With this release comes a minor change in behavior: for requests that have been configured with RFileEval, RFileHandler, or using the r-script handler, rApache will set the working directory to the file’s directory.
For instance with a Rook deployment like this:
<Location /hmisc> SetHandler r-handler RFileEval "/home/hornerj/Hmisc/config.R:Rook::Server$call(app)" </Location>
It makes sense to change the working directory to /home/hornerj/Hmisc. That way, the examples in the Rook package can work without change.
<Directory /home/hornerj/rapache/test/brew> SetHandler r-script RHandler brew::brew </Directory>
and a request of /home/hornerj/rapache/test/brew/simple.html, it
makes sense to set the working directory to:
Or if the request was
/home/hornerj/rapache/test/brew/subdir/foo.html, it makes sense to set
Yay for minor releases!
