Graphical User Interface (GUI) needed to easily configure Apache (httpd.conf)





------- Additional Comments From webmaster33@bigfoot.com  2002-11-30 09:21 -------
As long Apache 2.0 Windows version has a GUI interface to start/stop Apache
service, and it really belongs to Apache 2.0 project, then it is reasoned to
suggest GUI enhancements here on Bugzilla.

I'm not C programmer, so I can not contribute in the project, just an Apache
user. As you say, gui.apache.org is quite out of date. The Apache developers
should at least coordinate the Apache GUI projects, but would be better to
implement the GUI configuration editor into the Apache Monitor itself!
Commanche 3.x GUI was not really successful (at least for me). The DST Apache
Configuration Editor (DSTACE) v1.1 is closer to the desired user friendly GUI. (
http://www.darkphoton.com/darkstar/DSTACE/index.html )

I will contact dev@httpd.apache.org list, but the GUI efforts should be
coordinated here and since naygoya.apache.org/bugzilla HAS the Enhancement
option, this suggestion/enhancement report has a good reason to be posted here
in Bugzilla.

I do not feel that gui.apache.org is a real project, but rather a link
collection, which lists the efforts what was ever done for an Apache GUI goal,
and additionally it is really outdated. Also it is a good idea to refresh the
gui.apache.org. My opinion is that GUI efforts really belongs to Bugzilla & core
Apache 2.0 developments. 

Remember, MS loses market share because it has security holes. But sometime they
will correct them... Once they corrected security holes, they will be able to
increase their market share again. And if Apache GUI effors will be not
refreshed, MS would have chance to also win the webserver war, too :-( 

This is not what we want.  Will Rowe, you should really think about what I wrote.
Please consider Reopening this enhancement bug, and make it as starting point to
coordinate GUI efforts. Or start a new Component named "GUI" or "User Interface"
for Apache httpd-2.0, and move this enhancement bug there.
