WWW serving & NeXTStep

WWW serving & NeXTStep

Post by Shane M Zateza » Thu, 14 Dec 1995 04:00:00



I'm looking for people who are admins for web-servers which
are NeXTStep based, preferrably running NCSA 1.5.xx & NS 3.3.

My goal is to share information in hopes to speedup performance -
our server been getting slower and slower. (colorslab, 32megs ram,
NS3.3, NCSA 1.5a, primarily httpd & ftp)

I'm especially interested in finding out if anyone is operating
a web &/or ftp server on more than one machine - in two weeks
I'll have a slab available (ns3.3,32megs) which I would like
to split either the www or ftp onto.

Please post any replies. Thanks!

Make sure you have the 3.3 Patch from NeXT installed.
Make sure that you don't have anyone logged in, and don't run the
WindowServer (by typing "console" in the login panel).

Changes you can make that cost money:
1) Add more RAM.
2) Get faster drives.
3) Upgrade to faster hardware; a 25 MHz 68040 is not a horribly fast CPU
nowadays.

1. mount NeXTSTEP filesys under Linux / boot NeXTSTEP with LILO?

I suspect these are a FAQs, but couldn't find anything about it so far:

One of the machines i administer is a 486 PC, which until recently ran
NeXTSTEP. We've now built in a second SCSI disk contianing Linux
(DLD distribution with 1.1.72 kernel - runs fine, so far).

What's the elegant way do decide, which system to start at boot time?
Does LILO work with NeXTSTEP, or does NeXTSTEP provide a better
bootstrap loader?

Is there a way to mount NeXTSTEP filesystems under Linux?

Thanx in advance
Armin
