Description:
PHP/FI HTML programming language A server-parsed language for webpages, which supports complex commands, access counters, hit logging, file uploads, and more, without the overhead of interpreters like perl. Both the Apache module and the CGI binary are included in this package.

When recompiled from source, this language can also support web access to mSQL, Sybase, Postgres95, mysql, and Solid databases. More information is available at http://www.vex.net/php/.

Description:
modules for perl5, for use in writing CGI scripts. In addition to this package, you will also need the URI::Unescape class, which is part of the libwww-perl package.

This perl 5 library uses objects to create Web fill-out forms on the fly and to parse their contents. It provides a simple interface for parsing and interpreting query strings passed to CGI scripts. However, it also offers a rich set of functions for creating fill-out forms. Instead of remembering the syntax for HTML form elements, you just make a series of perl function calls. An important fringe benefit of this is that the value of the previous query is used to initialize the form, so that the state of the form is preserved from invocation to invocation.

Depends:
perl, libwww-perl

Description:
utility to retrieve files from the WWW via HTTP and FTP Wget [formerly known as Geturl] is a freely available network utility to retrieve files from the World Wide Web using HTTP and FTP, the two most widely used Internet protocols. It works non-interactively, thus enabling work in the background, after having logged off.

The recursive retrieval of HTML pages, as well as FTP sites is supported -- you can use Wget to make mirrors of archives and home pages, or traverse the web like a WWW robot (Wget understands /robots.txt).

libc5 (>= 5.4.0-0)

Maintainer:
Johnie Ingram <johnie@debian.org>
Description:
Highly versatile, high-performance HTTP server The most popular server in the world, Apache features a modular design and supports dynamic loading of extension modules at runtime. Some of its strong points are its range of possible customization, dynamic adjustment of the number of server processes, and a whole range of available modules including many authentication mechanisms, server-parsed HTML, server-side includes, access control, CERN httpd metafiles emulation, proxy caching, etc. Apache also supports multiple virtual homing.

This release of the Apache server can replace any Apache server already installed with any standard module and guesses which modules should be loaded by looking at the site configuration files. Any site-specific modules that were previously linked into Apache can then be dynamically loaded at startup.

libc5 (>= 5.4.0-0), ldso (>= 1.7.14), mime-support, perl

Description:
Analyzes logfiles from www servers Analog is a fast httpd logfile processor that generates usage statistics for your web server.

Features:
* It's fast. Very fast (processes 200 days of logs in 5 minutes on a
P-166).
* It's very flexible. The default output will be satisfactory for
most people, but there are over 180 options producing 17 different
reports for those who want to do things differently.
* It can output in 4 different languages, and 3 output formats.
* It produces attractive output that complies with the HTML spec
(and so can be read on any browser).
* It understands the common log format as well as the NCSA old-style
format and the NCSA/Apache referer log, agent log, error log and
combined log. Uncompresses them on the fly if necessary.
* It can be run at the command line or from a web form interface.

Christoph Lameter <clameter@debian.org>
Description:
Lightweight and High Performance WebServer Boa is a single-tasking HTTP server. That means that unlike traditional web servers, it does not fork for each incoming connection, nor does it fork many copies of itself to handle multiple connections. It internally multiplexes all of the ongoing HTTP connections, and forks only for CGI programs (which must be separate processes.) Preliminary tests show boa is about twice as fast as Apache, and is capable of handling 50 hits per second on a 66 MHz '486.

Description:
Secure WebServer with Indexing etc This Webserver runs from inetd.conf.

WN is especially well suited for servers that must also perform other tasks. Both a standalone daemon and a version intended for use under inetd are provided. The inetd version is designed to minimize the use of system resources and it is appropriate for moderate or lightly loaded servers which cannot be totally dedicated to Web serving.

The design of WN emphasizes security and functionality. It is based on the use of a small flat database in each directory with information about the files in that directory. Fields associated with a file include its title, and may include keywords, expiration date and any user defined fields like author or document id.
