Here are some issues I've noticed with tools/ on 1.1.1

  • stat -c is not portable to FreeBSD, you might want to also try stat -f '%u:%g'
  • In your perl command lines to get VIRTUAL_HOSTS_DIR and others, you also need the switch -I${FOSWIKI_HOME}/lib/CPAN/lib (at least that's what I used to get it to work)
  • In your copy_web() script, it seems there is no "Main" in the pub directory in a fresh install (the only thing I found in ${FOSWIKI_HOME}/pub was "System". This causes the script to fail in the middle.

I hope this is the right place to put this.

Dave. I keep on moving your signature and COMMENT tag below your text. The COMMENT field only works of it is AFTER your text and signature.

I'm getting bitten by stat -c and the copy_web issues under FreeBSD as well, today.

Hi, can you please try the attached patch and write a similar if statement that "detects" FreeBSD's stat and does the appropriate call?

Thanks Antonio - I've updated your patch and attached it here.

  • Made copy of pub directory check if it exists
  • Creates .htpasswd file.
But major fix is to convert this to a Configure wizard. That avoids the shell incompatibilities with freebsd.
