10.1.2 Oracle HTTP Server Fails To Load mod_wls module on Windows 64-Bit Server Systems

On x64 edition systems of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, Oracle HTTP Server fails to load the mod_wl_ohs module if the MatchExpression property is provided within the IfModule weblogic_module block of the mod_wl_ohs.conf file.

To workaround this issue, comment out the MatchExpression property inside the IfModule weblogic_module block.

       WebLogicPort ....
       Debug ON
       WLLogFile .......
       # MatchExpression *.*
