Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On Fedora 17

This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with nginx on Fedora 17. While nginx itself does not serve CGI, there are several ways to work around this.

Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on a Fedora 17 server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support.

Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On Fedora 17

SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY") is a new networking protocol whose goal is to speed up the web. It is Google's alternative to the HTTP protocol and a candidate for HTTP/2.0. SPDY augments HTTP with several speed-related features such as stream multiplexing and header compression. To use SPDY, you need a web server and a browser (like Google Chrome and upcoming versions of Firefox) that both support SPDY. mod_spdy is an open-source Apache module that adds support for the SPDY protocol to the Apache HTTPD server. This tutorial explains how to use mod_spdy with Apache2 on Fedora 17.
