SYNOPSIS

quickie

DESCRIPTION

The quickie program is used to serve wiki pages when invoked from a HTTP web server, such as Apache.

The quickie program does not accept any command line options, as these could be abused by web clients.

Web Server CW]cgi-bin Directory

It is necessary to copy the CW]quickie executable into your web server’s CW]cgi-bin directory. This isn’t done automagically by make install because it tends to move around a great deal from one web server to another.

You could also use a symbolic link, provided your web server is configured to allow symbolic links in the CW]cgi-bin directory (the is the Apache default).

Quickie CW]/var Directory

The wiki pages are stored in the $(prefix)/var/quickie directory, unless you overrode this by using the ./configure --localstatedir command line option.

This directory must be readable and writable by the UID Apache (or any other web server) runs as. For example, RedHat tends to use UID "CW]apache" and Debian tends to use UID "CW]www-data".

You need to change the file owner to match the web server. On RedHat the following command

chmod -R apache.apache ${prefix}/var/quickie
will perform this task. Make sure you set the UID, GID and directory name appropriate for your situation.

For the Apache web server, the User and Group directives in the apache.conf file are the ones to look for.

    Automated Post-Install

You can use the quickie_post_install(1) program to see if the above web server configuration data can be automatically determined; the information will be printed on the standard output.

If you are satisfied with the results (they are not always correct for every site) you can ask for them to be performed for you by using the quickie_post_install -auto command line option.

ACCESSING THE WIKI PAGES

Once the quickie(1) program has been installed into your web server’s CW]cgi-bin directory, you will be able to access through your web browser. The URL of the wiki pages will be
http://server.domain.name/cgi-bin/quickie
however you need to substitute the correct domain name (Internet name) for the web server. If the cgi-bin directory has an unusual name, you will have to take that into account as well.

It is common to make a link from your web site’s static pages into the Quickie wiki pages, to simplify access for your site’s visitors.

EXIT STATUS

The quickie command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The quickie command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.
