WASP x64 ( Windows x64 , Apache 2.4 x64 , SVN, PHP )

To make things easy WASP will now go out in the wild.

Ever wanted a 64 bit distribution of apache 2.4, svn and php but putting all the parts together caused butt pain?
Well here you go.

How stable is it?
It hasn't crashed in production. YET.

How is it configured?
httpd.conf. It uses lots of memory! It eats 2.3 GB of RAM, and then holds steady due to a 2GB svn cache. If you have a small repo and more RAM? MAKE the cache BIGGER!

In production it currently serves a 1.6TB svn repo with 465k revisions that is growing, and acts as a proxy for multiple internal web servers. It also runs PHP so you can use it to do other useful things. Uses rotatelogs to make daily rotating logs, cause usually no one sets this up either!

Why did I put it together?
Because nothing out there fit my needs.

Why did I put this here?
Because hopefully it'll benefit someone else that also wants to roll their own and not use collabnet/wandisco/visualsvn. They are all great products, but not quite what I'm looking for.

How do I install it?
Extract to C:\WASP. Run httpd.exe

Note to self : 0x000001d error

Usually means some /arch: for code generation that is not supported, like SSE2 / AVX

Beware the Windows Scheduled Tasks!

I've had a TeamCity server run much much slower than it's other counterparts.

I finally narrowed it down to Scheduled Tasks. The agent was started at logon by Scheduled Tasks.

It looks like Scheduled Tasks will start in under below normal priority and while this wasn't a problem for many of our build tools, TortoiseSVN however performs very very poorly in below normal priority.

Simple Hall and Teamcity Integration

You will have to set up these 2 parameters as environment variables to be passed in your TeamCity project parameters configuration.

env.BuildID = %teamcity.build.id%
env.BuildTypeID = %system.teamcity.buildType.id%

Checks to see if it's running under TeamCity and then sends the INFO

if not "%TEAMCITY_PROJECT_NAME%" == "" curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d "{\"title\":\"TeamCity\",\"message\":\"Failed - %TEAMCITY_PROJECT_NAME% - %TEAMCITY_BUILDCONF_NAME% - %BUILD_NUMBER% ^<a href="http://TEAMCITYURL/viewLog.html?buildId=%BuildID%&buildTypeId=%BuildTypeID%&tab=buildResultsDiv"^>View Build^</a^>\",\"picture\":\"http:/TEAMCITYURL/img/icons/TeamCity32.png\"}" https://hall.com/api/1/services/generic/HALLID

Visual Studio Property files and line endings

If you like to lay out multi line preprocessor definition in macros in .props files.


Something like that. Certain plugins like the clang plugin will cause all sorts of interesting errors because it'll pass the command line to the compiler with the CRLF.

Change line endings to Old Mac format CR only.

VS will allow you to edit and it will respect the line endings and wont convert it, and it seems to pass through to the compiler just fine.

Integrating windows hosted SVN with hall, logs and diffs provided with WEBSVN
