Hiawatha 8.7 deb package download

Wed Jan 23, 2013 9:48 pm

To save some people a bit of time I thought I'd make available a compiled RPi/armhf deb package for hiawatha 8.7. It should help with installs of RPi webservers without the need to install compilation packages etc

Download the deb from http://www.osburn-garrote.com/hiawatha_8.7_armhf.deb
MD5: db03598e836473af10e7d3c508e71fe2 (also at http://www.osburn-garrote.com/hiawatha_8.7_armhf.hash)

The tutorial below should now work (modified copy of http://www.hiawatha-webserver.org/forum/topic/1214).

Untested but I hope it helps.



Howto: Hiawatha on Raspberry Pi by Heiko
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
wget http://www.hiawatha-webserver.org/files ... 8.7.tar.gz
tar -xzvf hiawatha-8.7.tar.gz
cd hiawatha-8.7
wget http://www.osburn-garrote.com/hiawatha_8.7_armhf.deb
dpkg -i hiawatha_8.7_armhf.deb

hiawatha -k

The result should be:
Using /usr/local/etc/hiawatha
Reading hiawatha.conf
Readinf mimetype.conf
Configuration OK.

service hiawatha status

The result should be:
Hiawatha is runnung

Have fun with a great Webserver on Raspberry Pi

Uncomment in /etc/hiawatha/hiawatha.conf the line:

Change / uncomment in /etc/hiawatha/hiawatha.conf the lines:

Extension = php, php5
SessionTimeout = 30

Uncomment: VirtualHost { ... }
Change / correct: Hostname, Websiteroot ... etc.

To be clear, the deb is tested and working. It's using it with the tutorial that's untested. Thanks.
