Hi,

for an intranet project in our company I have problems with iis and try to
migrate to apache. Apache is avaliable for windows or cygwin, but graphical
remote configuring apache was left. As I'm using webmin for other linux based
web server, I tried to use webmin on cygwin for doing this.

So I've downloaded camp 0.9 and webmin 0.88 and install it under cygwin 1.3.3.

Then after installing webmin I run into problems, because the main page could
be loaded, but if entering other pages in the server area ,for example apache,
fails with a "500 bad header" error.

Because my perl knowledge isn't good enough to understand and analyse
this problem with webmin's miniserv (with perl 5.6.1), I tried to configure
the camp distribution to enable apache configuring with webmin.

Now it's working, except authentification. Currently it uses a default
user 'admin' which is set in the apache VirtualHost configuration.

To enable webmin with the apache server, add/patch the below mentioned files.
Currently I have tested not very deeply, so there might be some more
places to patch, but for me it works.

Limitations:
1. restarting/stopping/starting apache does not work, because the webmin
   frontend depends on the apache server and doing this actions causes
   lost connections. So you have to restart apache remote over telnet or
   something else.

Installation
============
1. Install camp										http://apache.dev.wapme.net/packages/

2. Install webmin 								http://www.webmin.com
 	 use the "Linux from scratch" operations system

3. patch the below mentioned files.

4. restart apache

5. Start a browser and enter 	http://webmin/
	 (if you have used the below mentioned servername and HOSTS entry)

Note: Because my apache and webmin configuration knowledge is only
      very basic, please don't ask me for relating configuration hints.
      If you have questions, please look in the faq or mailing list on
      the relates web sites.

Have fun
