Webstar Dead? Apache 2 safe?

Marc Pinnell-3
With the possible demise of Webstar (at least future development and  
support), I have begun looking for alternatives. I checking out  
iTools interfaces, I noticed that they install Apache 2. Is Apache 2  
safe and compatible with Lasso 8 on OSX? I checked Omnipilot's  
website and they don't list Apache 2 for Mac OSX as a viable server  
(only on Linux).

Thanx
Marc

Apache 2 is fully supported on Mac OS X.  There are several "Custom Install" options in the installer including for the version that comes with Mac OS X Server, the Complete Apache 2 installation, and the iAssist Apache 2 installation.

If iTools has an eval option I'd suggest you use that to make sure that you can get Lasso running with their version of Apache 2 before you buy it.

Marc - going through the same exercise here....

I've been using Apache 2 for some dev and testing with Lasso 8 (and 7 before
that).  Works fine.  Great installer of it at www.serverlogistics.com

I played briefly with iTools but have settled on OS X server for my post
WebSTAR world.  We'll see......

I love Apache2 it seems faster than apache 1.3 and getting  
compression on by default is easier with mod_deflate in apache2 than  
mod_gzip in apache 1.3  The only downside really is needing something  
like Tennon iTools or if you're an advanced user you can work with  
webmin which is free.

I've been running apache 2.0.5x on Mac OS X 10.4.x for several months  
now without issue.

Hi All,

Well, my guess is WebStar is "dead in the water" and honestly we have been
running Apache and now Apache 2 for at least two years. WebStar got "quirky"
running on the the server, and then the pricing with email and so forth just
got to the point "WebStar unlimited $1,500.00" versus "Apache free". It
appeared to be a mute point and we actually still have a full-license of
Web-Star collecting dust, the version with the unlimited accounts that I
tried to sell well over a year ago on the 4-D list to no avail.
Running Apache and Apache2 on MacOSX has ran smoothly for us with no
problems, and honestly we never have missed the "quirks" of WebStar, and
never looked back. We did try I-Tools. It does work and I believe some of
the little things that it lacked, and you still had to go into the httpd
files to add maybe fixed by now. We have also used Server Admin, which
worked like a charm in the beginning for setting up new sites, but found it
also can be a little "buggy", so alas we go through terminal and set up new
sites in the comp file there. It is quicker, less irritating and after you
learn to use it, you have no problem quickly setting up  the httpd file for
a new client. We still use Server Admin to set up DNS, but you have to watch
it closely just in case it decides to "bug out" again, and mess up your
setting for a new client in DNS.
