A Patchy Web
Audience level:


Not a team to rest on their laurels, the Apache httpd team has released version 2.4, which drags httpd into the 21st century. In this talk, you'll see what's new, what's changed, and what's better.


Author of several Apache httpd books, and member of the httpd documentation team, Rich Bowen has been around the httpd project for over a decade. In this talk, you'll get an overview of everything that's new in 2.4, and deep-dive into the more interesting and powerful features.

If you're considering moving from 2.2 to 2.4 - or if you haven't yet - you should be at this talk, so that you can harness the full power of this significant new release of the Apache http server.

Topics covered include:

  • Loadable MPMs
  • New logging functionality
  • Per request configuration sections (the <if> syntax)
  • Configuration file variables
  • Finer .htaccess controls
  • New modules ... and more as we have time
