[atomic-testing] Apache 2.4.1

Unread post by scott »

This is the intial development release for the 2.4.x Apache branch on El6 (Cloudlinux 6, RHEL 6, Scientific Linux 6, and CentOS 6). For a full list of features in 2.4:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/new_ ... s_2_4.html

From what I've read the 2.4 branch is all about performance. Over the next few weeks I'm going to throw this into the test lab to see how it handles with the intent of adopting it both for the tortixd daemon, and as a standard package in the [atomic] repo.

I think I'm going to make another channel called [quantum] for projects like this. Every apache module has to be rebuilt for it. PHP, mod_security, mod_evasive so far. I suspect the others like mod_perl, python, etc will need it too.

Apache is currently consuming too much memory.
The new version (2.4) is supposed to be the "response" to nginx in memory consumption and performance.
I was thinking of using nginx but if the new apache can do the job that would be awesome !

Yeah in my first tests its considerably smaller, around 11mb when I started it up. Bare in mind I havent gotten to the point of having all the modules built for it so its possible that its that way because its empty at the moment.
