Description Leo Vandewoestijne 2019-01-08 03:09:31 UTC
I've spent almost five days compiling over and over again, and this is the best I could come up with.
It does what it should in the host environtment, but it fails in poudriere.
Further many options have no effect yet.
For example trying to link the systems OpenSSL has no effect; it still installs an embedded version (making maintainance more timeconsuming).
Also ./configure --help tells that php7 is used by default; in reality it installs php5 which is since 1/1 EoL / unmaintained.
However, openlitespeed looks like a great product, with much potential.

AFAIK the attached shar file is not good enough yet, I guess I miss a dependency, or some flags.
I will continue to improve it to a satisfieng level.

Looks like the shar is 1.4 MB, while the limit is 1 MB
Comment 2 Leo Vandewoestijne 2019-01-08 03:23:07 UTC
The shar can be found at https://dns.company/downloads/openlitespeed/lsws.shar.txt

I have the port working now, but I wish to upload the shar, to have it committed.
Could the upload limit here be increased from 1 to 2 MB?
(the pkg-plist is having MANY lines).

Leo, the max-upload can not be expanded. Put the shar file somewhere, I'll have
a look at it.

any news about this port?
Comment 7 Leo Vandewoestijne 2019-05-06 13:38:43 UTC
The port was working, but (less essential) parts were not.
It wasn't easy to solve that quick, and I didn't spend much time on it anymore.

My main interrest was QUIC support - which was only available for the enterprise edition, but the free edition was told to have impressibe benchmarks to.

After my posts, this response appeared:

I think altogether maybe it's time to try to finish this port, yes.
