HippoHroch486 Home Page

This used to be an experimental WWW server but a long time ago it was turned into a production site.

The Apache documentation is also installed here.

Apache This is not a dedicated WWW server, this is just a PC which is used for everyday interactive work (including program development and debugging). Multitasking and multithreading in OS/2 is so good that a single PC can serve all these purposes at the same time. The PC was originally (several years ago) equipped with processor 80486 at 66 MHz with 16 MB RAM and 512 MB HD (and Apache worked fine on it!). I started with Apache 1.1.3 and found that it was very easy to do things which I did not manage to do with MS IIS on Windows. Moreover, the PC was shared by several users. The nickname of the main user was Hroch which means Hippo. Thus the machine name was and will always be hroch486 (links to this computer exist on a great many sites). Nowadays the server runs on Fedora GNU/Linux.
