3.10.3. CGI/FastCGI installation
Alternative CGI configuration:
The alternative CGI configuration directs the webserver to execute the .spy
file itself, not the Spyce engine. This is appropriate if you do not control
Apache on the server you are installing to, e.g., low-end hosting
plans. Each .spy file should have execute
permissions for the web server, and the first line should be:
- Ensure that you have Apache and FastCGI installed and functioning.
- Create a symlink to the command-line executable:
ln -sf /usr/share/spyce/run_spyceCmd.py /usr/bin/spyce
or wherever you have chosen to install it.
- Copy the "Spyce via cgi or fcgi" lines from spyceApache.conf to your
file, and replace the XXX with the appropriate
path to your spyce installation.
- Restart Apache
(Adjust to the correct Spyce installation path as necessary.)
Then add the following line to the httpd.conf, or to
the .htaccess file in the same directory.
AddHandler cgi-script spy
Finally, ensure that the directory itself has the ExecCGI option enabled,
and set cgi_allow_only_redirect to
False in your Spyce configuration module.
For more details, please refer to the Apache documentation, specifically
Apache CGI documentation,
for more information on how to get a standard CGI setup working.
