Apache 2 is now web server

Published by Georgi Sotirov at 2007-05-30 23:01:39 UTC, changed at 2007-06-01 20:20:18 UTC

Starting from now Apache 2 is the web server for Sotirov-BG.Net and the other stuff running on this machine. The transition followed the official Slackware package surfaced on May 19-th, 2007 in the -current branch.

During the almost 4 hours upgrade I was able to tunne the server, so everything now should work as it was working before. I had some problems with file permissions, but the configuration of the server was easy in general. I just had to rewrite the configuration file using snippets from the old one for apache 1.3.

I'm giving my apologies to those who had problems with the site access between 22:00 PM EEST on May 30-th, 2007 and 2:00 AM EEST on May 31-st, 2007 - the time frame of the upgrade. It's all for good ;-)

ViewVC instead of CVSWeb

Published by Georgi Sotirov at 2007-05-11 23:27:00 UTC, changed at 2007-05-11 23:30:00 UTC

Few months ago ViewVC was installed on the server, with the idea to replace CVSWeb (used since 2005-th) at some point in time. This time is now and from today CVSWeb is no longer available. Site public repository will be browsable from the slim interface of ViewVC with features as line numbering and source code highlighting.

The old URLs will be rewritten for some time until all the links in the pages are replaced.

Browse Sotirov-BG.Net public source code now.
