apache http server, web site design and hosting by RasadaCrea, Grenoble - France

Apache is a powerful general purpose web server, designed to provide a balance of flexibility, portability, and performance, capable of working on a wide set of different platforms and environments. Its modular design allows for extending the core functionality through compiled modules as far as there is a specific need to satisfy. Although it has not been designed specifically for performance, Apache hits high performances in many cases. At RasadaCrea , we encourage the usage of Apache web servers whose features can span from server side programming language support to authentication schemes:

  • Programming support for Python, Perl, Tcl, PHP
  • Popular authentication modules such as mod_access, mod_auth, mod_digest, mod_auth_digest
  • Apache virtual hosting allowing for serving different web sites from within the same Apache installation
  • Proxy apache capability with mod_proxy and SSL support through mod_ssl, compression with mod_gzip
  • Custom log apache files with mod_log_config and filtering support with mod_include and mod_ext_filter
