Apache and Modules? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Does apache require modules to run? I have a small 486sx with masquerading etc. The kernel is monolithic. Can I run apache on a monolithic box?...

    Yes. Apache can use modules but not the kind your thinking about.

    If you mean "kernel modules", Apache http server does not require any specific kernel part (not even
    the minimalistic httpd server that can be compiled inside the kernel): this is a "pure" user-mode
    application (it might need root privileges to bind ports below 1024, but there is no kernel part in
    Apache).

    Apache also has modules of its own (such as "mod_perl") that are used to extend its capabilities (in
    the cas eo f "mod_perl", providing a persistent Perl execution environment): these are not kernel
    modules!

    Why not...

    But as for using Apache (be it 1.3.x or 2.0.x) on a 486 pc, I would suggest looking at alternatives
    with much smaller footprint like:

    fnord [url]http://www.fefe.de/fnord/[/url]
    thttpd [url]http://www.acme.com/software/thttpd/[/url]
    min_httpd [url]http://www.acme.com/software/mini_httpd/[/url]
    micro_httpd [url]http://www.acme.com/software/micro_httpd/[/url]

    And many others...
    (look here [url]http://freshmeat.net/search/?q=server&section=trove_cat&trove_cat_id=250&filte r=250[/url] for
    example)

    Mind you, I like Apache, but I am not sure about putting it on a 486... :o}

    Have a nice day,
