Description

       "Apache2::ServerRec" provides the Perl API for Apache server_rec object.

       "Apache2::ServerUtil" provides an extra functionality.

API

       "Apache2::ServerRec" provides the following functions and/or methods:

   "error_fname"
       Get/set the "ErrorLog" file value (e.g. logs/error_log)

         $error_fname      = $s->error_fname();
         $prev_error_fname = $s->error_fname($new_error_fname);

       obj: $s ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       opt arg1: $new_error_fname ( string )
           If passed, sets the new value for "ErrorLog"

           Note the limited functionality under threaded MPMs.

       ret: $error_fname ( string )
           Returns the "ErrorLog" value setting.

           If $new_error_fname is passed returns the setting before the change.

       since: 2.0.00

   "is_virtual"
       Test whether $s is a virtual host object

         $is_virtual = $s->is_virtual();

       obj: $s ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       ret: $is_virtual ( boolean )
           Returns the is_virtual setting.

           If $new_is_virtual is passed, returns the setting before the change.

       since: 2.0.00

       Example:

         print "This is a virtual host" if $s->is_virtual();

   "keep_alive"
       Get/set the "KeepAlive" setting, which specifies whether Apache should accept more than
       one request over the same connection from the same client.

         $keep_alive      = $s->keep_alive();
         $prev_keep_alive = $s->keep_alive($new_keep_alive);

       obj: $s ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       opt arg1: $new_keep_alive ( boolean )
           If passed, sets the new keep_alive.

           Note the limited functionality under threaded MPMs.

       ret: $keep_alive ( boolean )

       since: 2.0.00

   "keep_alive_timeout"
       Get/set the "KeepAliveTimeout" setting (in microsecs), which specifies how long Apache
       will wait for another request before breaking a "KeepAlive" connection.

         $keep_alive_timeout      = $s->keep_alive_timeout();
         $prev_keep_alive_timeout = $s->keep_alive_timeout($new_timeout);

       obj: $s ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       opt arg1: $new_keep_alive_timeout ( integer )
           The expected value is in microsecs.

           Note the limited functionality under threaded MPMs.

       ret: $keep_alive_timeout ( integer )
           Returns the "KeepAlive" timeout value (in microsecs).

       opt arg1: $new_limit_req_line ( integer )
           If passed, sets the new request line limit value.

           Note the limited functionality under threaded MPMs.

       ret: $limit_req_line ( integer )
           Returns the request line limit value

           If $new_limit_req_line is passed, returns the setting before the change.

           If $new_loglevel is passed, returns the setting before the change.

       since: 2.0.00

       For example, to set the "LogLevel" value to "info":

       obj: $s ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       ret: $s_next ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       since: 2.0.00

       For example the following code traverses all the servers, starting from the base server
       and continuing to vhost servers, counting all available vhosts:

         use Apache2::ServerRec ();
         use Apache2::ServerUtil ();
         my $server = Apache2::ServerUtil->server;
         my $vhosts = 0;

           If passed, sets the new path.

           Note the limited functionality under threaded MPMs.

       ret: $path ( string )
           Returns the path setting.

       opt arg1: $new_port ( integer )
           If passed, sets the new port.

           Note the limited functionality under threaded MPMs.

           META: I don't think one should be allowed to change port number after the server has
           started.

       ret: $port ( integer )
           Returns the port setting.

           If $new_port is passed returns the setting before the change.

       obj: $s ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       opt arg1: $new_server_hostname ( string )
           If passed, sets the "ServerName" value

           Note the limited functionality under threaded MPMs.

       ret: $server_hostname ( string )

         $prev_timeout = $s->timeout($new_timeout);

       obj: $s ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       opt arg1: $new_timeout ( integer )
           If passed, sets the new timeout (the value should be in microseconds).

           Note the limited functionality under threaded MPMs.

       ret: $timeout ( integer )
           Returns the timeout setting in microseconds.

           If $new_timeout is passed, returns the setting before the change.

       since: 2.0.00

       Let us repeat again: the timeout values is microseconds. For example to set the timeout to
       20 secs:

         $s->timeout(20_000_000);

Notes

   Limited Functionality under Threaded MPMs
       Note that under threaded MPMs, some of the read/write accessors, will be able to set
       values only before threads are spawned (i.e. before the "ChildInit phase").  Therefore if
       you are developing your application on the non-threaded MPM, but planning to have it run
       under threaded mpm, you should not use those methods to set values after the ChildInit
       phase.

       The affected accessor methods are marked as such in their respective documentation
       entries.

Unsupported API

       "Apache2::ServerRec" also provides auto-generated Perl interface for a few other methods
       which aren't tested at the moment and therefore their API is a subject to change. These
       methods will be finalized later as a need arises. If you want to rely on any of the
       following methods please contact the the mod_perl development mailing list so we can help
       each other take the steps necessary to shift the method to an officially supported API.

   "addrs"
       Get the addrs value

         $addrs = $s->addrs();

       obj: $s ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       ret: $addrs ( "Apache2::ServerAddr" )
           Returns the addrs setting.

       since: subject to change

       META: this methods returns a vhost-specific Apache2::ServerAddr object, which is not
       implemented at the moment. See the struct server_addr_rec entry in
       httpd-2.0/include/httpd.h for more information. It seems that most (all?) of the
       information in that record is available through other APIs.

   "lookup_defaults"
       Get the lookup_defaults value.  MIME type info, etc., before we start checking per-
       directory info.

         $lookup_defaults = $s->lookup_defaults();

       obj: $s ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       ret: $lookup_defaults ( "Apache2::ConfVector" )
           Returns the lookup_defaults setting.

       since: subject to change

   "module_config"
       Get config vector containing pointers to modules' per-server config structures.

         $module_config = $s->module_config();

       obj: $s ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       ret: $module_config ( "Apache2::ConfVector" )
           Returns the module_config setting.

       since: subject to change

   "names"
       Get/set the value(s) for the "ServerAlias" setting

         $names      = $s->names();
         $prev_names = $s->names($new_names);

       obj: $s ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       opt arg1: $new_names ( "APR::ArrayHeader" )
           If passed, sets the new names.

           Note the limited functionality under threaded MPMs.

       ret: $names ( "APR::ArrayHeader" )
           Returns the names setting.

           If $new_names is passed, returns the setting before the change.

       since: 2.0.00

       META: we don't have "APR::ArrayHeader" yet

   "wild_names"
       Wildcarded names for ServerAlias servers

         $wild_names      = $s->wild_names();
         $prev_wild_names = $s->wild_names($new_wild_names);

       obj: $s ( "Apache2::ServerRec object" )
       opt arg1: $new_wild_names ( "APR::ArrayHeader" )
           If passed, sets the new wild_names.

       ret: $wild_names ( "APR::ArrayHeader" )
           Returns the wild_names setting.

           If $new_wild_names is passed, returns the setting before the change.
