  • 1.3.27 has a major exploitable security flaw.

    • Security issues aren't a concern for me; the site will never be live on the net, and only four people will have access to the site, myself included. It's more a pet project, if you will. I'm just looking for a definite answer on whether or not I can run slash and livejournal simultaneously on the same instance of Apache, and if not, what sort of kludges or fancy tricks I have to perform to make it work.

      Also I'm interested in knowing if it's absolutely nevessary to run MySQL and Apache in GMT since it's a

      • Well, I have yet to install LiveJournal, but it can't be too hard. I've seen Slash and Scoop run on the same box, and I have mod_php on all of my servers to do other things (like phpMyAdmin, our hosting business home page, etc) so I can't imagine that it cannot be done.

        If you don't care that the times will look wierd, just set them the same and forget about it - just don't make them different...

        • LiveJounal is actually pretty easy to install. The only catch with LJ is that only one instance of LJ can run per instance of Apache (i.e. you need a separate apache installation listening on another port to have multiple LJ installs on the same server). You just use two httpd.conf directives and the rest of the configuration is done by changing specified values in a perl script (farily well-documented between the script itself and the instructions available on livejournal.com). I think I'll try setting

          • Well, that's fairly generic, but I can't see anything there that says "Slash can't be made to work with this."

            Let us know. Should be interesting to try and make it work.

            • I got it working. I was going nuts until I realized I needed to use "slash.$DOMAINNAME" instead of just "slash" (I kept getting the index page from the first virtualhost in httpd.conf). Overall there weren't many problems with the install (besides having to force the Apache::Cookie module to install).

              There was one minor issue. When I did make install for slash, I gave INIT=/etc/rc.d, which is correct. The slash script wasn't installed. I had to create /etc/init.d and rerun make install so that the scri

              • Bad juju.

                I keep all LOCALLY generated init scritps in /usr/local/etc/rc.d

                I'm using FreeBSD, YMMV.

                • Matter of personal preference, I suppose. I usually keep all mine in /etc/rc.d/local and keep all daemons in /daemons. Unusual, I know, but it helps me with organization and backups.

            • I did discover a problem this morning, a potentially crippling one. I can't create a new user or even log in. Every time I try, apache returns a 500 Internal Server Error. Somehow the login request for my first author account (slash) must have worked, though, because I'm getting the "This page was generated by ... for slash (2)" header above the two default stories, even though when I click on slash, to go to his user info page, I get another 500 Internal Server error. Further invesitgation shows the pr

                • Yeah, I noticed. I had checked the logs and didn't see anything because my log rotate script had rotated the logs. When I realized that, I looked at the old log and discovered the problem. I didn't install Bundle::Slash through CPAN, I used the tarball from the Sourceforge project site and therefore didn't install all the required modules. Fired up CPAN and installed the modules that were being complained about and everything works now.
