Z. Wagner - Apache/2
I started to use Apache in 1996 (it was
version 1.1.3) for these reasons:
I had had the possibility of placing my WWW pages to a WWW server running in
Windows NT. I had read the Common Gateway
Interface specification, yet I was not able to make and run any CGI script (ASP did not exist
by that time). Installation of Apache in OS/2 from zero knowledge up to the first functional CGI
script of my own (written in Rexx) took just 5 minutes!.
Apache for OS/2 runs well even on a
processor 80486, 66 MHz, 16 MB RAM) and it is sill possible to use the machine
interactively for program development and debugging at the same time.
Apache supports scripting languages PHP and Perl and enables use of databases, e.g. MySQL.
Apache enables creation of multilingual WWW pages using Content negotiation.
Application of the Apache server is the basis for the project of
Computing via World Wide Web.
I developed a few tools for use with Apache:
- Web Tools:
a script for testing HTML forms and a script for checking validity of links on
modification of the
rotlogs program for rotation of the Apache log files
Rexx scripts for creation and signing zertificates in OS/2
a Rexx script (for OS/2) which monitors availability of selected network services and
can automatically restart daemons
I wrote HOWTO for file
upload in PHP.
A PHP script for testing the cryptographic module
available from my private page icebearsoft.euweb.cz/php/.
I wrote a document on content negotiation in PHP scripts.
You can find more information on the main
page of this server.
