I'm trying to install mod_mono on Linux Mint Maya/Cinnamon. I can't seem to find any tutorials or anything on how to do this.

So far, XSP and MonoDevelop seem to be working. I created an MVC solution, started it and it seemed to work fine.

I am also new to apache. This is a learning experience for me. :)

Can someone help me? Is there some "sudo apt-get mod_mono_for_apache" command that I can execute?


The apt-cache utility has the ability to search for packages. Currently, apache modules are in the form of libapache2-mod-<module name>.

On my Debian system:

$ apt-cache search libapache2-mod-mono
libapache2-mod-mono - Apache module for running ASP.NET applications on Mono
mono-apache-server1 - ASP.NET 1.1 backend for mod_mono Apache module
mono-apache-server2 - ASP.NET 2.0 backend for mod_mono2 Apache module

You can view the full package descriptions using apt-cache show <package>.

After a new Apache module is installed in Debian, it still needs to be enabled:

a2enmod mono
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

See the apt-cache manpage for more information.

  • Thank you - this is information I did not know. I hope that such a package is available on Mint, otherwise I think more legwork on my part will be needed. I will let you know what I find. – aikeru Aug 15 '12 at 12:55

Have you installed synaptic?

If not....

sudo apt-get install synaptic

once it's installed

sudo synaptic

this will give you a gui interface for apt-get and allow you to search for mod mono and see what it throws up.

Good luck.
