Correct Grid Services Configuration for 0.6.6 release version (svn 9993) - UGRM?

Ai Austin
Should svn 9993 (0.6.6 release) work with UGRM (R for SA and I) and
is that the "correct" config to aim for?

I have spent some time trying to get new configuration for a version
0.6.6 system from the installer for windows ion the
http://opensimulator.org entry page... upgrading from a 0.6.3 version
from April 2009. Can someone in the core team advise on what is the
correct and fixture direction facing configuration to use for the
services, as I know I can run with UGAIM in legacy style, or with the
ROBUST services running the A and I elements or just the A element
too it seems.  I just don't want to spend more time than I need to
changing configurations.

I already have realised that theOpenSim.Server.ini.example file
included with 0.6.6 does not include the entries needed for the
Inventory Server, but I found those at: http://opensimulator.org/wiki/ROBUST

I think I have a UGRM (with R Inf A and I) now and it seems to be
coming up and even authenticating SL Viewer 1.23 users at login.  I
am just getting stuck at the point where the region handshake takes
place. With SL Viwer on same computer as the UGAIM services and a
region, or coming in from another viewer with access that worked with
0.6.3.  I have not yet worked that out as the region XML file IP
addresses look okay to me. If anyone can give a pointer there to save
some time it would be helpful.

Re: Correct Grid Services Configuration for 0.6.6 release version (svn 9993) - UGRM?

Chris Hart
I run 0.6.6 / svn 9993 without the new R console, sticking to regular
consoles - lots of stuff happened after that release so while those
running current code have the new shiny ROBUST, back in the olden days
of a month ago, UGAIM was still the way to go... hence you shouldn't
need the server.ini changes at that point

The region xml files will work just fine, there is the option of using
the newer ini style region information too, if you prefer that style.

Welcome web page on V0.6.6

Karen_Palen
In reply to this post by Ai Austin
I understand that this should set up a splash page for /usr/lib/opensim/bin/welcome/welcome.html and that the html page will be displayed on the viewer before login.

(from /usr/lib/opensim/bin/opensim.ini)

    ; login page: optional: if it exists it will be used to tell the client to use
    ;                       this as splash page
    ; currently unused
    welcome = http://192.168.1.101/welcome

I get only a black screen what do I need to do here?

That setting is from the GridInfo section... after you configure this section,
you'll need to use a viewer which supports GridInfo (e.g. Meerkat, Hippo) and
point them at your user server.  More info here:

Hmmm, where should I put the html file with my opensim.ini spec. then?

In /bin or somewhere else?

I have a feeling that I am missing something there.

Your HTML welcome page goes on any web server.  The only thing the "welcome"
setting in OpenSim.ini does is, when your user server gets a GridInfo request
("hey, where do I find this grid's welcome page?") it replies with that URL
("you can find it here at http://foo.bar.com/welcome").

Re: Welcome web page on V0.6.6

Karen_Palen
Ok I understand what Grid Info does, and that works fine.

I think I need to ask a more basic question then - do I need a separate web page server like Apache or does OpenSim have one built in?

I am confused!

Here is a transcript of a conversation I had on IRC about this:

* #opensim :[freenode-info] if you're at a conference and other people are having trouble connecting, please mention it to staff: http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#gettinghelp
<karen> I have a problem with the welcome screen option can anyone help?

<Bwild_> What's the problem?
* qbist has quit (Read error: 145 (Connection timed out))
* justincc (n=justincc@80.175.122.121) has joined #opensim
<karen> I want to add a welcome screen to my grid. I see th eoption to enable this in OpenSim.ini, but do I need to add a separate server like Apache?
<Bwild_> no
<Bwild_> opensim includes a http server
<karen> will the OpenSim package handle that?
<Bwild_> yes
<karen> Ah great then all I need to do is add a .jpg file and set th e.ini?
<karen> Sounds too easy LOL
<Bwild_> cat OpenSim.ini | grep  Welcome | sed -e 's/OpenSimulator/MySims/g' > OpenSim.ini_new
<Bwild_> 'mono OpenSim.exe --inifile=OpenSim.ini_new'  should do the trick

Re: Welcome web page on V0.6.6

Chris Hart
The welcome page can point to any web page on the Internet, local or remote, could even be an image. The splash screen is just a web browser displaying whatever you tell it to display in that welcome section in the grid info (or using the -loginpage switch on a startup shortcut). Hence if you want to have lolcatz as your splash screen go right ahead - however if you are talking about displaying a specific web page with dynamic content then you will need to have some web server somewhere hosting it.

