Subject Using Apache::Test for testing web clients instead of servers
Date Thu, 29 Jul 2010 20:27:23 GMT
Hello list.

I'm trying to use Apache::Test for testing a web client
(fusioninventory-agent, if that matters), not a server component.
Basically, I have to test the agent can contact a web server with http
or https, directly or through a proxy, check ssl cert, etc...

So far, I figured out to launch a standard http server to run my tests as:

my $config = Apache::TestConfig->new(
    httpd => '/usr/sbin/httpd',
my $server = $config->server();


# do some tests


This is enough to automatically generate everything needed, and work
perfectly. However, I can't figure out how to run another server with
ssl support, using a static certificate/key. My understanding of the
code tells me I have to pass additional args to the creator, such as:

    httpd => '/usr/sbin/httpd',
    scheme => 'https',
    ssl_module_name => 'mod_ssl'

It seems I also have to pass additional vhost configuration, with a
manually crafted configuration file, such as:
<IfModule mod_ssl.c>
    <VirtualHost localhost:@port@>
	ServerName localhost

	SSLEngine on
	SSLCertificateFile @t_conf@/ssl/crt/good.pem
	SSLCertificateKeyFile @t_conf@/ssl/key/good.pem

However, it doesn't work as expected:

waiting 60 seconds for server to start: ..
waiting 60 seconds for server to start: ok (waited 1 secs)
server localhost.localdomain:8529 started
server localhost.localdomain:8530 listening (8529)

still waiting for server to warm up:
the server is down, giving up after 61 secs

The error log doesn't tell much:

What am I doing wrong here ?
BOFH excuse #266:
