Add mod_fcgid to Uniform Server Zero

21 November 2013 - 09:50 PM

I request that mod_fcgid (Module Identifer: fcgid_module) is added to Uniform Server ZeroXI apache module.


Strangely, Uniform Server Zero XI includes proxy_fcgi_module modules/mod_proxy_fcgi.so

and I am a little confused as to why httpd.conf includes;

# FastCGI Module configuration
<IfModule fcgid_module>
Include conf/extra/httpd-fcgid.conf

# Proxy Html Module configuration
<IfModule proxy_html_module>
Include conf/extra/httpd-fcgid.conf

when there is no conf/extra/httpd-fcgid.conf file included in the Uniform Server ZeroXI apache module ZeroXI_apache_2_4_6_a.exe.

I am in the process of trying to add mod_fcgid to my Uniform Server ZeroXI by using the Windows binaries available from http://www.apachelounge.com/download/

Why is this important to me?

Because I use Uniform Server to create a development environment on my desktop Windows PC that is as close as possible to the configuration of my web hosting service, which in most cases is Bluehost, and which I nomally configure with FastCGI for PHP for the performance reasons stated.

Also note that mod_fcgid is recommended in the Joomla! v3.x installation hosting requirements.

Uniform Server Zero versus Uniform Server Series (Nano,Carbo, Orion, Coral, etc)

Problem: I am having difficultly finding Forum postings relevant to my problems and specific configuration of Uniform Server (currently Uniform Server Zero XI).

Solution?: May I suggest the Support -> Windows Forum is further sub-divided into Uniform Server Zero versus Uniform Server Series (Nano,Carbo, Orion, Coral, etc), and then further sub-divided into appropriate sub-forums; PHP, Apache, MySQL, etc.

OR some other division/sub-division that differentiates between Uniform Server Zero versus Uniform Server Series (Nano,Carbo, Orion, Coral, etc).

UniServer Zero Controller Menu > General > Mail Utility msmtp

21 September 2013 - 12:48 PM


Server OS: Windows XP SP3 (with latest updates as at 21-Sep-2013)

UniServer Zero Modules installed:

Zero_Controller_10_2_3.exe (with msmtp v1.4.31)









Problem Description:

In general, no significant problems - great product, thank you.


Except problems with Mail Utility msmtp when trying to run it from the controller application, Menu > General > Mail utility msmtp > Send Mail (button).

Problem is: No mail is sent, no C:\UniServerZ\core\msmtp\msmtp.log file is created.

(I had previously appropriately edited C:\UniServerZ\core\msmtp\msmtprc.ini using Menu > General > Mail utility msmtp > Edit configuration file and double checked that the edits had been saved, and stopped and restarted the controller)

Sending mail using C:\UniServerZ\core\msmtp\Send_test_email.bat works as expected (does not matter if Apache Server is running or not running)

Sending mail using a PHP script works as expected when Apache Server is running.



(1) Edited C:\UniServerZ\core\msmtp\Send_test_email.bat and changed the line,

msmtp --file=%cd%\msmtprc.ini user_name@target_email_address -t < %TEMP%\temp.mail

such that 'user_name@target_email_address' was a valid email address

(2) Ran the file Send_test_email.bat from the Windows command prompt

(3) Everything worked as expected, log file created (and contents shown in controller General > Mail utility msmtp > log file

(4) Tried again to Send Mail using the controller General > Mail utility msmtp > Send Mail, but nothing appears to happen

(5) From the controller Apache Utilities > Server Console



C:\UniServerZ>msmtp.exe -P
ignoring system configuration file C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\msmtprc.txt: No such file or directory
ignoring user configuration file C:\UniServerZ\msmtprc.txt: No such file or directory
falling back to default account
msmtp.exe: account default not found: no configuration file available

C:\UniServerZ>msmtp.exe -S
msmtp.exe: account default not found: no configuration file available


Thank you.
