Welcome to Oracle HTTP Server


Oracle HTTP Server is a robust, reliable Web server based on the Apache HTTP Server, version 1.3.28. It includes these major components:

  • HTTP Listener: Oracle HTTP Server is based on an Apache HTTP listener to serve client requests. An HTTP server listener handles incoming requests and routes them to the appropriate processing utility.
  • Modules (mods): Many of the standard Apache modules are included with Oracle HTTP Server, as well as several internal modules that are Oracle-specific.
  • Perl Interpreter: Oracle HTTP Server provides an embedded, persistent Perl runtime environment through mod_perl.


Details on configuring Oracle HTTP Server are available in the Oracle HTTP Server Administrator's Guide, located on the documentation CD included in your CD pack. The installation documentation is located on the Companion CD in your CD pack.

The Oracle HTTP Server documentation is also available from Oracle Technology Network at

mod_plsql user's should refer to the "Creating a DAD" section in the Oracle HTTP Server Administrator's Guide.
