       a2enmod, a2dismod - enable or disable an apache2 module


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

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


       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.


       -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.


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


              a2enmod imagemap
              a2dismod mime_magic

       Enables the mod_imagemap module, and disables the mod_mime_magic module.

              Directory with links to the files in mods-available for enabled modules.
