Tips for using Dulcinea site management tools to start and stop services.
Dulcinea is highly recommended to Quixote developers that are using one or more of Apache, Durus and SCGI.
By default Dulcinea's site management tools expect a path hierarchy that looks like this:
This can be changed - review the package docs: doc/site-management.txt
Assuming a development environment: Copy your machine's Apache httpd.conf to /www/conf/apache/apache-global.conf , being first sure to remove any virtualhost definitions for "sites" you expect Dulcinea tools to manage on your behalf.
- FreeBSD note on Apache -- FreeBSD by default configures Apache's PID file as "/var/run/httpd.pid"; Dulcinea expects "apache.pid". In your apache-global.conf, change this value to "/www/var/apache.pid", . Its probably a good idea to change your master httpd.conf as well, so that apachectl stop/start and Dulcinea's "site somesiteofmine start/stop" tools can live together.
