HP is pleased to provide you with Version 2.2, a new HP supported, customer release version of the HP Secure Web Server for OpenVMS (based on Apache).

The Secure Web Server (SWS) is part of the Web Server Suite for OpenVMS, which also includes CSWS_JAVA (Tomcat), Perl for OpenVMS and CSWS_PERL (mod_Perl) and CSWS_PHP (PHP and mod_PHP).

SWS Version 2.2 is based on Apache 2.0.63 and is primarily a bug fix release.

Also available for download is the HP supported, customer release version of the SWS Version 1.3-1 for OpenVMS Alpha and Integrity servers. (Versions 2.2,
2.1-1 and 1.3-1 run on OpenVMS Alpha Version 7.3-2 and 8.2 and higher, and OpenVMS Integrity servers Version 8.2 and higher.)

Important Support Notice  OpenVMS Alpha Version 7.3-2 and OpenVMS Version 8.2 (Alpha and Integrity servers) are the last releases on which the SWS Version 1.3-* is supported. OpenVMS Alpha Version 7.3-2 is the last release on which SWS Version 2.0 is supported.

The functional replacement for SWS Version 1.3-* and SWS Version 2.0 is SWS Version 2.2. New features and enhancements to SWS are provided beginning with SWS Version 2.1, which is based on the Apache 2.0.* open source code base.

SWS Version 1.3-* and SWS Version 2.0 will be supported while OpenVMS Alpha Version 7.3-2 is in Prior Version Support (PVS) status, and SWS Version 1.3-* will be supported as long as OpenVMS Version 8.2 is supported. Support for these SWS versions will include remedial fixes and security fixes as deemed appropriate.

The SWS is a powerful, flexible, HTTP/1.1 compliant web server that includes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) through mod_ssl and OpenSSL. SSL provides privacy through encryption, server authentication, and message integrity.

OpenVMS with Apache, OSU, and WASD The Nonstop Webserver Order this book from Digital Press and learn how to successfully run a web server on an OpenVMS system.

The SWS for OpenVMS is based on Apache, the world's most widely deployed web (HTTP) server - millions of Internet servers are powered by Apache. OpenVMS users, familiar with Apache on other platforms, can now take advantage of the resources of Apache's open-source software development community to run a web server that enjoys an unparalleled level of testing and deployment.

Please see our Contributors Page for a list of people who have contributed their time and effort to the Web Server Suite project. These contributors have provided links to ported products such as the SWISH-E query interface ("simple web indexing system for humans - enhanced"), ht://Dig, a complete world wide web indexing and searching system, and MySQL for OpenVMS.

Version 1.3-1 of the SWS is based on the Version 1.3.26 release from the Apache Software Foundation. Version 2.2 is based on Apache 2.0.63.
