4.0 Configuring Apache HTTP Server on OES Servers and in Clusters with Novell Cluster Services

The Apache HTTP Server is an open source web server developed by the Apache Software Foundation. On an Open Enterprise Server (OES) 11 or later cluster, you can use Novell Cluster Services to cluster the web content for your personalized websites. The Apache service is not cluster aware and must run on each server in the cluster.

Clustering your website content helps make your website highly available for your customers. With Novell Cluster Services, if your web server fails, you can use any of the servers in the cluster to host your website, which results in virtually zero down-time for your customers.

This section describes key considerations for configuring the Apache virtual hosts for your personalized websites.
