`make test` very dependent on port 8999
Date: Thu, 19 Feb 2004 14:57:08 -0800
I had to modify runtests.pl to use a different value for $HOSTPORT
since port 8999 is in use on my server (see
http://curl.haxx.se/mail/archive-2004-02/0084.html). It seems an easy
workaround that users can make...
But I think many of the tests verify that the server's reply contains
so they fail.
This isn't worth fixing, but it would be nice if
a) tests/runtests.pl always printed the ports its servers use
b) tests/README mention that the tests assume some fixed port numbers.
Here's a "patch" for b) to tests/README :-)
*** 10,24 ****
perl (and a unix-style shell)
diff (when a test fail, a diff is shown)
stunnel (for HTTPS and FTPS tests)
- port 8999 available on localhost for HTTP tests
- port 8433 available on localhost for HTTPS tests
- port 8921 available on localhost for FTP tests
- port 8821 available on localhost for FTPS tests
- The test suite runs simple FTP and HTTP servers on these ports to
- it makes requests.
'make test'. This invokes the 'runtests.pl' perl script. Edit the
variables of that script in case you have some specific needs.
-- =S Page P.S. It's impressive that curl's authors wrote an HTTP server in the tests directory. I will convert my company's site to use it -- who needs a 14-server Apache cluster? :-)Received on 2004-02-19
