How to install mod_speling?

I have absolutely no idea how to install the mod_speling module. How do I go about installing it?? I don’t even know where to start. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks


Welcome to SitePoint’s Apache forum!

mod_speling is a module which is included in Apache distributions and can be activated by UNcommenting the LoadModule which references mod_speling.

Enjoy it!



There is no LoadModule reference to mod_speling in my httpd.conf.

Is there a way to install it in?


I’m running Apache 2.2.9 on my test server (XP SP3) and the module is in the C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\modules directory. It’s also in httpd.conf in the line “LoadModule speling_module modules/” (they are listed in alphabetical order).

If you’re using Linux, get the compilation instructions at then review
