    Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On Scientific Linux 6.3 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 Scientific Linux 6.3.

My solution is to log only the errors with all the details to a small database. This database contains tables for the message, the corresponding stack trace and the important environment variables. I have chosen for an SQLite database in this howto, but the same principle works with other databases as well.
