-mod_interchange
-===============
-
-Version: 1.04
-
-Description
------------
-mod_interchange is designed to replace the vlink and tlink programs that
-come with Interchange. The Interchange link protocol is implemented via
-an Apache module which saves us the (small) overhead of the execution
-of a CGI program.
-
-Requires
---------
-Apache 1.3.6 or later
-Any version of Interchange (all the way back to MiniVend 3.12)
-
-Installing
-----------
-The included Makefile builds the module as a DSO object. So if your
-Apache has mod_dso.so configured you can do:
-
-make
-make install
-
-If not, you can copy the file mod_interchange.c to src/modules/extra
-and add the option:
-
---activate-module=src/modules/extra/mod_interchange.c
-
-to the 'configure' command when building Apache.
-
-Configuring Interchange
------------------------
-First you need to decide what URL path you want to point to Interchange,
-and make sure you don't need any files from that same path. For example,
-with the default Construct Something demo you have HTML and images in:
-
-http://www.yourdomain.com/construct/*
-
-So you can't have mod_interchange take over the /construct path. Instead
-use a different name like /store, so that users will access the site with
-a URL like:
-
-http://www.yourdomain.com/store
-
-And Apache will still be able to serve images from /construct/* just fine.
-
-To make such a change, you need to modify the Catalog directive in
-interchange.cfg to look like this:
-
-Catalog construct /var/lib/interchange/construct /store
-
-And update the CGI_URL variable in catalog.cfg by uncommenting and changing
-this line:
-
-Variable CGI_URL /store
-
-Configuring Apache
-------------------
-The module understands one directive which specifies the way to contact
-the Interchange server. The directive InterchangeServer takes either a
-full pathname to the Interchange UNIX socket or a host:port specification
-if you want to use INET mode.
-
-That means you need to add new Location section to your Apache httpd.conf.
-We'll discuss the two kinds of InterchangeServer settings separately.
-
-UNIX socket setup
------------------
-Here is an example httpd.conf section for connecting to Interchange via
-a UNIX socket on the same machine Apache's running on:
-
-<Location /store>
- SetHandler interchange-handler
- InterchangeServer /var/run/interchange/socket
-</Location>
-
-Since you're not using the set-UID CGI executable anymore, you need to
-allow the Apache daemon to read from and write to the socket directly.
-This is slightly tricky because Interchange recreates the socket file each
-time it is run, so you can't just modify the ownership and permissions
-of the socket file directly.
-
-We solve this by setting the group ownership of the directory the socket
-is in to a group Apache is a member of (usually www, apache, http, nobody,
-or similar):
-
-chgrp apache /var/run/interchange
-
-Then we make the directory set-GID so any files created in it will have
-the same group ownership as the directory:
-
-chmod g+srx /var/run/interchange
-
-Obviously you'll need to substitute the correct group for 'apache' and the
-right parent directory of the socket where we show '/var/run/interchange'.
-In a non-RPM Interchange installation the directory is 'etc' inside the
-Interchange software directory (perhaps /usr/local/interchange).
-
-Next you need to add this directive to interchange.cfg:
-
-SocketPerms 0660
-
-This tells Interchange to allow reading from and writing to the socket by
-the group (which our set-GID directory will set to the group the Apache
-daemon is in), instead of the default 0600, which would only allow reading
-and writing by the owner (the Interchange user, usually 'interch').
-
-INET socket setup
------------------
-This is the configuration to connect to Interchange via INET sockets:
-
-<Location /store>
- SetHandler interchange-handler
- InterchangeServer ic.host.com:7786
-</Location>
-
-The port number is optional if you're using the default port 7786.
-
-Support
--------
-Visit http://developer.akopia.com/ to find information on how you can join
-the Interchange mailing lists, browse documentation and mailing list
-archives, and get other support.
-
-History
--------
-mod_interchange is the direct descendant of mod_minivend, created by
-Francis J. Lacoste <francis.lacoste@iNsu.com> at iNsu Innovations Inc.
-in 1999. Thanks, Francis!
-
-Maintenance of the module was taken over by Red Hat (formerly Akopia)
-in February 2001, with Francis's blessing. The only changes we've made
-so far are to rename occurrences of MiniVend to Interchange, expand the
-documentation, and include it in the standard Interchange distribution
-starting with Interchange 4.6.4.
