The list of loaded modules can be obtained easily if you have SSH access to the server. We will use the httpd command with the -M option. -M will output a list of loaded Static and Shared Modules.

To check if a specific module is loaded, add the grep command. For example to check the if the ssl module is present, use:

# httpd -M | grep ssl
[[email protected] ~]# httpd -M | grep ssl
 ssl_module (static)
[[email protected] ~]#

If you don’t have SSH access to the web server, you can use the apache_get_modules PHP function to get the loaded modules. This method will work only if the PHP is installed as an Apache Module (mod_php). (it will not work with PHP-FPM for example) Create a PHP file – e.g. apachemodules.php – with the following content and access it in your browser.

// prints Apache Modules - works only if the PHP is installed as an Apache Module
echo 'The Apache Modules found on the server are:</br>';
