Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS-2590) Need help: (re-)build a module

Bjorn Townsend commented on AXIS-2590:

I suspect you're looking in the wrong place.  This is the bug-tracking database for the Apache
Axis web services software, not Apache httpd. It is also best to send email to the project
mailing list before opening a bug report. Consider sending your request for help to the Apache
users mailing list instead. Information on how to subscribe to the list can be found here:

> Hello,
> at first i have to say that my english isn't very well. But i hope you will understand
all i write.
> So now the Problem:
> I use the module "mod_vhost_alias" for a Freewebhosting-Project. The module works well,
but we need three changes and now i want to do them with some friends. But here is the Problem,
we don't know 'how'. At first we searched the API to understand the sourcecode, all ok...
> This are the changes we need:
> 1. checking, whether the virtual document root exists, because of the 404-Error (not
nice :) )
> 2. in the "Apache Environment Variables" is the DocumentRoot not changed to the virtual
document root. It's the one you wrote in the httpd.conf.
> 3. something like include command to include a file in that you can write user-specific
Apache and PHP Options; for example the php_value command, becuase each "virtual Host" can
have his own "configuartion".
> 1. We know how to check for a directory (i think they is an apache own function for this,
isn't it?), but we don't know where. We thought it could be in the function "vhost_alias_set".
> 2. We don't know, how we can set the document root out of the virtual path.
>     In the http_core.c file we found "conf->ap_document_root". But how can we change
this option out of a module function?
> 3. We know how to read a file, but how can we include the content of this file to the
> Why do we need this? It's easy to say:
> as I already said is it a freewebhosting-project and so we have a lot of vHosts. Actually
we write them all in the config. Nearly 2500 vHosts. So the Apache needs very long for startup.
To reduce this time, whe decied us for this module and for a perfect use for us, we want to
make these changes.
> Many questions, sorry, but this is our first programming action for Apache. but we hope,
you can help us to resolve this problems.

> PS: We know, that this is a non-technical contact address, but we don't find a other
one to that we can send this mail.
