  • OWST uses the at-command to schedule the next call of the Timer Program Handler.
  • The webserver must be able to handle PHP files in order for the web interface to work.
  • PHP can either be run as module (e.g. mod_php in Apache), as CGI or FASTCGI (php running as a separate daemon).
  • The user/UID under which the code of the web interface is run must have access to the same at-queue as the user/UID who runs the timer program handler.
    • This can be accomplished by either using the same UID for both tasks (web interface and Timer Program Handler), or to grant the web-UID access to the at-queue of the UID which handles the timer programs by using sudo.
  • To configure the single switches you need to edit the SQLite database table 'switch' manually. You can do this on the command line, you can use the SQLite web interface phpLiteAdmin or any other user interface to edit SQLite databases.
