I have recently switched web server for FuzedBulb.com. As a matter of fact, FuzedBulb.com never had a physical hosting. It was simply a web redirector (URL forwarder) to TheGravityDesigns.com (another domain that I own). Now I have moved FuzedBulb.com to a server and hosting setup of its own. TheGravityDesigns.com stays intact, however, it now forwards all its traffic to FuzedBulb.com (using Apache’s URL re-writing feature).
While I was doing so my nerve for messing around started twisting. My undying charm and fascination with Load Balancing overwhelmed my sane senses. As a result FuzedBulb.com had been out for around 2 days a week or so back. And if you notice the website that you are browsing this very moment is being served by www3.fuzedbulb.com (which by the way is the only server available at the moment). I have done similar crap sometime in the past as well. The only difference now being that this time I knew (to some extent) what and how I am going to carry out the tasks.
Anyhow, the site is back up and online. Some of the parts and subsites are still not working and are unavailable; something that I will fix as and when I get some free time.
While carrying out these exercises I used Apache and some of its features alot that includes .htaccess, mod_rewrite and mod_spelling. I did a write-up / tutorial on it and I am uploading it here for those of you who are interested.
|The Unknown Apache
In this article I will brief you some of Apache’s incredible features that are not very well-known and quite frankly developers aren’t even aware of its existence in the first place. Developers can greatly harness these features and utilize them in a million different ways that end up in having a powerful web application.
