Yosemite, Server.app and LiveCode Server

Post by revRider » Tue May 05, 2015 2:21 am

Good Day.

Does anyone know if there is new instruction for configuring LiveCode Server, on a Yosemite Server? Could you post a URL? Just upgraded one of our servers to 10.10 running Yosemite Server APP and I was surprised to see, normal 'configuration' doesn't work.

Yes, I have web services configured and turned on. Everything else it working. Don't know if there is a new way to configure CGI-Bin... Tried to edit httpd.config, but even that changed... Rest of world doesn't seem to have noticed Apple's internal changes to the server. I DID, and I didn't like it.. <sigh>

Oh well.
Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.

I am running LiveCode Server on OS X Yosemite. When I upgraded to the Yosemite, I had to make some minor changes to the http.config file as OS X now ships with Apache 2.4 whereas previously it shipped with Apache 2.2. The Apache config syntax seems to have changed between versions 2.2 and 2.4.

I can't remember which changed so here are the entries that relate to LiveCode in my httpd.conf file:

Code: Select all


LoadModule mime_module libexec/apache2/mod_mime.so
LoadModule cgi_module libexec/apache2/mod_cgi.so
LoadModule actions_module libexec/apache2/mod_actions.so
LoadModule alias_module libexec/apache2/mod_alias.so

<IfModule alias_module>
ScriptAlias /livecode-cgi/ "<path to dir where LiveCode Server is stored with trailing />"
</IfModule>

<Directory "<path to dir where LiveCode Server is stored without trailing />">
    AllowOverride None
    Options +ExecCGI
    Require all granted
</Directory>

<IfModule mime_module>
    AddHandler lcscript .lc
    Action lcscript /livecode-cgi/<name of LiveCode Server exacutable>
</IfModule>



Hope this helps

Peter

Saw / Found that online..

Tried a few dozen combinations, never got it to work..

Everything works fine on our older 10.6 servers, but not the 10.10..

We are still using the older revserver :
CGI-Executables/revserver/revserver

Executable is the last revserver.

The php code had <?rev and <irev changed all those to <?lc ...

Our code is fine, works fine on servers at other sites (older 10.6 as well). (School system)

Where are you editing the config files for apache? If you're doing it in the /etc hierarchy, that's not where the server app files are stored. Look in /Library/Server/web/config/apache2/ and dig around for what you need.
