Since build 18.104.22.168 Helicon Ape is equipped with brand new mod_developer module.
Revised mod_developer is capable of dispaying standard server-side debugging info:
- server variables
- request processing duration
as well as Ape-specific details:
- environment variables
- merged server configuration (httpd.conf)
- merged local configuration (.hatccess)
- server and rewrite logs
With new mod_developer debugging of mod_rewrite rules is faster and easier as now you can see the hierarchy of subrequests invoked by RewriteRule.
To show you mod_developer in action we’ve created a special demo site. It’s a WordPress blog working with Ape and having mod_developer enabled for all visitors.
To touch live mod_developer follow the link: http://moddeveloper.helicontech.com/?ape_debug=secure-key-1231234
Note! Debugging security is ensured by
mod_developer environment variable. This variable stores unique secure key which only you should know. To start debugging simply request http://yoursite.com/path/to/debug/?ape_debug=secure-key-XXXXXXX.
Debuggung may also be enabled form Ape Manager (Options → Start Ape Debugger). In this case secure key is generated automatically and is pasted into your current configuration.
Please feel free to test our mod_developer and post your impressions in comments.
