Subject Writing a apache module
Date Thu, 25 Apr 2002 09:55:01 GMT

I need an advise. I'm going to write an apache module for internet 
advertisung. This module will deliver creatives (banners, HTML code, 
Flash stuff), count the views and clicks of them, and make some other 
reports. Apache module programming is completely new to me, but I have 
expierence in C programming.
Well, my idea of the thing is to handle HTTP requests in a particular 
format. This format could look for example like this:

GET /myadserver/event/view/banner_id/123456


GET /myadserver/event/click/banner_id/123456/target/

The module should handle all requests starting with /myadserver, then 
parse the request string, then redirect the request to the 
corresponding banner or the target site, and the update several report 
files. Also: it should be possible to determine the locations of the 
creatives and report files in httpd.conf.
At the moment I don't exacly know what hook funtions are to use for 
this. I primarly have the translate_handler function in mind, but is it 
the only one I need?

Thanks in advance.
