The Number One HTTP Server On The Internet
Apache has been the most popular web server on the Internet since
April of 1996. The January 1999 WWW server site survey by Netcraft
found that over 53% of the web sites on the Internet are using Apache
(58% if Apache derivatives are included), thus making it more widely
used than all other web servers combined.
NOTES for end users:
- User binaries are ab|, htdigest|, htpasswd and logresolve|. Let me know
if there are problems with any of those and on which machine.
- The authentication schemes manages with dbmmanage and htdigest
are only available if the Apache server at your location is setup to
- The functionality provided by your Apache server depends highly on
the local server configuration.
- Please ask your local system administrator about details of your
server and not the package maintainer.
NOTES for system administrators:
- The above binary list only includes the commands that can be run by
the end user.
- The Apache server is called httpd and resides in the bin
directory below the package directory.
- As system administrator YOU must first configure the server
according to your requirements. See the INSTALL file for details
about what modules are available in the package.
- Most modules are compiled as DSO (dynamic shared modules) and can be
enabled or disabled in the httpd.conf file. You MUST edit this
file in the /usr/sepp/var/$packagename/ directory before starting
a server. Please refer to the Apache documentation for details.
- For mod_auth_sys you must adapt the checkPasswd program to you
chmod 4711 /usr/sepp/var/$packagename/bin/suexec
- For suexec to work you must
su croot -c 'chown root /usr/sepp/var/$packagename/$arch/bin/suexec'
Configure your server to run as User httpd and Group httpd
Configure user web directories to be ~/public_html
uidmin=100 and gidmin=40 for suexec
