Projects / Aphid


Aphid (the Apache/Perl HTTP Installation Daemon) provides a quick facility for compiling and installing the Apache Web server with support for SSL via mod_ssl, and with the embedded Perl interpreter provided by mod_perl. It downloads, compiles, and installs the software into the directory of your choice. Aphid places emphasis on providing an intuitive, browser-based interface and keeping a tiny distribution footprint. To date Aphid has been tested on Rehat Linux 6 and 6.2, FreeBSD 4.0, and Solaris 2.6 and 7.

            Release Notes: Dependencies on the RSARef library have been removed. A problem with blank lines with spaces slipping by the host queue regex has been fixed. A numbering error in the log message when a remote file has to be requeued for HTTP download has been corrected. The install writes its log in the same directory as it's invoked (instead of under /lib/install). Numerous third-party releases have been brought up to date with the currently released stable version. The documentation has been edited.
