View Full Version : Slimserver as an apache module ?

Has anyone thought about porting / retrofitting slimserver as an apache module ?

If this is possible, maybe I can convince my hosting provider to install this .so into their apache servers and then, I can stream music directly from my hosting account (which has ample of disk space)....

Thx much.

Boy, I'd sure like to see SlimServer as an (L)AMP application - Apache, MySQL and PHP based. I think the skinning could be infinitely more flexible, the web server would be much faster, and the database more robust and scalable. You'd also increase the potential developer base many times over vs. using Perl.

Of course, where this all breaks down is that SlimServer then becomes infinitely more complex for end users to install and for Slim Devices to support. Oh well.

have a look at http://www.jinzora.org/
and search the 3rd party plugins forum for Jinzora.

I couldn't get it to work but i know nothing about Apache and PHP

Well, jinzora has similiar concept.
However, their client is still PC-based.
What is needed is make the Slim client be
able to talk to the jinzora server.

Or it might be easier to port slimserver
to PHP. Most hosting providers offer
mysql and php these days.

I can't imagine trying to do that port.

It would be a lot less work to find a hosting service
that supports Perl. Most (many?) do for cgi.

Even if you did the port, you'd have to do it constantly
as the SlimServer evolves. It is actively developed.

Yeah, I agree that porting to php
is not good if the community still actively
developing the slimserver in perl.

But, IMHO, php is probably faster and requires
less resources than perl... but that's another
discussion...

oh well...

A ground-up rewrite in PHP would probably be a great way to make sure that no new features are added to the SB2 for the next year or so. :-) As for php being faster and less resource hungr, that is another discussion. However, I don't see why it would be the case!
