Yes you need to run endtcpsvr to bring the program down.

However you may be able to replace the program without bringing the
server down - it all depends.

That prompts the question I've often considered but haven't tested. With
that setup, leaving LR off and compiling into a named activation group,
does the program only end when the http server is dropped?

CGI programs will never cache in Apache - but if you keep the CGIDEV2
program
active it shouldn't be a problem.

That would simplify my issue since I wouldn't have to changed all the
links
to the home page on all the other static pages. How would that affect
caching of the page? Given it is a program call can I assume that it
would
pull every time?

The easy way is to make a index page that points to a cgi program

<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<script language="JavaScript">
parent.location.href="/pextcgi/pxsession.pgm"
</script>
</body>
</html>

A index page on the apache can either be served as a static file or
from
a CGIDEV2 program.

That is the short version

I'm running the Apache server on our IBM i that serves our public data

our
cgi programs. Never considered other options like PHP since up to this
point everything can be done with RPG/CGIDEV2 if it isn't static. Now
I
have need of dynamic data on our home page. This data doesn't
necessarily
change daily but would need to reflect any changes when they are made
in
our physical files. In this environment would you suggest an Apache
include
call to a cgi application or make the entire home page dynamic getting
rid
of the static index.html. If the entire home/index page went dynamic
would
I have to give the call a dot three extension for this to work? I've
noticed PHP sites have the .php extension. I do realize that if I use
an
Include statement it changes the extension from html to shtml which
prompts
what extension, if any, would be needed for a CGI home page.

I've been hesitant to reach out to this group for topics such as this.
If
this is the wrong forum for this please let me know. Thanks to Kelly
and
her SPA thread that prompted some rather good conversations regarding
options that aren't necessarily 400 related but is served from the 400
I
figured I'd give it a shot. I really enjoyed the topic and the
thoughts
of
everyone who contributed. Some resources were given that I will most
definitely benefit. I'm in a small shop and the only exposure I get to
advances in tech on the 400 is through my own personal research and
self
education. It's hard to decide what things I should try to learn to
use
on
our server without hearing from others about joys and pitfalls of
trying
it
on the 400. I pretty much have free reign to use whatever I want as
long
as
licensing isn't financially onerous.
