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
