If you are interested in using Caucus on a different platform, please tell us about it.


Web Servers

Caucus works with most HTTP 1.0 compliant web servers available for the platforms listed above. We provide specific installation instructions for the following servers:

NSCA httpd server— http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu
Apache httpd server— http://www.apache.org
Netscape Enterprise Server 2.x— http://home.netscape.com
Netscape Communications Server 1.x
CERN httpd Server— http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/Daemon

Microsoft IIS— http://www.microsoft.com/iis
O'Reilly WebSite— http://website.ora.com

(Note: while we include directions for the CERN server, we specifically recommend against using it.  Our experience suggests it is too buggy for practical use with Caucus, and we cannot guarantee support for sites using it.)

Caucus will work with other standards-compliant httpd servers, but the person installing the software must understand in detail how to define CGI files or directories and how to set up access authorization controlled directories.
