Chapter 2. Enhancing Web Server Performance

To activate the enhanced Apache Web server with SGI performance improvements, do the following:

  1. Log in as root or use the su(1) command to switch to root.

  2. Change to the apache directory:

    # cd /usr/sgi/ise/apache

  3. Run the INSTALL script:

    # ./INSTALL

    This script will rebuild Apache and install the improved performance changes. Apache will be restarted at the end of the script and be ready for use.
