Programming IBM HTTP Server documentation

Configuring the server

You can get started quickly without making any configuration changes. If you need to encrypt the data being exchanged between the clients and the server, use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). You can get started with secure connections by making only a few configuration changes.

Pertains to Linux PPC users If you run the IBM HTTP Server on the Linux for PowerPC (PPC) operating system, you need to add the Listen directive to the configuration file to enable SSL. If you do not specify this directive, you will receive a PEER_ID_NOT_SET error in the error log when you try to connect to the server.
Pertains to Windows users If you run the IBM HTTP Server on Windowsoperating systems, you can easily configure the Fast Response Cache Accelerator to boost performance.

You can also make many other configuration changes with Apache directives.
