November 1997 Newsletter of the

Front Range Unix Users Group

The Cndnsd Vrsn: 4pm Tuesday November 25 ACS Rm 123 - Apache Web Server Experience


This Month's Meeting: Apache Web Server Experience

This months meeting will consist of a panel of speakers with broad experience on the free Apache web server. Apache has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April of 1996. The November 1997 WWW server site survey by Netcraft found that more web servers were using Apache than any other software. Apache and its derivatives totaled 49.97% of all web sites on the Internet.

We will have four speakers each give a short presentation followed by a question and answer panel discussion. Howard Fear (Redcape Software) will introduce the concept of Apache Modules and describe some work he has done that ships with the Apache distribution. Randall Gaz (Xor Network Engineering) will descibe the Apache API and some work he has done for Denise Raven (Lili Information Systems, Inc.) will give an overview and describe how to install and configure the Apache web server. David Denney (Dimensional Communications) will describe his experience configuring Apache to serve multiple virtual web sites.

Meeting Location

The next meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group will be in room 123 of the CU Academic Computing Center building at Arapahoe and Marine Streets in Boulder. Marine St intersects Arapahoe at 38th St; the Computing Center is on the southwest corner.

From Addision-Wesley, we have JDBC Database Access with Java,

From O'Reilly & Associates, we have Webmaster in a Nutshell, which includes a CD-ROM containing five of their Web-related books. In addition, they've sent us a copy of Photoshop in a Nutshell.

Finally, The USENIX Association continues to keep us up-to-date with conference proceedings. This month we've received the proceedings of the Eleventh Systems Administration Conference (San Diego, October 26-31), and the Conference on Domain-Specific Languages (Santa Barbara, October 15-17).

You may check books out using your business card as your library card; you must be on the membership list to check books out. Books are due at the meeting following the one in which they are checked out. If you don't return your library books by the next meeting, you might find yourself on our overdue book list. We count on you returning books on time so that other members may have the chance to use them as well.
