NAME

generate_apacheconf - Create the apache config files needed for EPrints

User Comments


SYNOPSIS

generate_apacheconf [options]

User Comments


DESCRIPTION

This script generates the apache config files which will be used by EPrints. In the simple case all you need to do is run this script then add a line to your main apache configuration file - often, but not always, /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf

Include /opt/eprints3/cfg/apache.conf
 

Or elsewhere if you installed EPrints somewhere other than /opt/eprints3. This file then uses the "Include" directive to include all relevant apache config files from this EPrints installation.

By default the virtualhost directives are

VirtualHost *
 

But the * can be changed to something different by editing the virtualhost option in SystemSettings.pm

User Comments


EPRINTS/archives/ARCHIVEDIR/var/auto-apache.conf

This file contains all the configuration directives needed for an repository. This is where the bulk of the configuration appears, the clever stuff, if you will. This file should not be edited by hand.

EPRINTS/archives/ARCHIVEDIR/var/auto-secure.conf

Only created if the repository has a securehost configured. This file contains all the configuration options that need to be included into the secure server virtualhost.

User Comments


EPRINTS/archives/ARCHIVEDIR/cfg/apachevhost.conf

This file is not updated if it already exists, it is included into the virutalhost in auto-apache.conf so that you can a couple of additional directives if you need to. For example, redirects or additional log directives.
