Chapter 17. HTTP Clustering and Load Balancing

17.1. HTTP Server name conventions

The following tables outline the naming and location conventions used when discussing HTTPD-related topics.

Table 17.1. Apache HTTP Server provided by operating system

Operating System HTTPD_CONF.D HTTPD_CONF HTTPD_MODULES
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (httpd) /etc/httpd/conf.d /etc/httpd/conf /etc/httpd/modules
HPUX (Web Server Suite) See note below. /opt/hpws/apache/conf /opt/hpws/apache/modules

Note

There is no conf.d in HP-UX's Web server Suite for Apache HTTP Server. You can create one, however:

Procedure 17.1. title

  1. Create /opt/hpws/apache/conf.d.
  2. Add Include conf.d/*.conf into the httpd.conf file.

Table 17.2. JBoss Enterprise Web Server

Operating System HTTPD_CONF.D HTTPD_CONF HTTPD_MODULES

/usr/lib/httpd/modules
rpm

Note

Path variances:

  • If you are using a 64-bit architecture, amend the filepaths from the table above to use the lib64/ directory.
  • If you are using a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 installation, the httpd directory is named httpd22.
