./config --prefix=/usr/local/lib_http2 no-ssl2 no-ssl3 zlib-dynamic -fPIC
make depend
make install

Install nghttp2 - HTTP/2 Library

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
./build update
./build nghttp2

​Install HTTP/2 for Apache 2.x

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
mkdir -p custom/ap2
cp -p configure/ap2/configure.apache custom/ap2/configure.apache
vi custom/ap2/configure.apache

### REPLACE "--with-ssl=/usr" \
### WITH:

        "--enable-http2" \
        "--enable-ssl-staticlib-deps" \
        "--with-ssl=/usr/local/lib_http2" \
