Here's a few you can disable: mod_status, mod_info (both give extra unnecessary info about server) and mod_include (allows include statements in html files). These aren't recommended anyway unless you really need them as they create some level of security concern. mod_userdir is only needed if you are allowing users to have webpages from home directories mod_ssl, only if you're going to use ssl mod_rewrite only if you will be rewriting webpage names to something else mod_auth_basic and mod_auth_digest only if you're going to add http authentication to any of your webpages John Almberg wrote:
My Apache 2.2 instances are running about 18 Meg each. I've been thinking about doing something to trim these down, and I think tomorrow is the day to take action. They are getting out of hand. I've done a bit of research on this. I think the way to get started is to eliminate unused modules. Problem is, I know which ones I need, since I purposefully added them. I *don't* know which ones I don't need, if you see what I mean, since I inherited them from the default configuration. I assume that some are critical to the basic operation of Apache. I am hoping I can google a list of these tomorrow. Obviously these I'll have to live with. But what about the set that is left after I remove the ones the system needs, and the ones I need? How do I know which ones I can safely turn off? All I can think of is a trial and error process (i.e., turn them off one by one and see if anything breaks.)
