If I'd Known Then: Apache httpd Panel Discussion - Jim Jagielski, Roy Fielding, Ken Coar, Randy Terbush, Dirk-Willem van Gulik
Waaaaay back in 1995, when the WWW was still shiny and new, a group of programmers decided that they should band together to keep an abandoned web server project working, because they relied on it. 20 years on, the Apache Web Server is still the number one httpd on the entire Internet, and that project is now one of more than 160 at the Apache Software Foundation. Some of those original founding members have graciously joined us to kick off our httpd track talking about how things were then, and whether the project has measured up to their expectations and dreams.

Begone mod_php! - Jim Riggs, Rustici Software
As we celebrate 20 years of the Apache httpd server, another project is also celebrating 20 years: PHP. For better or worse (depending on your own personal preferences), PHP is here to stay for the foreseeable future. According to w3techs.com, PHP is still used as the server-side language on 82% of sites!

Most operating systems include ports and packages for both httpd and PHP, and the most common way to combine the #1 web server and #1 server-side language is with the Apache module. This has caused many issues with things such as threading, resource usage, and security. In this talk Jim will describe and demonstrate the conversion of a site from mod_php inside httpd to PHP-FPM via mod_proxy_fcgi. This conversion allows you to treat PHP like the application it is and let httpd do what it does best: serve content quickly and efficiently. It is time to finally do away with mod_php!
