       nanoweb.conf - Nanoweb main configuration file


       The  file  nanoweb.conf  is  the main configuration file of the Nanoweb
       HyperText  Transfer  Protocol  server  and  contains  all  the  general
       settings  that  must  apply  to  all files served from your host. It is
       usually located in the directory /etc/nanoweb/.

       Some parts of the configuration are seperated out of the main file, but
       this  man  page  anyhow  only  discusses  a very small subset (the core
       directives)  of  all  possible  settings.  For  further  and   uptodate
       information  please  refer  to  the  manual on http://localhost/manual/
       using your favorite browser.


       The configuration files are divided in sections whose names  are  given
       in  square brackets, we’ll only discuss the main (which is the biggest)
       part in this man page:


       All other sections define virtual hosts. But see the  file  vhosts.conf
       for an example of what this means in practice.

       In any section you can assing values to the configuration directives in
       this form:

       directive = value...

       Starting from Nanoweb 1.8.1 you can leave out the equal sign.


       These are the core configuration directives that can  be  used  in  the
       [global]  section  (most  of them can be used in virtual host sections,
       too).  You’ll see some example settings for them in this man page.

       ServerName =
            Defines the default server name Nanoweb will respond to and  with.

       ServerAlias = *
            Is an additional dns name glob the server will accept.

       DocumentRoot = /var/www
            Defines  the  base directory under which all files must be located
            in, if they should be accessible via http.

       DirectoryIndex = index.php index.html
            If one of the files specified with this directive is  found  in  a
            directory  it  gets send in favour of a server generated directory

       ServerMode = standalone
            This tells Nanoweb to run in standard mode, which is  to  work  as
            standalone  server  daemon.  The  other  possible  setting here is

       DefaultContentType = text/plain
            If a file type can not be automagically  determined  for  a  file,
            Nanoweb will tell it’s of the mime(1) type specified here.

       Include = /etc/nanoweb/modules.conf
            This  directive  loads another Nanoweb configuration file into the
            current one and leads of course to processing  of  the  directives
            specified therein.

       MimeTypes = /etc/mime.types
            Loads  the  given  file  which  should contain all known file name
            extensions associated with the according mime(1) types.

       ParseExt = php CGI /usr/bin/php $SCRIPT_FILENAME
            Associates a file extension with a parser,  commonly  a  scripting
            language interpreter like perl(1) or php(1)

       AccessFile = .htaccess
            Files  with  the  name given here may contain additonal directives
            that apply to the directory (and subdirectories)  they’re  located

       ErrorDocument = 404 error404.php
            Gives  a custom error response file which gets send instead of one
            of the builtin error messages, whenever  one  occours  ("file  not
            found" in this example).

       User = www-data
            Sets  the  user  id  the  Nanoweb daemon will run as. Normally you
            don’t want nanoweb to  run  with  root  privileges.  Likewise  for

       Log = /var/log/nanoweb/access.log
            The servers log file.

       IgnoreDotFiles = 1
            Do  not  deliver  files  whose  name  begins  with  a dot (usually
            referred to as "hidden files").

       AllowExtSymlinks = 1
            Deliver files which are symlinked to outside of the  DocumentRoot.

       ListenInterface =
            The network interface Nanoweb shall listen on. When set to
            the server will listen on all available network cards (lo, eth0 as
            well as ppp0 on Linux boxes).

       ListenPort = 80
            The  TCP  port  address  the  server  should  listen to. 80 is the
            default for webservers, so you don’t want to change this.


                 The  main  configuration  file,  but  following   parts   are
                 seperated out of it in the standard distribution:

                 This  part  of  the  main  configuration  loads the extension
                 modules and defines additional directives for them.

                 This part of the Nanoweb configuration  defines  the  virtual
                 hosts and directives that only apply to them.
