Subject [Httpd Wiki] Update of "AIXPlatform" by MichaelFelt
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2012 21:18:46 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:

move files from /etc to /var/httpd/etc as default location for configuration

    * ''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...
+ Ideal:
+  * man pages in /usr/share/man/...
+  * read only, system independent files in /opt/httpd/...
+  * system dependent files in /var/httpd/...
+ so:
+  * no files in /usr/local
   * /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
+  * /var/httpd as base for files that are system dependent and may be modified
+  * /var/httpd/etc as base for config files
   * /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
+  * intention is that using /opt, /var, installation will directly support system WPARs
+  * /etc/httpd is moved to /var/httpd/etc so that only one filesystem is needed. A symbolic
link could be placed in /etc
