Re: [Catacomb] Apache directive feature request: non-default DBMS portnumber


Thanks for this patch. Could you make a patch using 'diff -u'?
We are discussing to move our CVS depository. After moving we can add new committers.

Let me know if you would rather I commit myself.  I do not think that I have
access to CVS yet.


Need to add field twice:

add new field to dav_repos_dir_conf and dav_repos_server_conf:

diff -w ./dav_repos.h ../../amorrow/catacomb-0.9.0_orig/dav_repos.h

    int db_port;
    int db_port;

diff -w ./dbms.c ../../amorrow/catacomb-0.9.0_orig/dbms.c

int dbms_opendb(dav_repos_db * d)
       int status;

   status = dbms_create(&(d->db), d->db_id, d->db_pass, d->db_name,
 d->db_host, d->db_port);

/* Why did orig always return 0 ? */
   return status;

diff -w ./mod_dav_repos.c ../../amorrow/catacomb-0.9.0_orig/mod_dav_repos.c

(add this anywhere..., around line 150)

static const char *dav_repos_db_port_cmd(cmd_parms * cmd, void *config,
      const char *arg1)
    dav_repos_server_conf *conf =
/* AWM: Should we flag syntax errors in number? */
    conf->db_port = atoi(arg1);
    return NULL;

static const command_rec dav_repos_cmds[] = {
    AP_INIT_TAKE1("DavDBMSPort", dav_repos_db_port_cmd, NULL, RSRC_CONF,
    "specify the MYSQL_DB_PORT for a directory or location"),

Thanks for your suggestion and it makes a lot of sense.
As soon as we move to the new svn repository, we will try to add the
DavDBMSPort directive. Meanwhile, your patch would be welcome, if you want
to make one.

Subject: [Catacomb] Apache directive feature request: non-default DBMS

Catacomb should have an Apache directive for specifying a non-default DBMS
port number.

The need for this feature is obvious. Of course, some DBMS client API's
offer other kinds of parameters. Even MySQL also has unixsocket and
clientflag in its client API (this is already TODO'ed in dbms_mysql.c) but
port is a very common parameter among DBMS client API's.

For database access to MySQL, Catacomb currently has



So, as a suggested name, adding a directive with a name like


which would specify a port number would fulfill this requirement.

The shortcut currently taken in the code is to pass a value of zero to get
the default port:

dbms.c : dbms_opendb() :
status = dbms_create(&(d->db), d->db_id, d->db_pass, d->db_name,
d->db_host, 0);

With that and the example of the existing directives, its obvious how
to implement the rest of this new directive.
