  • Apache auth_ldap - support for LDAP over SSL, and a mode that lets Microsoft Frontpage clients manage their web permissions while still using LDAP for authentication.
  • Apache mod_atrack - module adds advanced user tracking functionality. It reduces the annoyance of sending multiple cookies to a single user and allow more intelligent analysis of collected data.

    mod_auth_ldap for Netscape or OpenLDAP servers (Good HowTo)
  • Apache mod_backhand module for cluster load balancing
  • Apache mod_cgisock module to 'cut loose' the CGI script from Apache memory space
  • Apache syntac highlighting (like old mod_color) module performs text file syntax coloring of source files. Preconfigured for C/C++ ("c-source"), yacc/bison ("yacc-source"), lex/flex ("lex-source") and perf/gperf ("perf-source").
  • Apache mod_dav module enables Apache to understand the "Distributed Authoring and Versioning" (DAV) protocol (extensions to HTTP) defined by RFC 2518. DAV is intended to replace proprietary authoring protocols such as those used by Frontpage or NetObjects' Fusion, but is also a complete set of protocols for manipulating a webserver's files and directories, and their properties.
  • Apache mod_dynvhost module for dynamic virtual hosting on the fly.
  • Apache mod_fastcgi module to provide high performance and cgi persistence without the limitations of server specific APIs.
  • Apache mod_hosts_access module allows you to use hosts.allow and hosts.deny files to configure access to your Apache webserver.
  • Apache mod_jive module to "jive" coresponding text and html pages.
  • Apache mod_log_spread module to provide an interface for spread to multicast access logs. Solves the problem of collecting consolidated access logs for large web farms.
  • Apache mod_ntlm module to authenticate against NTLM (used in Microsoft based Intranets. Password validation is done through Windows NT or Samba machines over TCP/IP.
  • Apache mod_perl module is a persistent PERL interpreter embedded in the server which avoids the overhead of starting an external interpreter and the penalty of Perl start-up time.
  • Apache mod_proxy_add_forward.c module that allows you to get the client IP back on the proxied host.
  • Apache mod_roaming module allows you to use the Apache webserver as a Netscape Roaming Access server. This allows you to store you Netscape Communicator 4.5 preferences, bookmarks, address books, cookies etc. on the server so that you can use (and update) the same settings from any Netscape Communicator 4.5 that can access the server.
