Oracle HTTP Server is a robust, reliable Web server based on the Apache HTTP Server, version 1.3.28. It includes these major components:
- HTTP Listener: Oracle HTTP Server is based on an Apache HTTP listener to serve client requests. An HTTP server listener handles incoming requests and routes them to the appropriate processing utility.
- Modules (mods): Many of the standard Apache modules are included with Oracle HTTP Server, as well as several internal modules that are Oracle-specific.
- Perl Interpreter: Oracle HTTP Server provides an embedded, persistent Perl runtime environment through mod_perl.
