Gambas httpd server

Post by ocoquet » Saturday 02nd January 2021 2:46pm

Hi all, happy new year from France,

Here is an httpd server based on a class file.
It is not completely http1.0 compliant but, i work for that.
Actualy, this is what it can do:

Serve html pages from a directory.
Serve Index.html if no page is given by the navigator.
Serve err404 page from directory when asked page do not exist.
give the control to a main program when a *.gbp page is asked by the navigator (something like php ;) ).
and much more.....

Look in the web forum for details of this first beta.

Enjoy
Olivier
The downloadable file is complete source (class + Main form sample), it will be upgraded every time I'll add functionality or bug corrections. Last changes will be described in below messages.

Hi all, I'm proud to show you last changes of Gambas Basic Httpd server class.
V 0.0.13 (04/01/2021)
Download upgraded version at first message bottom

Big changes and small bugs corrections:

-Bug correction, if requested page is not present in web-docs, no error 404 is written in log_file, it's now corrected.
-Bug Correction, http_log file have no extension, now it has a *.log extension.
-Bug Correction, Server-sockets was never closed, they are now closed each time a page is completely sent.

-NEW Function, public encrypt function in class to encrypt and save logins and passwords in password file.
-NEW Function, public function for verifying login and password with registered version in password file.
- A new public var is added to the class, it determine the crypto-mode as this:
Public Crypt_Mode As Integer = 1 'mode d'encryptage utilisateurs et password 1=DES, 2=MD5,3=SHA256,4=SHA512

Tips:
- There is some controls added to the sample form which is present in source code.
- Tow textboxes (login & password). When you fill them, click on create to register them encrypted in password file. Click on test login to see if
login and password are retrieved from password file.
- The sample index.html page in web-docs is modified with login fields and button to test passwords, look at the main class to see how this work.
It's my first *.gbp sample.

regards
Olivier

Hi All, here are last changes (18/01/2021)
V0.0.17

- Finalization of the modification of the processing procedure, all the arguments are now exploited by their name and not by their order of arrival (more secure).
- Added the main Mime types up to the letter "J".
- Modified the userpwd.txt file which now contains the date of last connection of a user.
- Changed the ListUser function which now returns the username and last connection in the string array (including the date of last connection).
- The Processing function is called systematically on all pages with the argument "Replace", this allows to replace text between {} by what you want (for example for a version number on each page).
- Added a variable at the head of the class, indicating the version of the class.
- Transformation into a component and first tests in this form.
- Modification of the ListUser function which now returns an array of collections (Name,Date,Time).
