22the commit messages below, upto and including point 6, are relative to
23this.  Some more notes to do with Apache Httpd and how Greenstone
24compiles and installs (including upon Installation of Greenstone) are
25at the bottom.

28The httpd tar.gz file works with the files httpd.conf.in for linux and
29windows-httpd.conf.in for windows.

31Revision 20171, 17.6 KB (checked in by ak19, 12 months ago) explains:
32"Windows httpd.conf.in file is not the same as the one for linux and
33darwin (Mac), since one gets the Modules Already Loaded message on
34Linux if the existing httpd.conf.in was interchanged with the Windows
35one."

44on both OS.

53Dr Bainbridge fixed the configure.in (and generated the configure file
54from it) so that it generates the libexpat.so.0 file it needs. This
55way the apache web server won't look elsewhere for the so file and
56perhaps find an incompatible version of it.

75Teaches the apache web server being compiled up where the static
76libiconv lib file, libiconv.a, is to be found (which greenstone would
77have compiled up during the greenstone configure stage). The
78with-iconv flag is set in runtime-src/packages/configure file to point
79to the common-src/packages/iconv folder wherein the lib folder
80contains the generated libiconv.a file. The apache server tar file is
81updated as well: no longer does it add the with-iconv flag explicitly
82since this is now already set at a higher up level and is passed down
83to it.

102Dr Bainbridge updated srclib/apr/configure.in so that sendfile is set
103to 0 for Darwin (Mac) to tell Darwin systems that we won't be working
104with calls to sendfile, since Tiger OS does not have sendfile even
105though we are compiling on Leopard which does.

112NOTES ON COMPILING AND INSTALLING APACHE HTTPD 2.2 FOR GREENSTONE
113*****************************************************************
114
115The Relocatable Apache web server:
116
117
118A) RELEASE KIT needs to run:
119
1201. ./configure --enable-apache-httpd
1212. make
1223. make install
1234. make apache-for-dist
124
125
126B) INSTALLER needs to:
127
1281. Copy the compiled up apache-httpd folder and put it into its
129   destination for installation:
130GSDLHOME/apache-httpd.
131
132X 2. Not necessary:
133cd into there and into the linux (=GSDLOS) folder in there:
134    cd <GSDLHOME>/apache-httpd/linux
135
1363. Run the script install-bindist.sh (in apache-httpd/<GSDLOS> folder)
137   passing as argument: <GSDLHOME>/apache-httpd/linux
138
1394. Now it should be good to go: can run the webserver after
140   configuring the port (in linux/conf/httpd.conf) as follows
141    ./bin/apachectl start
142
143- Change port in httpd.conf file
144- run gs2-server.sh
