[Chameleon] Chameleon with Windows 2k and IIS
Tue, 9 Dec 2003 16:33:18 +0100 (CET)
Hi Nicolas,

I can give some brief answers, but for more elaborate ones you will need
input from the guys at DmSolutions.

I can tell you what needs to be done in Apache, and perhaps you are able
to translate this to IIS.

In httpd.conf from Apache:

Alias /ms_tmp/ /ms4w/tmp/ms_tmp/

SetEnv PROJ_LIB /ms4w/proj/nad/

For PHP Chameleon "needs" the following:

session.save_path = /ms4w/tmp

Is there a specific reason why you are using the 1.0.4 version? The 1.0
version will be deprecated in time and the 1.1 version is the one to go
with. Although it is alpha, the core is pretty stable.

I would recommend installing MS4W (with Apache and PHP preconfigured),
then see how everything functions, and map this to IIS.

-latest Chameleon 1.1 alpha as an MS4W package
-Chameleon sample application

With regard to the Mapscript binaries with Oracle. The binaries for
Mapserver which have Oracle Spatial support are built by somebody at the
University of Minnesota. The PHP Mapscript are built by DmSolutions, and
they don't provide one with Oracle Spatial support as far as I know.

But you can always use the principle of Cascading WMS to have the
mapserv.exe serve the Oracle Spatial data.

Hope this is of some help.

Best regards,
