Just adding my 2 cents. I install centos 7 on my development machine. It
comes with Apache 2.4.6. I haven't been able to get loncapa to work. What
didn't work is the mod_auth_cas which is used for the single login here at
fsu. It seems mod_auth_cas is not been updated to work with apache
2.4.6. Also, I haven't been able to install oracle perl module dbd which
is required for the customized auto-enrollment. So these are customization
problems and probably won't affect most loncapa users.
