mod_porter.c Merge commit 'BubDZombie/master' Dec 16, 2009


mod_porter parses multipart and your rails app just gets a hash like :

“file”=> {"content_type"=>"application/octet-stream",
“signature” => ’sodsfsdfjhsdfjhsdfjhsdfjhsdjfh’}

Apache config options :

- Porter On|Off

Enable/disbale mod_porter per vhost

- PorterSharedSecret

Secret key to sign the hash generated by mod_porter.

- PorterPermission 0×0666

Default file permission for temporary files created by mod_porter.

- PorterDir /tmp/porter

Optional directory for temporary files created by mod_porter (needs to be writable by the apache process).
