I am following this tutorial about how to create my own tiles and got stuck on slide 20. I am trying to tell my web server about my mod_tile installation. However the folder /etc/apache2 doesn't have a conf.d. How can I fix that?

  • Is Apache running ~ do you get an "It Works!" statement when you browse to localhost?

  • Yeah it works. The folder just doesn't exist in my apache configuration for some reason.

  • The name of the folder is not important, different implementations of Apache are built differently, the important thing is that it's working.

I ended up solving it the following way:

Go to the folder mods-available

cd /etc/apache2/mods-available

Create the file here

sudo touch mod_tile.load

Edit the file

sudo gedit mod_tile.load

add this line to the file

LoadModule tile_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_tile.so

Tell apache to use the mod

sudo a2enmod tile

Restart apache

service apache2 restart
