Running Appweb on OpenWRT

Posted on 2011-10-18
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have recently been developing a system that uses SquashFS, JFFS2, and mini_fo based on OpenWRT.  Everything is working fine except for Appweb 3.3.1.

I know that there are specific instructions on building Appweb for OpenWRT, which I think is needed to have Appweb running correctly on my system.

I would like to know if anyone out there can help me find out what compilation configurations are being used to get things working for OpenWRT?

    I am not sure this will help you or not.

    I determined that most configurations will work on OpenWrt.  I was able to run Appweb fine on OpenWrt.  But for my platform, which is not OpenWrt, but uses the mini_fo filesystem is not working.

    Essentially what I see is that CGI pages will load, but none of the Javascripts, images, or CSS files are getting loaded.

    Accepted Solution

    Found that Appweb CGI does not process properly unless Logging is set to level 3 and up.  But was not able to get a clear response from Appweb developers as to why this occurs.

    So current solution is to ensure that the appweb.conf Logging is NOT 1 or 2.

    Solution is a workaround, and not an absolute fix.
