Configuring the Server to Automatically Process W3-mSQL Files

W3-mSQL provides a programatic interface to the mSQL database system from within an HTML document. It enables the development of entire programs within a WWW page while offering comprehensive access control and security features.

W3-mSQL achieves this by providing a complete programming language embedded within an HTML document. The language, called Lite, is similar is style and syntax to the C programming language and the ESL scripting language. Using W3-mSQL and the embedded Lite language, you can generate HTML code "on-the-fly" in the same way you do when you write custom CGI programs. What's more, you can mix normal HTML code with W3-mSQL code so that you only need to use the CGI styled approach where you actually have to.

To install W3-mSQL on your virtual server, connect to your Virtual Server using Telnet or SSH and untar the W3-mSQL archive file into your virtual server directory structure:
    % cd    (this will put you in your home directory)
    % vinstall w3-msql
W3-mSQL enhanced html files must be preprocessed by the ~/www/cgi-bin/w3-msql executable before the server sends the results to the requesting client. Normally, this preprocessing requires the ~/www/cgi-bin/w3-msql executable to appear in the URL of each W3-mSQL file on your site:

The Apache Web Server can be configured to automatically preprocess W3-mSQL files with the .msql file extension. To setup W3-mSQL redirection, add the following lines to the httpd.conf file on your virtual server:
    AddHandler htmsql msql
    Action htmsql /cgi-bin/w3-msql
After doing this, it is possible to access W3-mSQL files this way:
The .msql files are automatically pre-processed by the ~/www/cgi-bin/w3-msql CGI without the ~/www/cgi-bin/w3-msql CGI appearing in the URL path.
