Apache 2 v2.2.2 available for eComStation
I've just uploaded a build of Apache2 v2.2.2 to http://smedley.info/os2ports.html
The Apache HTTP Server Project is an effort to develop and maintain an open-source HTTP server for modern operating systems including UNIX and Windows NT. The goal of this project is to provide a secure, efficient and extensible server that provides HTTP services in sync with the current HTTP standards.
Apache has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April 1996. The November 2005 Netcraft Web Server Survey found that more than 70% of the web sites on the Internet are using Apache, thus making it more widely used than all other web servers combined.
The Apache HTTP Server is a project of the Apache Software Foundation.
The OS/2 build was built using Innotek GCC v3.3.5 CSD1 version and requires the runtime dll from ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0.6.0-ga2.zip
A number of bugs are resolved in this build, including:
- erroneous error messages "[error] (OS 10004)Unknown error -1: apr_socket_accept" in logs
- httpd.pid not being removed when Apache2 is closed.
- various changes in the Apache Portable Runtime
Note that the issues with PHP failing if modules other than modphp4/modphp5 are loaded are still unresolved.
General feedback can be provided to firstname.lastname@example.org, bug reports should go to http://mantis.smedley.info
Thanks to Brian Havard for doing most of the hard work to get Apache2 to run with EMX, and to Knut for making GCC/libc so great!
