Apache, Windows, and upgrades

From: Kyle Kline <kyle.kline_at_gmail.com>

I noticed that after the initial Windows install (with the setup program)
that adds the SVN LoadModule lines into httpd.conf, subsequent (upgrade)
installs do not update the modules in the Apache2/modules directory.

I changed my httpd.conf to read like this:

# Load the BDB library so the mod_dav_svn can load later
LoadFile "C:/Program Files/Subversion/bin/libdb43.dll"

[ ...regular list of LoadModule statements... ]

LoadModule dav_svn_module "C:/Program Files/Subversion/bin/mod_dav_svn.so"
LoadModule authz_svn_module "C:/Program
Files/Subversion/bin/mod_authz_svn.so"

This way Apache will always load the latest bin files from the regular
Subversion program dir without requiring separate copies (just requires
stopping the Apache service during the install.)

I'm new to Apache -- is there anything inherently wrong with this approach?
It seems to work just fine ...

Thanks,
Kyle
