Varnish

Varnish was updated to 2.1.3. The main changes are:

   * The scalability of critbit, the default hashing method, has been improved
   * A bug in varnishd would in some cases confuse varnishncsa leading to lost or wrong log lines.
   * Some bugs in the handling of Range requests has been fixed. This only matters if you enable Range support.
   * Add «log» command to VCL which will log to the Varnish log.

Apache

Introducing

Fedora can be used as great web-server, based on Apache, which included in distributive.


Before starting

Before starting httpd, you should accept all input connections to http port in iptables. Usually it's 80.

iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT

eth0 - is your ethernet device.

After that, see chain INPUT in iptables - insert

iptables -L

You can start httpd by:

If you want to restart or stop httpd, use the following commands:
