The documentation on adding a custom application to the control panel makes sense to me. The documentation on installing an application from source also makes sense to me (I've done that before). But I'm confused about how I can connect the two. Can I install an application from source using the usual configure, make, make install and then somehow add that to the control panel as a custom app listening on a port? Or do I need to install it from the control panel somehow? If so, how do I go from a tarred source file to an installation script for the control panel?

When you create a custom app listening on port in the control panel, then any domain you connect to that will have its incoming requests on port 80 redirected to the port assigned to the app in the control panel. Therefore, all you need to do is ensure that your app installed from source is running and listening on that port then it will receive the incoming connections.

Thanks, I'll make sure to configure my application to the appropriate port.
