compile lua on windows

Grab the “newest” (2008) http://www.lua.org/ftp/lua-5.1.4.tar.gz
unpack it. Compiling with VC++ is very easy.

Open the x64 %comspec% /E:ON /V:ON /T:0E /K “C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Bin\SetEnv.cmd” /Release
or x86 command line
%comspec% /k “”C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat”” x86

browse to lua folder and run

etc\luavs
copy /y src\*.* .\

Done!

reverse proxy for utorrent part 2

In my last post about utorrent (µtorrent) I was frustrated that I wasn’t able to change the url from /gui/ to /tor/
Woot! In apache 2.3 which will be apache 2.4 and I think it will be released in early 2011 the proxy module is much better and there it works to have a different URL :-) Even as ALPHA or BETA version the new apache rocks a lot and runs stable. In condition with mod_fcgid it is real cool technology e.g. running PHP separated form apache that allows to run different PHP version of the server in vhosts or directories. Also running a non thread safe PHP version. Speed! IPv6 would be fine, but the offered patches are not applied to trunk :-/There is an annoying bug in mod_fcgid. I’m glad I found a fix for it (help from Tom Donovan and Sob).

Disable AllowOverride (htaccess to httpd.conf)

AllowOverride is one of the things that slow down a lot. Disabling it makes apache faster. It is a horror to migrate all .htaccess files by hand. BUT here is a PHP script from Paul Reinheimer which makes it realy easy :-)

Get it htaccess.php

tune your server!

Preparing mod_svn for compiling on windows

Well I didn’t manage it to compile mod_svn without the apache compiled source tree, but than it works fine and fast. Also Python 3 did not work. So I took 2.7
Assuming that OpenSSL 1.0.0a and zlib are compiled in that source tree as well.

C:\python27\python gen-make.py -t vcproj --vsnet-version=2008 --with-httpd=C:\build\httpd-2.2.x-sni-dev-ipv6
--with-openssl=C:\build\httpd-2.2.x-sni-dev-ipv6\srclib\openssl
 --with-zlib=C:\build\httpd-2.2.x-sni-dev-ipv6\srclib\zlib --with-apr=C:\build\httpd-2.2.x-sni-dev-ipv6\srclib\apr

Than just open subversion_vcnet.sln with Visual C++ Express Edition. Ignore all warnings about solution folders. Choose the __ALL__ project. Than change from debug to release. Start!

My sample config

LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
LoadModule dav_fs_module modules/mod_dav_fs.so

LoadModule auth_digest_module modules/mod_auth_digest.so
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so

<Location /svn/>
  DAV svn

  SVNListParentPath on
  SVNParentPath /Repositories/
  SVNIndexXSLT "/svnindex.xsl"
  SVNPathAuthz on
  AuthzSVNAccessFile "C:/Repositories/authz"

  AuthName "Subversion Repositories"
  AuthType Basic
  AuthUserFile "C:/Repositories/htpasswd"

  require valid-user
</Location>

Changed to event mpm

I made some testing on my dev machine and liked event mpm. So I installed it here. I noticed that  the event mpm closes the connections faster than worker mpm. Some download tests sadisfied me. Less memory usage and faster serving :-) For now I keeped the settings from worker mpm. I’ll look for tweaking in the next days.

Different to the docs event mpm works fine with SSL.

sudo apt-get install apache2-mpm-event libapache2-mod-fcgid

Also the serving PHP over fcgid is nice.  The implementation of PHP over fcgid in the older post.
