Verifying downloads with signatures

5
Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

It says there are signatures to verify the downloads, but there are no instructions about how to do the verification.

I found this link helpful: https://httpd.apache.org/dev/verification.html

I'm not sure if it would be good to add it to the page or not. Ideally we should write basic instructions so they can be translated.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

Yeah, a very good idea. This would help enable a wider audience to do this.

Composer found a smart way of verification.

Git: not just for devs

Summary by Gerdesj

Two positive responses seems more than enough! Documentation in progress

Gerdesj (talkcontribs)

For some time now I have been using git to grab particular releases (wmf.x) for my corporate wiki. As far as I can tell, I am basically doing what the biggest users of this software are doing (on a rather smaller scale) and gaining the benefit of getting arguably the best supported version at a point in time and the most functionality.

I've pretty much got updates to the: *yawn*, do it (whilst having a glass of wine) with minimal downtime.

I have pretty complete docs for installation and updating using git (--depth=1) and a system of symlinking to avoid nasty surprises and make switching from one version to the next very rapid whilst providing a way back.

Anyone have any problems with me pushing git installs on this page as a reasonable way to install the software beyond simply for development?

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

No, at least I do not have any issues with this. Perhaps you could create a dedicated subpage describing your process and link to it from here just to avoid this page to get crowded.

Gerdesj (talkcontribs)

Yes, a subpage would be a good idea.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

I'd say go for it! :)

Gerdesj (talkcontribs)

User:Gerdesj/GIT Install - work in progress. When I've dusted down the basics I'll move it into place

Siebrand: It is done.

Should we really remove all PHP4 mentions now? It's ancient...
