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.
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.
