A Ready To Use Ocsigen Base Website
Somewhat standard OCaml build process:
oasis setup
ocaml -configure --prefix /some/path
make static
The last command is optional, it builds the statically compiled
version of the web-application.
You may run `make install' to install the ocsibase-manager
application, but it is kind-of useless.
The application `ocsibase-manager` takes care of launching/preparing the
web-server with the right auto-generated configuration files and directories.
It has three commands:
Run in Test Mode
_build/src/app/ocsibase-manager test -help
to run the website in byte-code mode.
ocsibase-manager test -port 8080 -ssl cert.pem privkey-unsec.pem -ssl-dir .
and go to visit http://localhost:8080/
If you indeed provided the SSL certificate you can switch to HTTPS (on
port 8080 - 80 + 443 = 8443).
See Ocsigen's documentation for creating 'test' self-signed SSL certificates:
In "Test Mode” the access-rights management in disabled (all
capability tests return `true`).
Statically Linked Server
After having done a `make static' one can run the ocsibaseserver
application (the statically and natively compiled web-server with the
web-app included).
_build/src/app/ocsibase-manager static -port 8080
Create an RPM
The 'rpm' command creates an RPM containing the statically linked
web-server, config-files, a SysV /etc/init.d scripts.
It uses 'rpmbuild' (tested so far only on CentOS 6).
_build/src/app/ocsibase-manager rpm -rpm-version 0.42 -rpm-release 2 \
-ssl official-cert.pem real-privkey.key -ssl /etc/real-ssl-stuff/
The code in `src/simple_pam/simple_pam_stubs.c` has been extracted from XEN-API's
its license is hence LGPL+OCaml-link-exn.
Everything else is under the ISC license:
How To Change The Name
Clean-up everything you can:
make clean
ocaml -distclean
oasis setup-clean
And then run this command (with some other name than 'mywww'):
find . -type f -not -wholename "*/.git/*" \
-exec sed -i "s/[oO]csibase/mywww/g" {} \;
