(Re)Introducing mod_lua

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

With the launch of the Apache HTTP Server version 2.4, a new module, mod_lua, has been introduced, which enables administrators and users to use the Lua programming language to extend the web servers capabilities as well as write web applications. mod_lua allows you to rewrite requests, add custom authentication and authorization functions, write web applications in Lua, perform caching operations, input/output filtering of requests, advanced request mapping, as well as interact with the httpd API, with a speed that sometimes rivals that of regular modules written in C. This talk will introduce the Lua language, analyze and compare Lua to other languages and modules, and look at the many ways in which one can interact with the Apache HTTP Server with Lua.  If you have previously used perl, python or php for httpd management/scripting, you might be interested in what mod_lua has to offer.
