Make.conf is portage's and Funtoo's main configuration file. It contains many variables that define how a package will installed in a Funtoo system. You can customize portage internal variables, such as, portage tree location, sources tarball location, overlays, to name a few. You can customize hardware specs, such as TMPFS, disk limits, GCC compilation flags to achieve best performance, etc. A great deal of this customization is done through the make.conf file. This page will attempt to explain the uses of the make.conf file, different variables that can be added to it, and their uses.

Summary: The Apache Web Server


Apache

apache is a powerful web server. apache serves html/css/cgi/pl out of the box, and other languages/frameworks via extensions.

USE Flags

TODO

Install

# emerge apache

Configuration

System

Many packages have apache2 use flags, and require them to be supported by apache. Setting a system wide apache2 use flag is a good idea.

/etc/portage/make.conf: set system wide apache2 useflag
USE="apache2 ..........."

Package

Apache's configuration files are broken up and located in several spots.

  • /etc/conf.d/apache2
  • /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
  • /etc/apache2/modules.d/*
  • /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*

conf.d controls the init script, adding things to it such as -D SECURITY & -D PHP5 will enable web application fire-walling & the php scripting language.

httpd.conf controls how the server behaves, at the bottom of the file it has directives to include configuration files ending in .conf in /etc/apache2/modules.d & /etc/apache2/vhosts.d

Service

To start apache immediately:

# rc-service apache2 start

To start apache upon boot:

# rc-update add apache2

mod_rewrite

mod_rewrite has a reputation of being difficult to set up. mod_rewrite requires following symlinks & Order allow,deny (apache 2.2) or Require all granted (apache 2.4) is set. To test functionality of mod_rewrite we will need to make a few files.

Note

If you want to test this for web applications such as mediawiki adjust the path to /var/www/localhost/htdocs/mediawiki/.htaccess & so on

/var/www/localhost/htdocs/.htaccess: enable the rewrite engine
RewriteEngine on 
RewriteRule ^test.html$ rewrite.html
/var/www/localhost/htdocs/test.html: set system wide apache2 useflag
rewrite is not working
/var/www/localhost/htdocs/rewrite.html: set system wide apache2 useflag
rewrite is working

Then point your browser @ http://127.0.0.1/test.html the text from rewrite.html should be loaded.
