NAME

       a2enmod, a2dismod - enable or disable an apache2 module

SYNOPSIS

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

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

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
       removing 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.

OPTIONS

       -q, --quiet
              Don't show informative messages.

       -m, --maintmode
              Enables  the  maintainer mode, that is the program invocation is
              effectuated automatically by a maintainer  script.  This  switch
              should not be used by end users.

       -p, --purge
              When  disabling  a module, purge all traces of the module in the
              internal state data base.

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.

EXAMPLES

              a2enmod imagemap
              a2dismod mime_magic

       Enables  the  mod_imagemap  module,  and  disables  the  mod_mime_magic
       module.

              Directory with files giving information on available modules.

       /etc/apache2/mods-enabled
              Directory with links to the files in mods-available for  enabled
