NAME

Catalyst::Manual::DevelopmentServer - Development server deployment

The development server is a mini web server written in Perl. However, if you supply the "-f" option to the development server, it will load the higher performance Starman server, which can be used as an application server with a lightweight proxy web server at the front.

CONTENTS

Setup

    Start up the development server



   script/myapp_server.pl -p 8080 -k -f --pidfile=/tmp/myapp.pid



You will probably want to write an init script to handle stop/starting the app using the pid file.

    Configuring Apache

Make sure mod_proxy is enabled and add:



    # Serve static content directly
    DocumentRoot /var/www/MyApp/root
    Alias /static /var/www/MyApp/root/static

    ProxyRequests Off
    <Proxy *>
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all
    </Proxy>

    # Need to specifically stop these paths from being passed to proxy
    ProxyPass /static !
    ProxyPass /favicon.ico !

    ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/
    ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/

    # This is optional if youd like to show a custom error page
    # if the proxy is not available
    ErrorDocument 502 /static/error_pages/http502.html



You can wrap the above within a VirtualHost container if you want different apps served on the same host.

    Other web servers

The proxy configuration above can also be replicated with a different frontend server or proxy, such as varnish, nginx, or lighttpd.
