Errors on mod_backhand install process

Let me preface this by saying I'm a complete linux newb, and I'm in
the process of reading many man pages and howtos.
The problem is with the install, i think.
I do a complete vanilla install of debian 'woody'.
I don't install the webserver when prompted for installing things with tasksel.
I take most of the defaults when installing.
I grab apache_1.3.6.tar.gz and mod_backhand1.2.2.tar.tar from my ftp server.
I then start the install process below:

# cd /var/tmp
# ls
apache_1.3.6.tar.gz
mod_backhand-1.2.2.tar.gz
# gzip -d < apache_1.3.6.tar.gz | tar xf -
# gzip -d < mod_backhand1.2.2.tar.gz | tar xf -
# ls
apache_1.3.6
apache_1.3.6.tar.gz
mod_backhand
mod_backhand1.2.2.tar.gz
# cd mod_backhand
# ./precompile ../apache_1.3.6/
Copying source into apache tree...
Copying sample cgi script and logo into htdocs directory...
Adding to Apache's Configuration.tmpl...
Nullifying extra shared libraries for Linux
Modifying httpd.conf-dist...
creating insertion....
integrating insertion with original...
Updating Makefile.tmpl...

Now change to the apache source directory:
../apache_1.3.6/
And do a ./configure...

If you want to enable backhand (why would you have done this is you didn't)
then add: --enable-module=backhand --enable-shared=backhand
to your apache configure command. For eaxmple, I use:

./configure --prefix=/var/backhand --enable-module=so \
--enable-module=rewrite --enable-shared=rewrite \
--enable-module=speling --enable-shared=speling \
--enable-module=info --enable-shared=info \
--enable-module=include --enable-shared=include \
--enable-module=status --enable-shared=status \
--enable-module=backhand --enable-shared=backhand
# cd ../apache_1.3.6
# ./configure --prefix=/var/backhand --enable-module=so \
--enable-module=rewrite --enable-shared=rewrite \
--enable-module=speling --enable-shared=speling \
--enable-module=info --enable-shared=info \
--enable-module=include --enable-shared=include \
--enable-module=status --enable-shared=status \
--enable-module=backhand --enable-shared=backhand

This is a copy of what my install looked like. The only difference
with this and the Help: compiling mod_backhand document is that I use
backhand1.2.2 instead of 1.0 so the files/directories are different.
And the last 2 lines are switched around. I have /standard first and
/backhand second. It's opposite that in the help document, sure that
doesn't matter.

I then type:
# make

This does a bunch of junk I dont know about. But looks ok until the
last 15 lines or so, I'll include them:
mod_backhand.c: In function 'build_request_headers':
mod_backhand.c:464: parse error before 'CRLF'
mod_backhand.c: In function 'backhand_redirection':
mod_backhand.c:612: parse error before 'CRLF'
mod_backhand.c::622: 'CRLF' undeclared (first use in this function)
mod_backhand.c:622: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
mod_backhand.c:622: for each function it appears in.)
make[4]: *** [mod_backhand.o] Error 1
make[3]: *** [all] Error 1
make[2]: *** [subdirs] Error 1
make[2] Leaving directory '/var/tmp/apache_1.3.6/src'
make[1] *** [build-std] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/var/tmp/apache_1.3.6'
make: *** [build] Error 2

Even with all those errors, maybe common (I am a windows user after
all so I'm used to it), I try to do the next line:

# make install

Less junk this time but I get the same errors:

mod_backhand.c: In function 'build_request_headers':
mod_backhand.c:464: parse error before 'CRLF'
mod_backhand.c: In function 'backhand_redirection':
mod_backhand.c:612: parse error before 'CRLF'
mod_backhand.c::622: 'CRLF' undeclared (first use in this function)
mod_backhand.c:622: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once

make[1] *** [build-std] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/var/tmp/apache_1.3.6'
make: *** [build] Error 2

So I try to find apache. I think it's located at /usr/local but its
not there. There used to be a /var/www directory when I did my last
install with the web server selected in tasksel, but thats not there.
So did the install mess up, if so why?
Or did it work ok but I have to configure apache more to work.

When i did install the webserver from tasksel last time I ftped my IIS
webserver data files into the www folder and everything worked
perfectly, I couldn't figure out how to get backhand to run so I
decided to do the clean vanilla install and install apache like listed
in the document: Help: compiling mod_backhand.
But then I get this so...what'd I do?

Please no big linux words, I am a newb. If you want me to do something
tell me where to do it and with what commands please.

Re: Errors on mod_backhand install process [In reply to]

Apache 1.3.6? That predates even the earliest version of mod_backhand.
Please try again with a modern (and safe) version of Apache 1.3.31 or
higher. If you still have problems, post again... Good job on the bug
report, it is very clear and complete.

Errors on mod_backhand install process [In reply to]

In the Help: compiling mod_backhand document they reference
apache_1.3.6.tar.gz as the file used. So if they used it there I
assume it would have worked.
And are you saying that 1.3.31 is newer than 1.3.6? Doesn't it usually
go up? I know 2.0 is new and mod_backhand doesn't work with it,
atleast it didn't when I was reading.

What version of apache would you suggest? And how can I undo what I
already have done? just do it over the top again, or do I delete
something or run a command? If not I'd just reinstall debian (that's
how newby I am).

Thank you for the help

Oops.. I'll take a look at that. You can compile mod_backhand as a
shared object and it tends to be less hassle.

Yes. 31 > 6. and yes 2.0.x is the newest, but mod_backhand has not been
ported to the 2.0 architecture.

1.3.31 or whatever is latest (1.3.32?, not sure if that is out yet).

If you configure apache for a default install including
--enable-module=so, then you will get an Apache installation that is
capable of loading modules after installation.

The in the mod_backhand directory, just

./configure --with-apxs=/path/to/apache/bin/apxs
make
cp mod_backhand.so /path/to/apache/libexec/mod_backhand.so

And add the necessary elements to your configuration file.

Errors on mod_backhand install process [In reply to]

Ok I installed it successfully using apache 1.3.31. I installed php
and mysql and everything else I need....now what? I looked though a
lot of documentation but didn't see what I needed. I know I need to
have mod_backhand on each server but does each server need to be the
exact same?
And I change my webpages daily so would I have to change them on both
servers at the same time? If so, what ways have you found to be the
best/fastest.
And if the servers need to be exact would ghost 4 unix be a good way
of making both servers the exact same.
As of right now I have mod_backhand working (I think) on 1 server. It
will be on 2 total servers whenever I figure out what I need to do.
I'll probably be editing all of the webpages on my windows xp machine.

Thank you for the help on the install

Nope, using the provided candidacy functions mod_backhand will select
the machine best capable of answering the request so no, the machines do
not need to match.

We use rsync at our company... have a look at that as it should meet
your needs.

That depends on what you want to use your clustered highly available web
server system for.

NFS mounts if you're Unix inclined, or you can share a directory on your
desktop XP machine and mount that on the front-end web servers. Both
schemes are very inefficient compared to having the files local on a disk
on the web server, but it's very convinient. Make sure the access is
read-only on either scheme to improve the efficiency.

Well, a stock install of your favoured Unix or Linux plus a copy of Apache
+ mod_backhand + whatever in /opt/ is how we favour it here. It's probably
no more hassle doing it that way than it would be ghosting the disks and
re-configuring the second machine with its settings.
