Apache on Windows with Webinator for Windows

Post by stefan.risse »

Hello there

I have a trouble on the walk of the webinator on Apache for Windows! When wie make a go walk we become an error because him want to make a:

./C:\Lib\Apache\Apache\texis\texis.exe/dowalk=gt C:\........./dispatcher.txt

What I can do that the webinator not generate such a URL!

Greetings from Switzerland!

We've recently found that apache for windows provides a less than ideal CGI environment so texis is getting the wrong information for how to run itself. The following should fix it.

Edit dowalk in an ascii editor such as notepad. Find
<a name=osinfo export>
about 9 lines down from there you'll find
<if $ret eq ""><!-- not vhttpd -->
change it to
<if $ret eq "xx"><!-- not vhttpd -->
then, if you've downloaded the latest scripts (4.0.5), 4 lines below that is
<$patchlevel=$patchlevel "Server">
change it to
<$patchlevel=$patchlevel "Apache">

To summarize. Change this:

<if $ret eq ""><!-- not vhttpd -->
<loop max=1 $cmdlnargs><$texis=$cmdlnargs></loop><!-- texis -->
<else>
<$texis="">
<$patchlevel=$patchlevel "Server">
</if>

to this

<if $ret eq "xx"><!-- not vhttpd -->
<loop max=1 $cmdlnargs><$texis=$cmdlnargs></loop><!-- texis -->
<else>
<$texis="">
<$patchlevel=$patchlevel "Apache">
</if>

Is this suggestion still important for:
Webinator 5.01
Windows 2003 Server
Apache 2.x

?

If you can start a walk from the interface the patch is not needed. If you can't and get a similar error as mentioned above you probably need the patch.
