First Release (v0.0) available.
updated 23.05.2002 19:23:55
I have put together a tar-ball with the source-code of Weird Web.
This release must be considered very alpha!!
You may download it in our Download-Section at your own risk. But be warned - it probably will not work as you expect.
I didn't have the time to write some documentation, yet. Therefor it will be very difficult to install an setup Weird Web v0.0.
It also needs a big big code-clean-up. There is still a lot of experimental code included. And the code is not documented very well.
Very short install instructions.
If you still want to give it a try. Please read the short infos about Requirements first.
And here is what you will get. The tar-ball includes nearly all the files (images are not included) used at this site. You will find the following structure.
There is a create.sql in the WW/doc directory. Create a new MySQL database and use this definitions to create all the needed tables.
In this configuration you will need a virtual server for Weird Web, because a lot of links are not dynamically set. Configure your server with DocumentRoot <yourpath>/WW/htdocs and ScriptAlias <yourpath>/WW/cgi-bin and enable 'Server Side Includes'
Then open WW/cgi-bin/lib/WW/Config.pm and set all necessary variables (e.g. database user and passwd, paths, ...)
Open a terminal and follow the errorlog (eg. tail -f /var/log/http/error.log).
Now open http://your.server.com/admin and you should see a login screen. Try to log in with username 'admin' and password 'admin'
If you have troubles you may drop me (firstname.lastname@example.org) a note, and i will try to help you.
There is of course no warranty at all!!
