mod_put Apache module implements the HTTP/1.1 PUT and DELETE methods. Please notice that it can be a big security hole to activate them without securing the web server.


Integration with Apache 1.3.x - compiling and linking

To link mod_put into Apache (recommended for best performance), just add a add-module clause to your configure call:
./configure --add-module=/path/to/mod_put.c

Integrating into Apache 1.2.x - compiling and linking

To link the put module with Apache, you must rebuild Apache from its sources with adding mod_put in the configuration file:

Untar mod_put.tar.gz in Apache sources' directory
Edit Configuration file according your installation
Run the Configure script to rebuild the makefile
Build Apache by typing make
Install the brand new httpd program
Edit the web server configuration files (typically httpd.conf and access.conf)
Restart the web daemon
