Rapache returns ?

Rapache returns ?

Not without a certain pleasure I announce that I got Rapache fixed and working again.

Rapache is a graphical user tool to help you configure Apache2. It allows easy creation of virtual name hosts and modules activation without prior knowledge of configuration files.

I still have to mess with the packaging thing, and there are certain trade-offs, but anybody interested can finally download a working version.

To install it run the following commands

sudo apt-get install python-crypto python-openssl python-lxml
sudo apt-get install python-glade2 python-gnome2-extras python-gksu2
sudo apt-get install python-gtk2 python-gtksourceview2 gksu bzr
bzr branch lp:rapache

Once you’re done, you can run it with the following commands:

cd rapache
sudo ./rapache

Note that Rapache now requires sudo, but it will nevertheless ask for your password the first time you try to do anything. It’s glitchy and patchy but at least it works.

Also there is no more tray icon (not a problem for Unity users I guess) and the status bar displays an ‘apache not reacheable’ message unregarding the real apache status.

Still you get the same easy virtualhost creation, syntax highlighted source editor, module activation/removal we all used to love.

A word of warning, as my computer is still running Ubuntu 10.10 Rapache is untested on 11.04 and 11.10. But it’s worth a try. Let me know how it runs :)

You can find more about Rapache in my previous posts.

    dopo che ho scritto:
    sudo apt-get install python-crypto python-openssl python-lxml
    sudo apt-get install python-glade2 python-gnome2-extras
    sudo apt-get install python-gtk2 python-gtksourceview2 gksu bzr
    bzr branch lp:rapache
    sudo ./rapache
    …………………………………..
    ottengo il seguente messaggio:

    Traceback (most recent call last):

    lanciando ill secondo comando :
    sudo apt-get install python-glade2 python-gnome2-extras

    ottengo il seguente messaggio:
    Lettura elenco dei pacchetti… Fatto
    Generazione albero delle dipendenze
    Lettura informazioni sullo stato… Fatto
    python-glade2 è già alla versione più recente.
    Il pacchetto python-gnome2-extras non ha versioni disponibili, ma è nominato da un altro
    pacchetto. Questo può significare che il pacchetto è mancante, è obsoleto
    oppure è disponibile solo all’interno di un’altra sorgente
    Tuttavia questi pacchetti lo sostituiscono:
    python-gtkhtml2 python-gtkspell python-gtkmozembed python-gksu2 python-gdl
    python-gda python-eggtrayicon
    E: Il pacchetto python-gnome2-extras non ha candidati da installare

    puo essere questa la causa che rapache non funziona?????

    Hi, great tool, thanks for making it work.

    I’m running it on Ubuntu 11.04 Natty and it’s wonderful. I reported a but on launchpad causing a crash while selecting virtualhost folder. More details after the jump:
