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.
