.dll vs .so


Recommended Posts

Can you tell me what the .so extension in apache means, and why some extendable modules of apache are .dll files. If i look in some windows distribution zip files of apache i see every type of file except .dll files or .so files, EG .c, .def, .dsp, .en and .mak(i assume this file makes the module) In my modules folder I see only .so files, would a .dll file work in this setup, I'm using the uniserver 3.3. regards

The standard Apache Module Extension is .so


Whenyou see .dll in use, it means that it was compiled in MS Visual Studio or something... You can use both with the server.
