Feedback on RedirectBySubdomainAddOn

Apache httpd

Here's what I did to get it working with Apache httpd:

  • change $ENV('SERVER_NAME') to $ENV('HTTP_HOST') on line 7
  • change "HTTP 1.1 302 Object Moved" to "Status: 302 Object Moved" on line 49
  • mkdir /path/to/twiki/pub/redirect/
  • move redirect.pl to /path/to/twiki/pub/redirect/index.cgi
  • add something like this to httpd.conf:
<VirtualHost fooserver>
        DocumentRoot /path/to/twiki/pub/redirect/
        ServerName redir.twiki.foo.com
        ServerAlias *.twiki.foo.com

Thanks, Martin, this is helpful.

Thanks for your update Steve. I might install it again myself now!

As for specifying topic, yes I agree, do feel free to have a go.

I first started to write this reply thinking you had written:

To solve this problem would be neat as well. It would be best implemented by ShorterURLs and a variant of FindElsewherePlugin.

It would need to work with the existing http://twiki.foo.com/bin/view/ garbage, but given a missing web (which would look like a web with no topic but, on examination, the web would be found to not exist), it find the web with that topic and redirect to it.

That will be useful because you could then say:

and have it resolve to:

Did you think that it would be nice to not have to redirect? I did. I thought that http://codev.twiki.org/CoreTeam looks a lot less messy than http://twiki.org/bin/view/Codev/CoreTeam

But this is a ShorterURLs issue.

I added a SHORTDESCRIPTION to the "Add-On Info" section so that this add-on is represented properly in the AddOnPackage topic and query topics. Please feel free to take this into the next release.
