Dead in the Water - Need Apache to work on Mac - SOLVED

Post by DR White » Sat Jan 16, 2016 12:52 pm

I am sorry for this repetitive post!

I am using a Macbook pro running OS X 10.10.5

I am a very passionate person and once I start something, I cannot quite (it is a defect in my DNA). I cannot sleep, until I got closer to my goal.
I am running the LC sever successfully from command line.

My wife is very upset with my determination to do this maybe impossible task, but If someone is running OS X 10.10 and successfully has Apache running as a local host,
Please, Please share your Apache conf files.

I have googled this issue till the battery on my Mac went dead, without success.

Thanks in advance so very much!!

David

----------------------------------------

Trying to setup Apache to explore LC database capabilities. I have used LC on several small projects with good success, but I know very little about how to use databases. I have downloaded the LC sever and it has tested good from the command line. Now I am trying to get the apache to work. I have created a user file the /etc/apache2/ directory and put the test.lc in /Users/drwhite777/Sites.

When I try to go to http://localhost/drwhite777/test.lc with Safari,
I get "The requested URL /drwhite777/test.lc was not found on this server."

My apache user configuration file is as follows:
<Directory “/Users/drwhite777/Sites/">
Options Indexes MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
AddHandler livecode-script .lc
Action livecode-script /livecode-cgi/livecode-server
</Directory>

<Directory "/Users/drwhite777/Documents/LC Server/LiveCodeServer-8_0_0_dp_12-Mac">
Options ExecCGI
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

ScriptAlias /livecode-cgi/livecode-server </Users/drwhite777/Documents/LC Server/LiveCodeServer-8_0_0_dp_12-Mac>/livecode-server

----------------------------------------------------------------------

MY test.lc contains the following:

<html>

<head>
<title>My LiveCode Server Test Page</title>
</head>

<body>
<h1>My LiveCode Server Test Page</h1>
<?lc
put "<p>Hello World! from LiveCode Server</p>"
put "<p>The date is" && the date & "</p>"
?>
</body>

</html>

Can anyone tell me what might be wrong?

Thanks,

David

Can you post your config file in its entirety? Including the name of the file.

Like:

testing.com.conf

Code: Select all

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin admin@email.com
ServerName testing.com
ServerAlias  www.testing.com

	DocumentRoot /Users/drwhite777/Sites

	<Directory //Users/drwhite777/Sites>
		Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
		AllowOverride all
		Order allow,deny
		allow from all
    		DirectoryIndex index.lc
                Require all granted
	</Directory>

	ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
	<Directory "/usr/lib/cgi-bin">
		AllowOverride None
		Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
		Order allow,deny
		Allow from all
                Require all granted
	</Directory>

	ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log

	# Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
	# alert, emerg.
	LogLevel warn

	CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

    Alias /doc/ "/usr/share/doc/"
    <Directory "/usr/share/doc/">
        Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride All
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all
    </Directory>

</VirtualHost>

Also, what happens when you go to localhost in your browser?

It has gotten worse.
Now when I put localhost/drwhite777/test.lc into Safari, I get a message that Safari cannot connect to server "localhost"

GNU nano 2.0.6 File: httpd.conf
#
# This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file. It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/> for detailed information.
# In particular, see
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/directives.html>
# for a discussion of each configuration directive.
#
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do. They're here only as hints or reminders. If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned.
#
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path. If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/access_log"
# with ServerRoot set to "/usr/local/apache2" will be interpreted by the
# server as "/usr/local/apache2/logs/access_log", whereas "/logs/access_log"
# will be interpreted as '/logs/access_log'.

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path. If you point
# ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to specify a local disk on the
# Mutex directive, if file-based mutexes are used. If you wish to share the
# same ServerRoot for multiple httpd daemons, you will need to change at
# least PidFile.
#
ServerRoot "/usr"

#
# Mutex: Allows you to set the mutex mechanism and mutex file directory
# for individual mutexes, or change the global defaults
#
# Uncomment and change the directory if mutexes are file-based and the default
# mutex file directory is not on a local disk or is not appropriate for some
# other reason.
#
# Mutex default:/private/var/run

#
# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.
#
#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 80

Are you restarting apache after any changes you make?

