[ic] FW: Site configuration
Tue, 10 Oct 2000 20:15:44 -0700
I am trying to fully understand the 'catalog' configuration in the
minivend.cfg file. The example given is :
Catalog simple /home/minivend/simple /cgi-bin/simple /simple
The FIRST parameter (/home/minivend/simple) is the pathway to the catalog
directory? The documentation says it is just a name. Does this line play a
significant role in software execution or not?
The SECOND is the path to what ? ? ? The location of the script is what
it looks like, not just a base directory of the catalog, which is stored
away from the cgi-bin space.
The final 'alias' is the name of the vlink program. Fine. Why does the
example in the minivend.cfg file contain the following:
#Catalog simple /home/mike/catalogs/simple /cgi-bin/simple
This makes it look like the /secure-bin/simple 'alias' should be just for
Could someone offer me a clear explanation of how to use these and set them
up right? Where can I find the info if it already exists.
