Setting up ethercalc (II)

following previous post.

Server environment and configuration

  • Debian Wheezy amd64
  • Using official repository as much as possible
    • redis-server 2:2.4.14-1
  • Run behind apache reverse proxy, using “/ethercalc/” as its path from browser

node.js

cd /usr/local/src
wget http://nodejs.org/dist/v0.10.10/node-v0.10.10.tar.gz
tar -zxvf node-v0.10.10.tar.gz
cd node-v0.10.10
./configure
make
make install DESTDIR=/usr/local/node.js
dpkg -i node_0.10.10-1_amd64.deb

Note, package name ‘node’ exists already in Debian official package..

ethercalc

cd /server
npm i ethercalc

Use rc script for starting ethercalc.
Also use --basepath option to run ethercalc at ‘/ethercalc/’ path as /server/node_modules/ethercalc/app.js --basepath /ethercalc/.

update-rc.d defaults ethercalc
invoke-rc.d ethercalc start

Apache configuration

Added reverse proxy.

    ProxyVia On
    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPass /ethercalc/ http://XXX:8000/
    ProxyPassReverse /ethercalc/ http://XXX:8000/
    ProxyPreserveHost on

    Hello,
    Can you modify the script to output the log to a file. With the above rc script, there’s no log file.
    Thanks!
