Subject [Httpd Wiki] Update of "AIXPlatform" by MichaelFelt
Date Tue, 21 Feb 2012 19:06:34 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Httpd Wiki" for change notification.

The "AIXPlatform" page has been changed by MichaelFelt:

   * If you use a bundled expat, you might find the link of apr-util fails.  The following
change might help:
    * ''perl -p -i.orig -e  \"s#[&#94; ]$curdir/srclib/apr-util/xml/expat/lib/
-lexpat#; s#[&#94; ];\" $PWD/srclib/apr-util/Makefile''
+ == AIX layout discussion ==
+  * /usr/local is not a normal area on AIX, instead...
+  * /opt/httpd for binaries and static files (to be a USR part of an installp package)
+  * /etc/httpd as base for config files, /var/httpd as base for data files, both areas as
ROOT component of an installp package
+  * /usr/share/man for the man pages so that man httpd-foo works directly
+  * further build dependencies (lib and include files) install and-or sym link to /opt/lib
and /opt/include OR set-use symlinks to /usr/lib and /usr/include from whereever they are
actually installed (/opt is proposed as suggested install location
+  * intention is that using /opt, /var, /etc as directories will directly support system
