I'm trying to install mod_python 3.3.1 on Apache 2.4.3 and whenever I try to run ./configure (with apxs etc) and instead of configuring correctly, it says that Apache 2.x is required and my current version is .

I've tried on two different versions of Apache, and Two different versions of mod_python but always with the same result. I am running as root. Any suggestions?

What OS/Distro are you using? How did you install Apache (via package or source)? – bahamat Sep 24 '12 at 18:59
The problem doesn't seem to be the version of Apache, but the file /wwwroot/bin/apxs, which is reported to be executable on one line and not found on the next line. What distribution are you running? What architecture (32-bit or 64-bit)? What is the output of ls -l /wwwroot/bin/apxs; file -L /wwwroot/bin/apxs? – Gilles Sep 24 '12 at 23:31
