HoMaC Web Site
Project Page |
HoMac is a set of tools for management of virtual Web Sites. it is coded
Perl and PHP, using MySQL as the backend for data storage. it will
work with Apache and Linux, maybe can work with other WebServers and
OS too, but we had only tested the above combination.
If you wonder if this software is being used by some one? well i had
knowledge of 1 instalation working and other in progress. both by big ISP,
one has over 600 Web Sites.
The idea behind homac, or better yet, what's the ideal setup for an
homac based shared web hosting is as follows:
but this is not mandatory, you can also run all of this into 1 server, and this
way of course you didn't need a separated Disk Server.
1 Disk Server (NFS Server)
Some people may ask when HoMaC make is first presentation, well
it was like 1 or 1 and a half year ago, on the ISP where i work for, since i
got sick and tired of people from the commercial area to ask me how many
shared web sites we are running on our server. so i start homac as an list
of the sites, then i put the on a sql server, and so on, also we suffer the pain
of add the shared web hosting by hand, introducing human error wich can
make the web server to crash, and i was the one who was blamed for that
always, so i said "no more , no one else touch the web server
config files" and this was the start of HoMaC, also this way i had
never again had to add web sites. the first version, or release 0 of homac,
wich is no public, and maybe it will never be. (i may release it but is really
ugly coded, but works(tm)).
About Security, well homac was never coded with security in mind,
there are no or almost no string check code for input from the web pages
or database, you may ask why, well the administration console has been
designed to be run on a secure environment, maybe an internal server with
access to the main DB Server, where only authorized people can make
changes. ok i know most of the crack attemps are from the internal
networks at companies, but, hey, if you gave the password to some one, at
least take the time to explain the basic , or write the HoMaC Documentation
Homac v1.0 is not yet done, we had just reached version 1.0Alpha1, i
hope release at least 2 or 3 alpha, some betas , few RC, and then final
version , and then we hope start working on Version 2 of HoMaC wich will
include a lot of new features.
