Where can I find apxs on amazon linux?

I'm trying to get started with an AWS website, and used the free tier Amazon Linux installation. I installed python3.3 from source, but the wsgi it comes with is for python2.6 so I tried installing mod_wsgi3.3 from source as well, at which point I get

./configure --with-python=/usr/local/bin/python3 checking for apxs2... no checking for apxs... no checking Apache version... ./configure: line 1704: apxs: command not found ./configure: line 1704: apxs: command not found ./configure: line 1705: apxs: command not found ./configure: line 1708: /: is a directory ./configure: line 1877: apxs: command not found configure: creating ./config.status config.status: error: cannot find input file: Makefile.in

and for the life of me, I have not found a single helpful online source to tell me how to get apxs installed on this system. Suggestions have all been for ubuntu, and hence sudo apt-get install apache2{}-dev where '{}' can be replace with nothing, or -worker or -threaded or -prefork; none of these have worked on my system (using sudo yum install instead).

Is there a different package name I should be looking for? If so, what is it/where do I find potential packages? sudo yum search apache doesn't yield any apache2.

Please help.


First of all if you are using Amazon Linux or any RPM based linux distro, you should use "httpd" rather than "apache2". Apache use in Debian family.

I think you can resolve this issue by installing httpd-devel package. Try yum search httpd-devel and choose required version and then do yum install httpd-devel <package version>

Sometime just firing yum install httpd-devel can do the job.
