The OpenBSD Web Stack

httpd, carp, and relayd

OpenBSD includes a variety of tools for building robust web server solutions. The httpd web server is a lean, fast platform for serving web pages. Relayd allows you to distribute a site's load between multiple servers for redundancy, extra capacity, or both. These two servers, combined with CARP, PF, and other OpenBSD tools, let you slice hundreds of thousands of dollars off the cost of deploying your applications.

This talk will cover:

  • setting up web sites
  • administering chroots for web apps
  • Lua patterns
  • OpenBSD's ACME client
  • OCSP stapling
  • multi-server clusters
  • load balancer clusters

Based on the forthcoming book "Httpd and Relayd Mastery," which should be out just before BSDCan.
