hellahella on Apache 2Other · Software · Websites
I have been using hellahella using paster serve and I must say the performance was terrible. I don’t think that it is mean’t to be run for any length of time which is at odds with hellahella, the web interface to hellanzb, which is.
I have documented before that I am using hellanzb to manage my nzb files, and hellahella makes it even easier and with integration with http://www.newzbin.com it is even better (how about one click downloads, unrar, par, and ready to view – yes I have it!)
So I wanted to run hellahella using Apache2 on my Debian box. Luckly just as I wanted to do this a new FAQ was put up on the Pylons web site on how to achieve this using mod_python (which I also wanted to use). Pylons is a web framework for python and it seems quite good too and I got alot of help from the very helpful pylons-discuss group on groups.google.com.
So I setup Apache2 or rather Debian did using apt-get, and I got a fairly normal install. If you haven’t used version2 of apache before the configuration has changed somewhat and all the config files are now split. At the same time I also installed mod_python using apt-get and as this is rather well documented I am not going to write it down here. Now all we need do is follow the first part of the instructions on the Pylons site:
- Install hellahella (I assume you are running hellanzb already otherwise go and download and install it) and make sure it works with paster serve hella.ini
- Make sure mod_python is installed and enabled.
- Save the http://projects.amor.org/misc/svn/modpython_gateway.py script as wsgi.py in your mod_python python directory which is /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/mod_python/ on my system.
- Create a project directory. I used /www/hellahella
Create startup.py file in this directory with the following information:from paste.deploy import loadapp
app = loadapp(“config:/www/hellahella/hella.ini”)
Create a link to your hella.ini file: ln -s /etc/hella.ini hella.ini
Go into your apache2 sites directory: cd /etc/apache2/sites-available/
Create a new site: vi hellahellaSite
And input the following information:
Remember to change the ipaddress 127.0.0.1 to whatever ipaddress or domain name you need.
The to a level above your doc root: cd /www
Then create a link from the public media files for hellahella to a directory here: ln -s /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/hellahella-0.1dev_r782-py2.3.egg/hellahella/public
Rename public: mv public hellahellaMedia
You might need to chgrp and chown the files under this directory.
Then enable this site: a2ensite hellahellaSite
Restart apache2: /etc/init.d/apache2 stop; /etc/init.d/apache2 start
And it should work aslong as hellanzb.py is running and hellahella is setup correctly.
And I must say it is looking good!comments powered by Disqus
