Integration of QGIS mapserver to svn?

Andrea Peri
I don't know this plugin,

but remenber a very old product from ESRI called.
"ArcView for IMS" .
That was an extension for arcview3 to be able to produce map for the web.

The main problem was that the server must be logged in to produce a map,
because the software need an environment and a GUI.
Because this need of to be logged with an user to produce some maps that product was few usable and disappered early from market.

I don't know if qgis is able to work without an environment and a GUI.

Hi Andrea,

QGIS mapserver works as an Apache fcgi. So to enable QGIS-mapserver you copy the executable to a directory configured for FCGI, enable fcgi in Apache (easy to do in most Linux distributions) and start Apache. You don't need to be logged in - also no GUI is needed. I am not sure if it requires an XServer on the server at compile time, probably not. There will be more information on installation soon.

Hi Andrea

No GUI and no x-server is required for QGIS mapserver.
The map picture is directly rendered into an offscreen buffer (QImage).

Regards,
Marco
