This question about Installation of Foswiki, Configuration: More info required

Apache2 won`t parse bin/configure

Hello,

i have the problem, that apache2 only shows a plain text, if i try to load bin/configure.

My main Foswikisite shows up, but if i try to load /bin/configure directly or from there, only plain text comes up.

I tried a lot of different configuration option from Apache Configuration Generator, but nothing works.

I've no Apache2 Errors.

My System:

OpenSuse 13.1

Apache2 2.4.6

Use mod_fcgid

I do not know, how i could manage it to start Foswiki.

Any help appreciated

Poul Poulsen

here is my foswiki.conf generated from ApacheGenerator:

Please try without using FCGI for now. You'll need to get foswiki initially configured, and install the optional FastCGIEngineContrib before enabling fcgi in apache. Unfortunately we don't ship the fastcgi or mod_perl engines by default currently. However regardless of that, it should not impact configure, since configure should run with cgi, not fastcgi under this release of Foswiki.

The code SetHandler cgi-script should cause Apache to run the script under the perl CGI. Though I see you are using Apache 2.4. There might be some configuration differences between 2.2 and 2.4, I don't have any test systems running 2.4 to test the results of the config generator. But if you are getting plain text, then something is not matching in your configuration to trigger CGI processing.

In your apache configuration, you need to make sure that perl CGI is enabled, not just fastcgi. See Apache 2.4 CGI docs for information on the apache side of things.

Hello, thanks for the quick answer. Unfortunately it doesn`t change anything. For simpification i only load module cgi, no fastcgi or else.

Here is the changed foswiki.conf from Apache config generator. Are there any special chnages in using Apache 2.4? How could i see, why Apache won`t parse /bin/configure?

Any clues?

Thanks Poul

I have no idea about migration to apache 2.4. Everything I have is running 2.2. You might try asking on an Apache support forum. I've reviewed the Apache 2.4 documentation for changes in mod_cgi / mod_cgid, and nothing jumps out as what might be wrong. The ScriptAlias and SetHandler directives are still in use.

If I get a chance this weekend I'll try to download and install OpenSuSE on a vm here and see if I can get foswiki running.

By the way... It would be best if you pasted configurations in a verbatim block: Probably easiest to do using the "Edit wiki text" plain text editor. Makes the config much easier to read, and you don't have to deal with line wrapping.
<verbatim>
... paste config here

It turns out that http://foswiki.org/ was just updated to Apache 2.4. It's running foswiki without issues. We had to change some of the access control directives, but those were causing 403 access denied errors, and not issues with cgi execution.

Have you reviewed SystemRequirements and made sure all the perl dependencies are installed?

-- GeorgeClark - 04 Oct 2014

Working through install of OpenSuse 13.1, it looks as though it enables AppArmor by default. This is similar to SELinux extensions and will probably block execution of CGI scripts by default. You could either place it into warning mode, or disable it, or create a profile to allow cgi execution. I'm not far enough along to explain how yet.

-- GeorgeClark - 04 Oct 2014

I got everything running on SuSE 13.1
  • Installed as a web server, and also selected development and perl packages
  • Had to configure firewall to allow port 80, yast took care of it. Though eventually I just disabled the firewall
  • AppArmor came up enforcing. I changed all the rules to Complain mode, however that didn't seem to be necessary,
  • Configured Apace to make sure that cgi and perl modules were enabled.
  • Ran apache config generator for my vhost (wiki.site.com) port 80, path to foswiki: /srv/www/vhosts/foswiki, Chose TemplateLogin, and enabled Short URLs. Set path for foswki to just the single slash.
  • Expanded Foswiki tarball into /srv/www/vhosts/ and then renamed it to foswiki.
  • Changed ownership - chown wwwrun:www -R foswiki of the foswiki directory.
  • Copied the output of ApacheConfigGenerator into /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/mysite.conf
  • Restarted apache apache2ctl -k restart Had a couple of errors:
    • Deleted config line Listen 80 Not needed for suse vhosts
    • Deleted the 3 lines AuthUserFile, AuthName, and AuthType since I'm not using Apache auth and I'm not protecting configure. (Not recommended .. but keeping it simple for now)
    • Added line: UseCanonicalName Off
    • Had to edit the Apache configuration (used yast) and enabled the Rewrite module. Otherwise short URLs configuration errors out.
  • Restarted apache again, browsed to http://wiki.site.com/bin/configure and configure came up.
    • One missing dependency reported. CPAN:HTML::Tree. Installed from shell: zypper in perl-HTML-Tree

Did you put your ApacheConfigGenerator output in /etc/apache2/vhosts.d file named somename.conf I'm not sure what else to suggest.

-- GeorgeClark - 04 Oct 2014

Hello, thanks for the info! it is very usefull, but unfortunately for me negativ. Starting configure shows the plain text, no execution frown, sad smile i check my apache config, and it seems for me that i do have configured well. rewrite on perl on cgi on

i cant find a yast configuration for apache? have to check yast installation, which modul i have to install - hmmh.

here is my foswiki.conf.

The page comes up as before, i can read the instructions, but no execution ...

For the moment i will gave up and wait until something new comes up with suse, or a rpm package for foswiki.

Thanks very much Poul

-- PoulPoulsen - 06 Oct 2014

Poul, This really is a configuration issue in Apache or SuSE. Nothing new in Foswiki packages is going to fix it.
  • The Yast configuration for the http server is listed under http server, not apache. It is part of SuSE, nothing you have to install.
  • Where did you put that foswiki.conf file you posted?
  • Try issuing apache2ctl -t -D DUMP_VHOSTS Does that list you foswiki vhost there?
  • I suspect you will have to use a different host than "localhost", That's the name of the default host.

-- GeorgeClark - 06 Oct 2014

hello,

i`m quite sure, that it is a apache / security problem from the distribution, but because i don`t know how foswiki depends on this problem, i will wait for other help or rpm or updates. btw, i have to install this yastmodul, but no problem.

Therefore i will wait, read about it and perhaps the rpm usable for opsensuse 13.1 is coming. Then the configuration issues are mostly gone, i hope.

I put the foswiki.conf under /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/ I can`t use another host, because do not have a website. Will test on my laptop, thats all for the moment. here is the output of apache2ctl -t -D DUMP_VHOSTS Hope it helps to find out. Will test again.

I'm pretty confident that there will not be SuSE RPM's coming for Foswiki. We have no developers working on that. I was able to get Foswiki working on a new SuSE 13.1 install, no issues. You definitely have an apache configuration issue.
