schtonk 0.03 - 0.04 differences
base-url for schtonk has changed from /cgi-bin/schtonk/ to just
plain /schtonk/ because apache wanted to keep /cgi-bin/ to its
own configuration .. urls look tidier now but this is a bit
incompatibility-kind-of-issue related to previous versions.
character used to mark links has been changed from odd arrow
to more friendly "angle quotation marks" that are found in more
old database password schemantics still apply but if there is
a database/user/password combination in environment variables,
it is used ; this change is to support dbconfig_common that
now configures your database if you install from debian package.
* build process
go ahead, type "make deb" and you'll get a debian package.
it might be good idea to replace the signing-key id from Makefile
with an id for which you actually have a signing key.
on the other hand, "make install" now installs in very odd
place, most likely resulting in non-functional install if you
don't copy things to place by hand.
is now not up-to-date because of first item listed in this file.
unchanged ; but if. if you install debian package then it requires
you to have mysql-server in the same box. if you disagree, grab
the tar.gz and change dependencies in control-file and rebuild.
it also states dependency to apache2 so if you run any other
httpd you may want to change that. it tries to configure apache2
by giving a conf file snippet to it so there is kind of new
dependency ; if apache2 is missing it should still install but
you need to configure that another httpd of yours by hand.
it turns out that default mysql-5 install in debian has blank
database admin password ; as installation from debian package
ask for database admin password and you have not changed that
yourself, a blank must be entered. it works but is odd.
