SYNOPSIS

  inherit httpd

DESCRIPTION

The Apache Web Server is an HTTP server which can be extended through plugins, known as DSOs, to support all sorts of tasks, scripting languages, and more. DSOs use the ".so" extension, even on platforms which use DLLs.

The purpose of httpd.cygclass is to provide functions and definitions for building DSOs for the Cygwin Apache HTTP Server packages. Cygwin packages doing so should use the "httpd-" prefix before the canonical package name. Because there is no consistent DSO source buildsystem, src_compile and src_install must be defined yourself.

EXAMPLES

Apache module source packages do not have a single system. Some packages are autoconf-based:

    inherit httpd
    
    NAME="httpd-mod_clamav"
    VERSION=0.23
    RELEASE=1
    CATEGORY="Web"
    SUMMARY="ClamAV filter module for Apache HTTP Server"
    DESCRIPTION="mod_clamav is an Apache HTTP Server filter which scans the content
    delivered by the proxy module (mod_proxy) for viruses using the Clamav
    virus scanning engine."
    HOMEPAGE="http://software.othello.ch/mod_clamav/"
    SRC_URI="http://software.othello.ch/mod_clamav/mod_clamav-${VERSION}.tar.gz"
    SRC_DIR="mod_clamav-${VERSION}"
    PATCH_URI="0.22-cygwin-layout.patch"
    
    src_compile() {
      cd ${S}
      cygautoreconf
      cd ${B}
      httpd_mod_compile
    }
    
    src_install() {
      cd ${B}
      dohttpdmod mod_clamav
      dohttpdconf ${S}/sample.conf ${S}/safepatterns.conf
    }

Other simple module just ship the sources without a build system:

    inherit httpd
    
    NAME="httpd-mod_geoip"
    VERSION=1.2.8
    RELEASE=1
    CATEGORY="Web"
    SUMMARY="Apache HTTP Server GeoIP module"
    DESCRIPTION="mod_geoip2 is an Apache HTTP Server module for finding the country and
    city that a web request originated from.  It uses the GeoIP library and
    database to perform the lookup."
    HOMEPAGE="http://www.maxmind.com/app/mod_geoip"
    SRC_URI="http://www.maxmind.com/download/geoip/api/mod_geoip2/mod_geoip2_${VERSION}.tar.gz"
    SRC_DIR="mod_geoip2_${VERSION}"
    
    src_compile() {
      lndirs
      cd ${B}
      httpd_apxs_compile *.c -lGeoIP
    }
    
    src_install() {
      cd ${B}
      dohttpdmod mod_geoip.la
      httpd_loadmodules
      dodoc README.php
    }

httpd_mod_compile

[ Top ] [ httpd.cygclass ] [ Compile Functions ]

SYNOPSIS

  httpd_mod_compile [CONFIGURE_FLAGS]

DESCRIPTION

Build a DSO which uses an autoconf/libtool buildsystem by calling cygconf and cygmake with some Apache-specific flags. Arguments, if any, are passed as configure flags.

NOTE

This is very generic and may not work in all cases.


httpd_apxs_compile

[ Top ] [ httpd.cygclass ] [ Compile Functions ]

SYNOPSIS

  httpd_apxs_compile [CFLAGS] SOURCES [LIBS]

DESCRIPTION

Uses HTTPD_APXS to build a DSO from one or more .c source files which ship without their own build system.

ARGUMENTS


dohttpdconf

[ Top ] [ httpd.cygclass ] [ Install Functions ]

SYNOPSIS

  dohttpdconf CONF_FILE [CONF_FILE] ...

DESCRIPTION

Installs additional Apache configuration files.

NOTE

All files passed to dohttpdconf will be concenated into one file named HTTPD_MOD_NAME.conf. Therefore, this must only be called once.


dohttpdmod

[ Top ] [ httpd.cygclass ] [ Install Functions ]

SYNOPSIS

  dohttpdmod DSO [DSO] ...

DESCRIPTION

Installs one or more DSOs into $D/HTTPD_LIBEXECDIR. DSOs are usually a .la libtool library (whether build with httpd_mod_compile or httpd_apxs_compile), but may also be a .so DLL if built without libtool.


httpd_loadmodules

[ Top ] [ httpd.cygclass ] [ Install Functions ]

SYNOPSIS

  httpd_loadmodules

DESCRIPTION

Creates a LoadModule configuration snippet in HTTPD_SYSCONFMODULESDIR. This means that users need not do anything more than install the package in order to enable the DSO. For modules which require further configuration, create a complete file and use dohttpdconf to install it.
