The Web server can be used on VMS V6.n and 7.n (has even been
known to compile and run under v5.5-2 - though not officially supported), Alpha
and VAX, using any TCP/IP environment supporting the BG: driver. This
includes UCX (3/4.n), Digital TCP/IP Services (v5.n), MultiNet,
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is available
from the WASD download site.
A comprehensive scripting environment is provided; CGI, ISAPI, OSU-compatible
(DECnet), Java, Perl, with persistant scripting supported (including a Perl
engine). The Scripting Overview
describes these. A significant number of VMS-specific scripts are also
provided, including HELP, Bookreader, system performance, and many more example
and useful scripts. Other scripts provided as separate packages are
available direct from this CD or via the
The Technical Overview contains detailed
information on server installation and setup (remember that if accessing the
documentation via file:// or the CD contents are being provided by
another Web server some links will not be valid and on-line demonstrations will
not necessarily work!)
PostScript versions of these documents are available for viewing with VMS CDA
Viewer or GhostScript (if installed on your system), or for printing.
Make sure the freeware CD is mounted /SYSTEM then
$ PRINT /QUEUE=postscript-queue cd:[HTTPD_WASD.DOC.HTD]HTD.PS
$ PRINT /QUEUE=postscript-queue cd:[HTTPD_WASD.DOC.SCRIPTING]SCRIPTING.PS
These are large documents, so if you have a printer providing two pages per
sheet and/or double-sided it is recommended to submit the job with the
The Technical Overview includes detail at various levels on
how to install the package. It can
either be compiled with DECC 5/6.n, or using the supplied AXP (Alpha)
or VAX specific object module archives (built against a base of VMS V6.0, and
so should work for VMS V6.n, V7.n and even V5.5-2), perform a
link-only build. Installation is basically a three-step process.
- Restore the archive.
$ SET DEFAULT device:
$ UNZIP "-V" cd:[HTTPD_WASD]HTROOT711.ZIP
(then optionally, architecture-specific object modules)
$ UNZIP "-V" cd:[HTTPD_WASD]HTROOT711-axp|vax.ZIP
- Install the package.
$ SET DEFAULT device:[HT_ROOT]
- Customize the package to suit the site's exact requirements.
