Installation in a web server

  • Base the server on the www subdirectory of this repo.
  • Check that your server is supplying the env vars CONTEXT_DOCUMENT_ROOT and SCRIPT_URI so that Config.dirRoot and Config.webRoot in www/scripts/ get set correctly. Apache 2 does this by default. Python's cgi.test() is useful here.
  • Add redirects as follows (in Apache 2 notation):
RewriteRule ^/list$ /scripts/
RewriteRule ^/binds/(.+)$ /scripts/$1
RewriteRule ^/configs/([a-z][a-z])([^/]+)$ /configs/$1/$1$2
RewriteRule ^/devices$ /scripts/
RewriteRule ^/device/(.+)$ /scripts/$1
