IBM HTTP Server on z/OS: Migrating from Domino-powered to Apache-powered

A draft IBM Redpaper publication


Users of IBM z/OS for the past several years have had a choice of two HTTP Servers that they can use. Now one has become strategic while the other will become unsupported. IHS powered by Apache supports IPv6 and 64-bit execution, and includes security authentication and authorization capabilities similar to those provided in IHS powered by IBM Domino.

This IBM Redpaper publication describes various features available in IBM HTTP Server powered by Apache to compare IBM HTTP Server powered by Apache with IBM HTTP Server powered by Domino. It also includes advice on how to upgrade from the old to the new.
