We don't need the old one anymore. Any objections?

-- TWiki:Main/MichaelDaum - 18 Aug 2008

Yeah, we don't need the old one anymore. smile

However, I suggest to use twiki_cgi, since there are other engines that will use similar names, like twiki_fastcgi. wink

-- TWiki:Main.GilmarSantosJr - 18 Aug 2008

Okay, so let's delete twiki and remove the .pl from the others.

-- TWiki:Main.MichaelDaum - 18 Aug 2008

I would very much appreciate that URLs are as pretty as possible and if the _cgi is part of the URL then it is not really pretty.

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 19 Aug 2008

_cgi is not part of URL. After the changes on Item5805, there are two options:

  • Use traditional bin scripts (the same way all older versions worked. this way, twiki_cgi is not needed)
  • Point /twiki to /bin/twiki_cgi (instead of /bin), so the "view", "edit", etc become part of PATH_INFO (this way, regular scripts are needed only for CLI usage)

No matter what choice you make, URL's will be the same as they always were.

-- TWiki:Main.GilmarSantosJr - 19 Aug 2008

That's right. I like the "one for all" approach very much smile

I renamed the summary to reflect the name change from 4.3 to 5.0.
