Hi all,

I'm trying to get mod_layout to work on Direct Admin, but have had no luck. I googled, searched on various forums, but no luck.

This is what I'm doing...

1) I downloaded mod_layout-3.2.1.tar.gz
2) I did a untarred it and did a "make", then "make install"
3) I checked if modules directory as well as the httpd.conf to see if it was installed correctly.
4) I log into my DirectAdmin control panel and clicked on the "Custom Apache" option for one of my domains.
5) I add this...
LayoutFooter "testing"

I restart Apache, but now Apache is broken (won't start up).... So, now I remove it and all is better.... So that doesn't work.

6) Now I try adding this...

<Directory /home/mydomain/public_html/>
LayoutFooter "testing"

I restart Apache and get the following message...
"Starting httpd: Trying to insert <body*>
ADDING LAYOUT:<body*> (1) (2)(1)
Trying to insert </body>"

I now go to my domain and check if the word "testing" appears in my footer... But nothing shows up.

I am totally lost. I've hit a deadend. If anyone can offer any assistance, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks....