Make an HTML page called http_loginform.html in your Opensim/bin
directory and that will; be served as the content area of the SL
Viewer if you use the loginuri parameter to your SL Viewer.  We use
ours to show a full screen image snapshot of our region for example.
There is an example in the bin directory that may give you some
ideas, but we don;t use the login form fields in that.

Yes, I agree that this is confusing since it isn't clear whether OpenSim
will serve up the splash page or not.  To the best of my knowledge
OpenSim will not act as a web server and provide the page for you.  You
will need a separate web server.  At least, that was the solution that I
found.  When I had this problem a while back.

Re: Welcome web page on V0.6.6

Benjamin Smekens
Its quite simple, ask yourself the question on what 'flavour' of splash page you want. Do you want something static like just a picture depicting your world, or would you like something more advanced like statistics and real-time grid information. If it is the former you are after, static html will do just fine, and OpenSim will handle this just fine in displaying it to the user(Technically speaking OpenSim does nothing more than pointing towards the html/image document). If you want the latter however, you will need a server side script collecting and displaying that data to the user, so in that case you would need a asp/php/perl-cgi equipped webserver(Which in term will interpret your OpenSim data and than display it to the user).

It thus becomes a case where you decide what you want and act upon your needs.


Regards,

Ben

Re: Welcome web page on V0.6.6

Karen_Palen
For the moment I would be happy with a static page!

There IS a file in bin called HttpServer.dll and HttpServer_Opensim.dll,
but so far I have not been able to get even a static page to show up on either the Hippo viewer or the Meerkat viewer.

Both viewers show the splash pages on secondlife and osgrid so I am fairly confident about that end of things.

I have tried various places for my welcome.html (a jpg with text - totally static), as well as copying the http_loginform.html in various permutations of the name!

Still no joy.

Yes, that was my experience as well.  Starting up my own Apache server
and service a static page from that was the only way I could get it to
work.

It was never clear to me that the OpenSim software would do anything
other than report the URL in the ini file to the viewer, and evidently
only some of the viewers (Hippo or Meerkat) will even notice. Using the
SL viewer it seems best to use the command line switch on the viewer
side to point to a URL that is served up by some other web server to get
the splash page.

What frustrates me is that I DID have it running a year ago when I first played with OpenSim then put it away as being "neat, but too fragile for now"..

I should have saved the OpenSim.ini file at least :-(

Re: Welcome web page on V0.6.6

Mhhh, rather than putting a URI in the .ini file pointing towards some web-location, I presume that you have pointed towards some relative .html file inside the grid server folder right? It should just work if you put a relative path there. If it doesn't than I guess your last resort is to quickly fire up Apache, with current LAMP and WAMP packages that should be nothing more than a 5 minute job either. I wish you the best of luck, but I guess that it is probably not worth the time trying to make it work with a relative path if it continues to misbehave :-) An alternative to setting up your own web server would be to just get a free hosting account somewhere and to host it from that location.

Cheers,

Ben

Re: Welcome web page on V0.6.6

I have to admit that installing Apache and setting it up would be far less work LOL.

HMM - I didn't even know about the grid server folder!

Sadly it didn't help, but I will try a couple of permutations.

My main motivation at this point is wondering if OpenSim has this capability or not.

With Ubuntu I know that installing the latest version of Apache is a matter of about a dozen keystrokes (I have it running on another machine), but it could simplify file and process management later.

Eventually I expect to move this whole project to a remote VPS hosting service using Ubuntu/SSL remote login, but I want things pretty solid before I add the extra complexity.

Right now I am just having fun with standalone :-)

Anyway thanks for the pointer to the folder, I will let everyone know if I do get it working.

Re: Welcome web page on V0.6.6

Teravus Ovares
It does have a HTTP server that serves a 404 message to regular
requests.   It also serves a default 'login page' if you ask it for
the right address.

http://192.168.1.99:9000/?method=login, works for me, for example, if
my loginURI is http://192.168.1.99:9000/.

Serves up default pages under those circumstances.   Those default
pages are customizable by doing a few steps.

To customize those pages, look for the .html.example for that file,
rename them and remove the .example from the end of the file name.
Then open them up in your favorite HTML editor and tweak them to your
liking.

The html files are served up from the bin folder and are named the following:

404 page: http_404.html.example
500 page: http_500.html.example
login page: http_loginform.html.example


To get the login page you suggested to work, you will need to
customize http_loginform.html.example and rename it to
http_loginform.html    Then edit your client's shortcut and add
-loginpage <loginpage address>

If you do that correctly, then the viewer will show your loginpage
instead of the SecondLife loginpage.

Best Regards

Teravus
