Users Mailing List

This mailing list is a place for users of the Apache HTTP Server to discuss Apache and help each other to install and configure the software. Although some developers may participate in the list, the primary interaction is user-to-user.

Any action taken by the moderators is final, solely at their discretion, and not subject to formal appeal.

Please read the following guidelines before posting to the list.

There is no official support for the Apache HTTP Server:

This mailing list is for users to help other users. If you want professional support, there are a number of companies that provide such services. We do not, however, maintain a list of them, and recommend that you use your favorite search engine.

Ask smart questions:

Eric Raymond and Rick Moen have written a very useful guide to Asking Questions the Smart Way. Do not send Apache questions to Eric or Rick!

Send in plain text:

Many email programs including Microsoft Outlook default to sending HTML or other styled email. Please configure your email client to send plain text so that everyone will be able to read your message.

Send English mails:

This list is an English-language mailing list. German-speaking users may subscribe to our German-language mailing list.

Don't ask FAQs:

Be sure to read the FAQ and search the archives before you post.

Find the best group:

Although we welcome discussion of anything related to the Apache HTTP Server, you will have the most luck in getting problems solved if you ask your questions in the group most targeted to your problem. For example, if you have a problem with a module that is not distributed as part of the standard Apache HTTP Server, you will probably find a more knowledgable group by sending to a mailing list devoted to that module. Some examples:
