Excerpt of article text...
Yuma is a web development platform for REALbasic developers. The Yuma Development Server is free and loaded with features that aid in the development and debugging of your web applications. But it is not intended for deployment, especially for high-volume, high-traffic deployments. For those, you'll want the Yuma Enterprise Server. It is a command-line server that is tuned for speed and built for enterprise deployments. While the Yuma Development Server is a web server in its own right, the Yuma Enterprise Server leans on an industrial-strength web server, like Apache, to handle the basic web-serving functions while Yuma is responsible for language processing in the documents that are served. This column explains in more depth what is happening in Apache during a typical request and how it needs to be configured to work in conjunction with Yuma.
Apache configuration is a topic to which entire books have been devoted. So I will only be able to scratch the surface. But I'll cover the pieces that are critical to work with the Yuma Enterprise Server. Apache runs as a central web-serving core, assisted by a large number of modules that each add focused capabilities to the server. Yuma communicates with Apache via the FastCGI protocol. FastCGI is implemented in Apache in the mod_fastcgi module and is the only Apache module required to run the Yuma Enterprise Server. (Others are optional and are discussed later in this column).
