Apache modules


#1

I’m part way through learning about WordPress, which I think I’ll be wanting to use. (BTW it was through the link at WordPress that I found DH.)

It seems that I’ll want a lot of optional Apache modules running - so far I’ve identified:
rewrite
mcrypt
gzip

Will those three be enabled by default? If I need any that aren’t installed/enabled, can I make it happen? If yes, how?


#2

We have rewrite and gzip running by default. mcrypt is not installed. You can request that an additional apache module be installed, but it is probably not that likely that we will do so unless it provides functionality that a lot of our customers are asking for. On a dedicated server you can do anything (legal) you want, however.
