3.11.tar.gz from
	gtar zxvf mod_ssl-2.5.0-1.3.11.tar.gz

  c) openssl-0.9.4.tar.gz from
     gtar zxvf openssl-0.9.4.tar.gz

  d) mm-1.0.12.tar.gz from
     gtar zxvf mm-1.0.12.tar.gz

  e) rsaref20.tar.Z -- it is no longer distributed, and I got it
     from my private museum. It is available from many places
     on the Web outside US. Search the Web FOR RSAREF 2.0.
       mkdir rsaref-2.0
       cd rsaref-2.0
       gtar Zxvf ../rsaref20.tar.Z
       cd ..

  f) ApacheJServ-1.1.tar.gz -- jserv module from
       gtar zxvf ApacheJServ-1.1.tar.gz

7) Compiled RSAREF library for openssl since we are in US and RSA has
   a patent, and we cannot use the decent implementation of crypto
   libraries. If you are in Europe, you can skip this thing.
     cd /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/rsaref-2.0
     cp -rp install/unix local
     cd local
       edited makefile to have
         CC = gcc
	changed  all occurrances of cc --> $(CC)
       added -fPIC to CFLAGS
     mv rsaref.a librsaref.a

8) Compiled the openssl [if you are in Europe, you need to
   check the mod_ssl INSTALL not to include RSAREF]

   cd /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/openssl-0.9.4
   sh config \
    -L/usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/rsaref-2.0/local/rsaref -fPIC
   make test

9) Compiled MM shared memory library
   cd /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/mm-1.0.12
   ./configure --disable-shared
   cd ..

10) Configured  mod_ssl
   cd /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/mod_ssl-2.5.0-1.3.11
   EAPI_MM=../mm-1.0.12 \
     ./configure \

11) Configure and make and install Apache with DSO support:
   cd /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/apache_1.3.11
   SSL_BASE=/usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/openssl-0.9.4 \
   RSA_BASE=/usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/rsaref-2.0/local \
   EAPI_MM=/usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/mm-1.0.12 \
   ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache_JServ1.1 \
               --enable-module=so \
               --enable-rule=SHARED_CORE \
               --enable-module=most \
               --enable-shared=max \
               --enable-module=ssl \
   make certificate TYPE=custom
   make install

   My entries for certificates with 
          make certificate TYPE=custom
   were defaults, no passwords, and:
    STEP 0: R
    STEP 2:
     1. Country Name              [XY]:US
     2. State or Province Name    [Snake Desert]:Ohio
     3. Locality Name             [Snake Town]:Columbus
     4. Organization Name         [Snake Oil, Ltd]:OSC
     5. Organizational Unit Name  [Cer..Authority]:Gateway
     6. Common Name               [Snake Oil CA]
     7. Email Address             [ca@snakeoil.dom]
     8. Certificate Validity      [365]:1000

    STEP 3: 3
    STEP 5:
     1. Country Name              [XY]:US
     2. State or Province Name    [Snake Desert]:Ohio
     3. Locality Name             [Snake Town]:Columbus 
     4. Organization Name         [Snake Oil, Ltd]:OSC
     5. Organizational Unit Name  [Webserver Team]:PSE
     6. Common Name               [www.snakeoil.dom]
     7. Email Address             [www@snakeoil.dom]
     8. Certificate Validity      [365]:1001
    STEP 6: 3
    STEP 7:n
    STEP 8:n

12) edited a file in /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/conf/httpd.conf and
    added (actually uncommented):

13) Testing if Apache works:
    a) make sure other installation of apache is not running,
       or if it runs, it does not use port 80 and port 443.
       (do: ps -ef | grep httpd), and if httpd runs, kill it
       with its own apachectl script or just use (not recommended)
          killall httpd

    b) start apache with:
       /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/bin/apachectl startssl
       If you have warning, you have a problem, and try to
       do "exactly what I say" next time {:-)}.

    c) Use your browser (preferable on some other machine)
       and check if http: and https: work
       In my case, I tries URLs:
       In the https case you should get a lot of windows
       which ask you for accepting the certificate.
       Just click Next to see if you can go through to the

    d) Stop apache, since you are not finshed yet.
       /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/bin/apachectl stop
14) Configuring JServ (note, you need to have JAVA_HOME, JSDK_HOME,
    PATH, and CLASSPATH set correctly as described in 4).

    cd /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/ApacheJServ-1.1
    ./configure \
      --prefix=/usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/jserv \
      --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/bin/apxs \
      --with-jdk-home=$JAVA_HOME \
      --with-JSDK=$JSDK_HOME \
      --with-java-platform=2 \
      --enable-EAPI \
      --disable-debugging \

    as a result it will produce some info on the screen.
    Read it and if you can grab it with a mouse and save
    in a file, do it!

15) Building and installing JServ

    cd /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/ApacheJServ-1.1

16) Making Apache copy [i.e. INSTALL] the JServ module 
    in proper directories.
      cd /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/apache_1.3.11
      make install
      cd /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/sources/ApacheJServ-1.1
      make install

17) Some log files end up with wrong permissions.
    cd /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/logs
    chgrp nobody *
    chmod g+rw *
    chgrp nobody .
    chmod g+rwx .

18) Configuring for the test of JServ.
    a) cd /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/conf
          edit httpd.conf and add at the end:
          Include /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/conf/jserv/jserv.conf
    b) start Apache
       /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/bin/apachectl startssl

    c) check if JServ works by accessing URL with Hello servlet
       in your browser:
    d) stop Apache
       /usr/local/apache_JServ1.1/bin/apachectl stop
