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 1.8 Why Hydra? Well, Lernean Hydra was a nine headed, monstrous serpent in
7 nmav 1.7 Greek Mythology, and seemed to resemble fine a multi-threaded Boa. An
8     interesting feature of Hydra is that a head, when cut off was replaced by
9     two others. This was not duplicated in Hydra's threads!
10 nmav 1.3
11 nmav 1.6
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.
19    
20 nmav 1.6 --disable-hic: HIC is a special hydra thread that handles scripting languages
21     such as PHP. Use this parameter to disable this feature.
