Apache HTTP Server Mailing Lists

The following mailing lists relate to the Apache HTTP Server project. Users should consider subscribing to the Announcements or User Support mailing lists. Other lists are for people interested in helping with the development and debugging of the server.

Formatted archives are available in several places including the Apache Mail Archives , MarkMail , and MARC. Raw mbox archives for most lists are available at http://httpd.apache.org/mail/. You can also use the mail-to-news gateway offered by GMANE to access most of the lists with a news reader.

Apache Server Announcements

The announce@httpd.apache.org mailing list is used to announce major releases and other important information about the Apache HTTP Server project. Messages are posted only by the Foundation; there is no discussion.

Volume: Very low
Subscription address: announce-subscribe@httpd.apache.org
Unsubscription address: announce-unsubscribe@httpd.apache.org
Getting help with the list: announce-help@httpd.apache.org
Archives: ASF archives, mbox files, MARC archives

User Support and Discussion

The lists and discussion groups listed here are the only place that configuration and how-to questions belong, ever. Every day, users become frustrated, not with Apache, but with how nobody will help them understand how to get started. 95% of the time, it's not for lack of helpers, but for lack of effort and well stated questions.

Before you go further, please read Eric S. Raymond and Rick Moen's explanation of "How To Ask Questions The Smart Way". If you follow their advice, you will discover that these forums have dozens of helpers ready to provide you with guidance on using the Apache HTTP Server! Note: Do not sent your Apache questions to Eric or Rick!

There are now a few Apache HTTP Server Users Mailing Lists available in different languages.

They are described on separate pages:

In addition, there are a few usenet discussion groups in which discussions about the server can be found. These include:

Apache HTTP Server Development Main Discussion List

The dev@httpd.apache.org mailing list is used for discussions about the actual development of the server. All httpd candidates for release are announced to this list prior to acceptance. Subscribers to this list are encouraged to 'test-drive' these candidates just before they're generally released, and provide their feedback in a [vote] thread. Note these candidates are NOT yet released, and should not be carried on announcement channels, until the testing is complete and they have been voted as released on the dev@ list. Configuration and support questions should be addressed to a user support group. This list is only for discussion of changes to the source code and related issues. Other questions are likely to be ignored.

Source Change Reports

This mailing list is used to notify developers and other interested parties of changes applied to the master Subversion repository. As changes are applied, Subversion log messages are sent to all subscribers. (The list name is an artifact of the fact that we used to use CVS.)

Apache HTTP Server Documentation Project

Third-Party Module Authors' List

This mailing list is for people who are actually involved in writing third-party or private modules for the Apache HTTP server. It is a peer support list for programmers to discuss issues surrounding the development of web server modules using the Apache HTTP Server module and APR APIs. It was historically hosted at apache-modules@covalent.net, now closed, but still archived on MARC (see Archives, below).

Volume: Low to moderate
Subscription address: modules-dev-subscribe@httpd.apache.org
Unsubscription addresses: modules-dev-unsubscribe@httpd.apache.org

HTTP Third-Party Module Directory

They are not hosted, not managed and not supported by the Apache Software Foundation, but there is a third-party module directory for your reference. As a user, you can search for modules which might solve your specific requirements, and as a third-party module author you can add the modules of your own creation to the directory. Contact the specific third parties for support of their own modules.

The associated mailing list is now closed. Please use the modules-dev list instead.

Directory web interface: http://modules.apache.org/

Proxy Module Rework Discussion List

This list is closed. Proxy development discussion should take place on the main dev list. Archives are still available for research. Direct all development questions to the Main Development Discussion List.
