Wii Web Server
Dev time: 68 Hours
File:Wiiwebserver.zip - ZIP containing the meta.xml for alpha v0.73 and an icon.png
Boot using normal methods *cough* HBC *cough*.
Once running, will run itself.
To quit, type "//quit" at the end of the web-address, so - "192.168.0.X//quit", will now return to HBC.
NOTE : In version alpha v0.74 onwards, the //quit now requires you to press A on the wiimote to allow
This stops any random user from shutting down the server.
NOTE : In version alpha v0.76 onwards, the //quit can new be followed by ? then your password if specified
An example is //quit?putyourpasswordhere
An example of the XML file to place on you SD card in /data/settings/wiiweb.xml is (also uploaded to sourceforge)
<?xml version="1.0"?> <settings password="putyourpasswordhere"> </settings>
If no wiiweb.xml is found then the old method of using the wiimote can still be used.
Place your html files in /data/web/ on the root of your sd card, must be inserted before the app is loaded. Use data.zip for demo files.
In verions alpha v0.81 onwards, in the xml (link below) a custom error page can be specified by
<?xml version="1.0"?> <settings password="putyourpasswordhere" 404="/four04.html" 500="/five00.html" denied="/denied.html"> </settings>
If no file is needed just put "nofile" in the place of the file path
There is no directory listing and your homepage must be called "index.html"

the server remotely using //quit?password (see README)

|alpha v0.61||Removed the /a and the old testpages since they are no longer needed.|
|alpha v0.6||Can now send any file size (thanks to joedj's ftpii write_exact function)|
Ditched GRRLib to make the server smaller in size

|alpha v0.24||Changed /a to //a and /quit to //quit to avoid conflicts|
Request parser rewritten, now quicker and more streamlined
|alpha v0.23||Now doesn't have to restart the server to serve more than one page |
(i.e pressing B then A)
Quitting the server is from a server path of "/quit"
|alpha v0.22||Handles links|

Please post new bugs on the talk page instead of here :-)
For anymore bugs, they should only be posted if :-
- They are security related
- They affect usage
If anyone has an idea then a patch (not in a .patch file) could be submitted to me by any means !!!
|Directory traversal vulnerabilities allows people to
sneak out of the web root. Ops, now people can "borrow"
|Done||Now blocks all ./ and ../ in path names||High|
|Fixing of folders to index.html is hardcoded and not
heuristic and will fail for sub-directories.
|500 pages uses 404 lengths||Done||Changed _404_html_size to _500_html_size||Medium|
|Indention issues, try just writing it like "else if"
and don't add any extra indention, it keeps the indention
|Done||Changed to else if||Low|
|Directories without an ending / is not redirected to
the same url, but with a slash
|Request specific info is stored in globals
(not safe for multi threading in the future)
|Done||used same idea as wiihttpd||High|
|Exact server version is not in the http reply headers||Done||Made the server version a variable and attatched it||Low|
|Date header is hardcoded to the past.||Done||Added time.h and worked out the date||Low|
|'?'s in URLs are not used properly as argument passers
(eg http://wiihostedexamplesite.com/index.html?a=b gives a 404
|If it gets a reading error (ie you remove the SD card) it should display error 500, rather than displaying an error only on the Wii itself then dumping back to HBC, causing the PC to timeout and the server to go down. Although that could be a problem since it might need to read error 500 off the SD card with the new custom error feature, it could be avoided by loading that error into RAM at the start as long as it isn't too big (in which case it should error at start and refuse to run).||Done||instead of exiting will show the built-in error 500 page
having issues with loading it into ram for long times
The following file types have proper mime types associated with them.
"Lump of fun"
Everynow and then, a special release of the wii web server will be released that contains a hidden "lump of fun". Result can be posted on the talk page under "Lump of fun". Who will be the first to screendump it, evidence must be a full screendump or it will be discounted.
The first - "find the sucking lump of fun"
Cboomf - Main code
Felix123 - SD card code
Teknecal - Threading basis, %20 handling, HEAD method routine, time in headers
Joedj - the write_exact function from ftpii
Muzer - pre-release testing
Henke37 - advise and help
Twiizers - starting the ball rolling
