About the FreeBSD WWW Server

The Machine

Powered by FreeBSD

The machine is a dual 600MHz Pentium III set up with 1024 megabytes of RAM and about 70 gigabytes of disk space. The mail processing duties for the domain are handled by, a dual 600 MHz Pentium III with 1024 megabytes RAM and about 16 gigabytes disk space. Inbound mail is buffered via, an 800MHz Pentium III with 512 megabytes of ram and 30 gigabytes of disk. Outbound mail is relayed via, an 850MHz Pentium III with 512 megabytes of ram and 18 gigabytes of disk.

Naturally, these systems all run FreeBSD. The hardware and network connection have been generously provided by BSDi, Yahoo!, and other contributors to the FreeBSD project.

A complete list of all host names in the domain is available at the The Network page.

The Software

Powered by Apache

These pages are served up by the versatile and efficient Apache http server. In addition, there are a few locally crafted CGI scripts. Indexing of these pages and the mailing list archive are provided by freewais-sf, a derivative of the CNIDR freewais.

The Analog web statistics package is used to provide these statistics on web server usage.

The Pages

Lynx Friendly logo

The original web pages were put together by John Fieber <> with input from the FreeBSD community and you. <> was our first webmaster but this responsibility is now shared by a larger team of web and documentation contributors. The FreeBSD pages are valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional and should degrade gracefully on any browser.

Page Design
