Subject Apache 2.0.27 and 2.0.28 RPM available
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2001 12:40:55 GMT
Ok, now I'm subscribed I could announce, more easily, 
some works related to Apache 2.0.

Apaceh 2.0.27 alpha and 2.0.28 beta are available at :

To have them installable on a Linux boxes, together
with good-old Apache 1.3.x, executable, config, 
directories have been renamed and listen port 
changed (8092 and 8093 for SSL).

config live in : /etc/httpd2/conf/

rotate :

init stuff :

modules in :

manuals in /usr/man/man1 & /usr/man/man8 and
file renamed to name2 : ie: apxs = apxs2

Documents in :


exec in : 


BTW: From my RPM works I detect many stuff which could (should)
     be added :

     - Modify apachectl and apxs to use @sbindir@/@progname@ instead
       of @prefix@/bin/@progname@. A security concert on many distrib 
       (ie Redhat which use /usr/sbin for httpd)

     - update apxs to let user use it's own installed libtool instead of
       the one in $prefix/build.
     - add a --with-ssl-port as we have --with-port

     - have httpd-std.conf supporting datadir and config.layout.
       For example, htdocs location in conf file, still didn't follow what
       been set in config.layout.

     - same thing for logs dir 'logs/*' , runtime files (access_log,
error_log, cgi_sock...)

     The general goal is to try to have Apache 2.0 more FHS compliant
without having 
     to make huge patchs (or perl replace) at each release ;)