Code: Select all

sudo apachectl restart
If you have some errors in your config file, apache will sometimes not restart, so you have to look in the error log to see what the error is, then (after you fix your erros) you have to:

sudo apachectl start

I am back to "The requested URL /drwhite777/test.lc was not found on this server."

I made a change to the following:

GNU nano 2.0.6 File: httpd-userdir.conf

# Settings for user home directories
#
# Required module: mod_authz_core, mod_authz_host, mod_userdir

#
# UserDir: The name of the directory that is appended onto a user's home
# directory if a ~user request is received. Note that you must also set
# the default access control for these directories, as in the example below.
#
UserDir Sites

#
# Control access to UserDir directories. The following is an example
# for a site where these directories are restricted to read-only.
#

############# I had to put a hash mark in front of the stament below for me NOT to get "server not found"

#Include /private/etc/apache2/users/*.conf

My wife has been very patient with me and now I MUST take her out to dinner.


I hope you can continue to help me,

I continue go through the LIveCode tutorial "How do I Install LiveCode Server?" over and over.
Also googling Apache setups.

Again, I am using OS X 10.10.5

I might be getting close.

Now when I enter "http://localhost/~drwhite777/test.lc" I get:
Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /~drwhite777/test.lc on this server.

What can I do to resolve this message?

Thanks,

David

Again, I am using OS X 10.10.5

If anyone else is running OS X 10.10.5 AND has been successful in running the LiveCode server with Apache,
Please!
Please!

Share your httpd.conf, httpd-userdir.conf and “UserName".conf files.

Thanks,

David

Given the DocumentRoot you showed earlier, (/Users/drwhite777/Sites), Apache will use that for localhost/. So the path following localhost/ in your URL has too much stuff in it.

For starters, "~" is user-specific, and Apache generally runs as www-data or something like that (depending on the system configuration), so "~" won't mean anything to an account that has no home folder.

Even if you replace "~" with the full path, that would only work is the DocumentRoot was "/", something you'd probably never want to do (and in this case safely didn't).

So if my hunch is correct try this url:

http://localhost/test.lc

FourthWorld,

When I entered "http://localhost/test.lc" I get "The requested URL file /test.lc not found on this server.

The file test.lc is located in /Users/drwhite777/Sites.

Someone asked me if Sites was a SymLink folder. What does that mean?

Thanks,

David

Saman Sjr,

That was a great web site and I made the suggested changes. I confirmed permissions, but still the file cannot be found on server error message is displayed.

Thanks,

David

Great News!

* LiveCode Server works well, when tested from command line

* Apache works well, when tested locally

-- But when I try running the test.lc from browser (http://localhost/~drwhite777/test.lc)

I get:

My LiveCode Server Test Page

Hello World! from LiveCode Server
" put "
The date is" && the date & "

" ?>

Instead Of:


My LiveCode Server Test Page

Hello World! from LiveCode Server

The date is 1/18/16

----------------------------------------------------------
Its like the LiveCode script is not being executed by the LiveCode server.

I have checked the file path of the LiveCode-server several times.

Any thoughts on what could be the problem?

Thanks,

David

I think this line :
ScriptAlias /livecode-cgi/livecode-server </Users/drwhite777/Documents/LC Server/LiveCodeServer-8_0_0_dp_12-Mac>/livecode-server
in your drwhite777.conf shouldn't include the "<" character

Saman Sjr,

I now have the following username.conf:

<Directory "/Users/drwhite777/Sites/">
Options Indexes MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
AddHandler livecode-script .lc
Action livecode-script /livecode-cgi/livecode-server
</Directory>

<Directory "/Users/drwhite777/Documents/LC Server/LiveCodeServer-8_0_0_dp_12-Mac">
Options ExecCGI
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

ScriptAlias /Users/drwhite777/Documents/LC Server/LiveCodeServer-8_0_0_dp_12-Mac/livecode-server
--------------------------

But still same results.

Thanks,

David
