Tutorial: Nginx Apache front-end (CentOS 5)

Up
vote
Down

Nginx (pronounced "engine X") is a lightweight, high-performance Web server/reverse proxy and e-mail (IMAP/POP3) proxy, licensed under a BSD-like license. It runs on UNIX, GNU/Linux, BSD variants, Mac OS X, Solaris, and Microsoft Windows. Apache's performance is generally very good as well. However, in a resource-constrained environment , Apache does not necessarily provide optimal performance or resource utilization. One of the "best practice" approaches to reducing the strain on Apache is to let a leaner lighter web server take over the serving of the site's static files (images, javascript, css, etc.), leaving the heavy lifting of serving the dynamic content to Apache. This tutorial shows how you can set up Nginx as front end to Apache for ISPConfig 2 On CentOS 5.x. read more...

Many SSL web sites on one IP with Apache 2.2, GnuTLS (Debian Lenny)

Up
vote
Down

This tutorial describes how you can host multiple SSL-encrypted web sites (HTTPS) on one IP address with Apache 2.2 and GnuTLS on a Debian Lenny server.
Pound, a reverse proxy, can be used to provide an SSL front end to multiple back end web apps, web sites, and java apps. This isn't really the same thing as the article provides - it is not name-based virtual hosting to SSL. It isn't perfect, but works surprisingly well.

Basically, you install the SSL cert into pound.cfg and listen on port 443. Then configure multiple backends and proxy names to normal HTTP (non-SSL) services running either on the same or different machines. read more...

Tutorial: mod_spdy, Apache2 on Scientific Linux 6.3

Up
vote
Down

SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY") is a new networking protocol whose goal is to speed up the web. It is Google's alternative to the HTTP protocol and a candidate for HTTP/2.0. SPDY augments HTTP with several speed-related features such as stream multiplexing and header compression. To use SPDY, you need a web server and a browser (like Google Chrome and upcoming versions of Firefox) that both support SPDY. mod_spdy is an open-source Apache module that adds support for the SPDY protocol to the Apache HTTPD server. This tutorial explains how to use mod_spdy with Apache2 on Scientific Linux 6.3. read more...

Tutorial: Set up a two-node Apache cluster on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

Up
vote
Down

This tutorial shows how to set up a two-node Apache web server cluster that provides high-availability. In front of the Apache cluster we create a load balancer that splits up incoming requests between the two Apache nodes. Because we do not want the load balancer to become another "Single Point Of Failure", we must provide high-availability for the load balancer, too. Therefore our load balancer will in fact consist out of two load balancer nodes that monitor each other using heartbeat, and if one load balancer fails, the other takes over silently. read more...
