View Full Version : Apache and WINUAE

I'm interesting to put up a www-server with WINUAE. Is it possible to run Apache www-server with WINUAE using bsdsocket emulation? :-o

I can't really see the advantage of running Apache in WinUAE, except for maybe security (perhaps). It should work, though.

I'm using A1200 and running Apache there. I have plenty of cgi-scripts written an AREXX and that's the reason I need an Amiga(emulator) to execute them. Everything is running fine so far. Now I'm little worried if my A1200 blows up. So I want to build up an emergency system. I'm running WINUAE on my PC so I thought maybe it is bossible...
I have tried it and Apache starts ok in WINUAE but it doesn't reply if I try to connect. I think I must do something in windows site? But what? :-?

I think I've seen this talked about before, from what I remember I don't think it's possible with the current version of WinUAE due to the way TCP/IP is implemented... the Amiga doesn't get it's own IP, and Windows has no idea what incoming ports should be forwarded to the WinUAE TCP/IP stack. The way WinUAE works right now, there's no way to forward anything incoming to WinUAE's stack.
Maybe this has changed, but I don't remember ever seeing it mentioned in the changelogs.
On another note, has anyone tried Amiga Apache on Amithlon yet? That would be a nifty little server :)

I think that it is no problem of the bsdsocket-emulation, it is a
problem of how to make the needed settings to the TCP/IP stack.
e.g. you need a group "www" and a user "www" attached to this group.
This should be done in the system-settings. Also you must have a http

Thanks for answers!
It seems that my intention is not bossible yet. Still I'm waiting and hoping that somebody discovers maybe some backdoor to fire up Apache with WinUAE. ;-)

Yes, I have tried Apache with Amithlon. Because Miami works normally with Amithlon, Apache works normally too. I have tested this on Amithlon owned by my friend. So I don't have my own Amithlon to set up a server. :-(
