Deploying the Apache HTTP Server within the Apache Software Foundation
JustinErenkrantz, Ph.D. Student, University of California, Irvine

Track: Apache
Date: Wednesday, July 28
Time:2:35pm - 3:20pm
Location:Salon C


This talk will overview how the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) uses Apache HTTP Server 2.x within its own infrastructure to allow ASF projects to create effective and visible project websites. However, there is no commercial organization that operates the installation instead, a collection of volunteers are used to maintain proper operation of the site. This combined with the non-profit nature of the ASF, places a number of constraints on how the site can be effectively managed.

Specifically, this talk will discuss:

  • An overview of the ASF websites and services
  • The constraints imposed by being a non-profit, volunteer organization
  • The underlying technical infrastructure of the ASF
  • The organizational structure for support
  • How ASF projects deploy their sites to the server
  • Deciding when to deploy builds
  • Deploying new builds
  • Responding to failures and outages
  • Adoption of Subversion and WebDAV by the ASF
