For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))

4434Public training courses - upcoming dates
I've been presenting a long series of private courses over the past two months - Ruby and Cucumber, Python, Java and C++. From the beggining of March until mid April, I'm training most weeks at our Melksham, Wiltshire training centre - courses scheduled as follows: If you've missed these dates or want ...
4064Apache httpd - a robust, open source web server
Most major Open Source software has a bewildering assortment of levels and switches when compared to commercial software - and that's because there's no restriction on development / people can make suggestions and add in facilities without the bottom line question "And what's THAT going to cost / will ...
2054Tuning httpd / the supermarket checkout comparison
Why do you have multiple copies of "httpd" running on your web server, even though you have only got one process in startup? It's because httpd spawns child processes which allow it to be handling several customers at the same time rather than have them stand in line and be processed sequentially. ...
2077Why put Apache httpd in front of Apache Tomcat
Does it seem odd to you that Apache Tomcat is a web server ... and yet the majority of sites run with another web server - Apache httpd - in front of it. Why do they do it? There's a whole host of reasons! They including better logging, load balancing, security, speed of serving static pages such as ...
2186An FAQ on the Apache httpd and Apache Tomcat web servers, and on using them together
Both Apache httpd and Apache Tomcat are popular web servers - and most people who use Tomcat 'front' it with httpd. We run an Apache httpd course (under Linux / Unix) and also a combined httpd and Tomcat course so we're very familiar with those "Frequently Asked Questions" that everyone wants to have ...
2063Internal Dummy Connections on Apache httpd
Is your Apache httpd log file 'full' of entries like this? xx.xxx.xx.xx - - [02/Mar/2009:05:08:45 +0000] "OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0" 200 - "-" "Apache/2.2.9 (Unix) PHP/5.2.6 (internal dummy connection)" What causes them? Your web keeps a number of spare 'slots' open to process new incoming requests, opening ...
2038Sticky Sessions with mod_jk (httpd to Tomcat)
If you're load balancing with mod_jk, you can put a load balancer worker in your jk properties file, and then have requests forwarded to all the workers that are members of that load balancer. That's a great way to share the load. But if you're running applications that rely on a series of linked pages ...
2016Apache httpd and Apache Tomcat miscellany
When you start a newly installed Apache httpd web server, you may get the following message: httpd: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName It's only a warning! It means that the web server software can't work out what the computer is called; ...
924The LAMP Cookbook - Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP / Perl
It all started on Friday as we came back from the pub. I was describing how we've been, twice, on Neil Bauman's Geek Cruises but never been asked to talk or lecture, even in a "lightning session" on them. A little wistfully, maybe, as I'm a "wannabe" - I would love to get up and deliver a talk just ...
1897Keeping on an even keel
Some (but not all) Open Source products have a numbering system where the second number is even for a production release and odd for a development release - so if you're looking to install one of these products on a live machine for customer use, you should make sure you stick with the even release even ...
576Why run two different web servers
You wouldn't choose to use a Ford Ka as your car for that holiday of a lifetime travelling across Europe, neither would you choose a Jaguar as your idea car for the school run. Yet both of them are perfectly good models of car. Indeed as a family, you might have one of each. Apache httpd and Apache ...
1593Keep the client experience easy - single server contact point
Your company will have one or two web servers ... and you'll be visited by one or two million different clients. So it makes logical sense for all the complicated stuff to go on your one or two machines, and leave your clients with just a simple browser. Have you even got on the phone ... to a utility, ...
1265Apache, Tomcat, Jakarta, httpd, web server - what are they?
If someone says "Apache" to me, that's a warning - a warning to listen very carefully to what they're saying and evaluate what they mean; the term has changed - been used (and abused) over the years and it would be so easy to talk to someone, or train someone, on the wrong product. The original Apache ...
659Web Application Components
When putting a web resource together, we want to keep what each individual user needs on his computer simple - REAL simple - which means that all the work and the complexity needs to be at the server side. I'm running a deployment course that started yesterday and it's only when I started to think "what ...
