Subject About the order of the processing of the http request
Date Thu, 02 Apr 2009 11:28:29 GMT

Hi, everyone.

I new to modlue developemnt of the Apache http server, and I have googled
this question and can't find the answer. Hope you can help me. Thx.

I am confused with the order of the processing of the http request.

Without the input/output filters, the order seems quick clear, when one http
request comes, it will go through different kinds of hooks  like "map to
storage", "fixups" and "handler". And we can set some handlers to deal with
these hooks.

But what's the order after the introduction of the filter mechanism´╝č

When will the input filters begin to work?
After the handlers of the fixups hook has been called and before the
handlers of the "handler" hook begin to work?
Or in some other order?
And how can we specify the order of the input filters?

And for the output filters, when did they begin to work? Before or after the
"log transaction" hook ?
And also how can we specify the order of the output filters?

Thank you very much for your help!
