1 nmav 1.4 This is Hydra, a modification of Boa, which supports multiple threads of
2 nmav 1.3 execution. Boa is a high performance web server for Unix-alike computers,
3     covered by the Gnu General Public License. This modification is based on
4     Boa version 0.94.13, and is currently of alpha quality.
5 nmav 1.1
6 nmav 1.3 Why Hydra? Well, Hydra is a many headed serpent in Greek Mythology, and
7     seemed to resemble fine a multi-threaded Boa. An interesting feature of
8     Hydra is that head, when cut off was replaced by two others. This was not
9     duplicated in Hydra's threads!

11 nmav 1.4 *****
12     Configure time parameters:
13 nmav 1.3
14 nmav 1.4 --disable-ssl: Disables SSL and TLS support. You must have the gnutls library
15     for SSL to work.
16    
17     --disable-smp: Disables all of the thread stuff. Hydra will function just like
18     Boa.
