Default Apache is going away in OpenBSD 5.6

Web server users will be interested in the following commit made today in CVS:

http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-cvs&m=139470541631278&w=2

Inclusion of the modified Apache 1.3 Web server will cease as of OpenBSD 5.6-release. [omna=8]httpd[/oman] is being removed from the base installation.

The time has come to learn nginx(8)...

It is time for BIND to go too. Replacing sendmail and BIND with smtpd and unbound is the most annoying thing on new OpenBSD installation.

It's funny that you mention that.

I like the move to OpenSMTPD much better than the move to Nginx.

OpenSMTPD is simpler and easier to configure than Sendmail.

Nginx has less features than Apache and this is a problem for me.

Nginx does not process cgi-bin files and must pass these off to another process/web server.

Why do I need Nginx if I must have another web server around anyway in order to process cgi-bin files?

If I were doing high volume web transactions and needed a reverse-proxy, then Nginx is ideal. But I have a low volume server that uses cgi-bin so using Nginx just makes the process more complicated (less secure).

No one's saying you can't use Apache, it's just a pkg_add away now.
www/apache-httpd-openbsd is the previously in-base Apache.

Thank goodness!

I've not tried the others listed above and I really don't want to try them; all my web server work is now in apache and I've recently decided to install OpenBSD (which, has been a "fun" fiasco - learning experience on my part); however, if apache were not available, I'd move on and look for something else.

Both apache servers are still available.

There will also be a new httpd(8) daemon for 5.6 release, a simple web server based on relayd(8).

Although based on relayd, it reminds me of NetBSD's bozotic HTTP server.
