cgi-fcgi. Apache with mod_fastcgi version 2.2.12 or newer is recommended.
If you are running Linux, you can install the RPM packages. Install the mod_fastcgi package after the Apache packages. If you already have Apache installed, you must uninstall it first.
If you are installing HTMLgen by hand, you should apply the patch for Python 2.1 and HTML 4.01 support.
Verify that Python and HTMLgen are correctly installed by running:
python2 -c "import HTMLgen"
rpm -vhi webkom-0.22-1.noarch.rpm --prefix=/usr/local
After the installation, your web server must be configured for
WebKOM. If you are using Apache, you can do this by running
apache-setup.py. Read doc/README for more information
about manual configuration.
