NAME ^

Gantry::Engine::MP13 - mod_perl 1.0 plugin ( or mixin )

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Gantry::Engine::MP13;

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is the binding between the Gantry framework and the mod_perl API. This particluar module contains the mod_perl 1.0 specific bindings.

See mod_perl documentation for a more detailed description for some of these bindings.

METHODS ^

$self->apache_param_hash

Return a hash reference to the apache request body parameters.

$self->apache_uf_param_hash

Return a hash reference to the apache request body parameters unfiltered.

$self->apache_request

Apache::Request is a subclass of the Apache class, which adds methods for parsing GET requests and POST requests where Content-type is one of application/x-www-form-urlencoded or multipart/form-data. See the libapreq(3) manpage for more details.

$self->base_server

Returns the physical server this connection came in on (main server or vhost):

$self->hostname

Returns the virtual server name

$self->cast_custom_error

Called by the handler in Gantry.pm when things go wrong. It receives html output and a death message. It logs the death message and sets the html output via the custom_response routine of the request object. Returns FORBIDDEN status code.

$self->consume_post_body

This must be used by a plugin at the pre_init phase. It takes all of the data from the body of the HTTP POST request, storing it for retrieval via get_post_body. You cannot mix this with regular form handling.

$self->declined_response

Returns the proper numeric status code for DECLINED.

dispatch_location

The uri tail specific to this request. Returns:

    $self->uri, $self->location

Note that this is a two element list.

$self->engine

Returns the name of the engine, i.e. Gantry::Engine::MP13

$self->engine_init

Receives the request object and stores it in the site object. Returns nothing useful.

$self->err_header_out

The $r->err_headers_out method will return a %hash of server response headers. This can be used to initialize a perl hash, or one could use the $r->err_header_out() method (described below) to retrieve or set a specific header value directly

See mod_perl docs.

fish_config

Pass this method the name of a conf parameter you need. Returns the value for the parameter.

fish_location

Returns the location for the current request.

fish_method

Returns the HTTP method of the current request.

fish_path_info

Returns the path info for the current request.

fish_uri

Returns the uri for the current request.

fish_user

Returns the currently logged-in user.

$self->get_arg_hash
    returns a hash of url arguments.

    /some/where?arg1=don&arg2=johnson
$self->get_auth_dbh

Same as get_dbh, but for the authentication database.

$self->get_cached_config

Users should call get_config instead.

Pulls the config object out of the pnotes so Gantry::Conf doesn't have to regenerate it repeatedly. (See set_cached_config.)

get_config

If you are using Gantry::Conf, this will return the config hash reference for the current location.

get_cached_conf/set_cached_conf

These cache the Gantry::Conf config hash in pnotes. Override them if you want more persistent caching. These are instance methods. get receives the invoking object, the name of the GantryConfInstance, and the current location (for ease of use, its also in the invocant). set receives those plus the conf hash it should cache.

$self->get_dbh

Returns the current regular database connection if one is available or undef otherwise.

$self->get_post_body

If consume_post_body was used by a plugin during the pre_init phase, this method returns the consumed body of the HTTP POST request.

$self->header_in

The $r->headers_in method will return a %hash of client request headers. This can be used to initialize a perl hash, or one could use the $r->header_in() method (described below) to retrieve a specific header value directly.

See mod_perl docs.

$self->header_out( $r, $header_key, $header_value )

Change the value of a response header, or create a new one.

$self->is_connection_secure()

Return whether the current request is being served by an SSL-enabled host.

$self->is_status_declined

Returns a true value if the status is currently DECLINED or false otherwise.

$self->log_error( message )

Writes message to the apache web server log

$self->port

Returns port number in which the request came in on.

$self->print_output( $response_page )

This method sends the contents of $response page back to apache. It uses the print method on the request object.

$self->redirect_response

Returns the proper numeric status code for REDIRECT.

$self->remote_ip

Returns the IP address for the remote user

$self->send_error_output

Returns the content of custom_error. It gives $@ to the custom_error method.

$self->send_http_header( $r )

Send the response line and all headers to the client. Takes an optional parameter indicating the content-type of the response, i.e. 'text/html'.

This method will create headers from the $r->content_xxx() and $r->no_cache() attributes (described below) and then append the headers defined by $r->header_out (or $r->err_header_out if status indicates an error).

See mod_perl 1.0 docs.

$self->server_root

Returns the value set by the top-level ServerRoot directive

set_cached_config

For internal use. Used to place a config hash into pnotes for reuse during the current page request.

$self->set_content_type()

Sets the content type stored in the site object's content_type attribute on the apache request object.

$self->set_no_cache

Sets the no_cache flag in the apache request object with the value for no_cache in the site object.

set_req_params

Sets up the apreq object and the form parameters from it.

$self->status_const( 'OK | DECLINED | REDIRECT' )

Get or set the reply status for the client request. The Apache::Constants module provide mnemonic names for the status codes.

$self->success_code

Returns the proper numeric status code for OK.

url_encode
  url_encode($value)

Accepts a value and returns it url encoded.

url_decode
  url_decode($value)

Accepts a value and returns it url decoded.

$self->file_upload

Uploads a file from the client's disk.

Parameter: The name of the file input element on the html form.

Returns: A hash with these keys:

unique_key

a unique identifier for this upload

name

the base name of the file

suffix

the extension (file type) of the file

fullname

name.suffix

size

bytes in file

mime

mime type of file

filehandle

a handle you can read the file from
