Fast Response Cache Accelerator (FRCA) is Now Supported on AIX

AIX 5.1 and 5.2 Fast Response Cache Accelerator (FRCA) feature is now supported in IBM HTTP Server V6.0. For AIX 5.2, APAR IY49388 (fixed in PTF U495388 or ML 52B) is required.


Separate Download of IBM Directory Server (IDS) Client is Not Required

Environment Variable Needs To Be Set When Running With SSL on SuSE SLES 8 (United Linux 1.0)

On SuSE SLES 8.0 (United Linux 1.0), set the following environment variable before starting IBM HTTP Server V6.0 with SSL enabled (otherwise, IBM HTTP Server V6.0 will not start):

export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3


FIPS Support is Now Available

IBM HTTP Server V6.0 provides support for FIPS 140-2. To enable FIPS support, add SSLFIPSEnable directive to the httpd.conf file. Similarly, use SSLFIPSDisable directive to disable FIPS support.

FIPS support is disabled by default.


xlC.rte 6.0 Runtime is Needed When Running IBM HTTP Server on AIX 5.1 or AIX 5.2

On AIX 5.1 or AIX 5.2, make sure that the xlC.rte 6.0 runtime library (for example: xlC.rte.6.0.0.0) is installed before installing IBM HTTP Server V6.0. This runtime library is needed to install and use SSL with IBM HTTP Server V6.0 on those versions of AIX. You can install the runtime library from the AIX 5.2 CD. However, it is not available on the AIX 5.1 CD. You can download it from the Fix Delivery Center for AIX 5 and AIX 4.3 Web site.
