How do I configure Swiki headless?Question: Is there a possibility to configure the swiki on a Server without a X-Environment ? I solved this by configuring the Image on a computer with X and copied it to the server without X. But isn't this a little bit stupid ? Swiki doesn't need X at all and could be configured through textfiles where Port and other items are set.
Answer: Yes, you can actually give Squeak a file with Smalltalk code in it as an argument and do the configuring/startup in there. An example bash-script to start Squeak headless with any image in the same directory and then running the code in the file "proxy.st" upon startup.
#!/bin/bash ./squeak -headless .image proxy.st
Don't forget to "chmod +x" this script so you can run it. The exact contents of the script for configuring Swiki I don't have handy. Mail me att firstname.lastname@example.org and I can dig it up for you.
Answer: I solved the problem. Run the Swiki with:
# squeak -headless squeak.image config.stThe Configuration File config.st looks something like this:
ComSwikiLauncher allInstances do: [ :instance | instance port: 8000. instance isOn ifTrue: [ instance stopServer ]. instance startServer. ].!Regards
