Expanding Apache's Capabilities with Modules

One of the nicest features of Apache is its modular plug-in design. Developers can easily expand the capabilities of the Apache web server without forcing the end users to recompile their server software or make complex configuration changes. In this section, we'll be looking at a handful of modules—some included with Tiger, others that you'll need to download and compile. These are just a tiny sample of what is available for the world's most popular web server:

mod_dav Enables the WebDAV protocol for cross-platform sharing of files via HTTP

mod_mp3 Creates a SHOUTcast-compatible streaming MP3 server

mod_bonjour Advertises your Apache sites over the LAN using Apple's Bonjour technology

Mod_rewrite Rewrites local URLs based on regular expressions and can proxy remote content through a given URL
