1 This is Hydra, a modification of Boa, which supports multiple threads of
2 execution. Boa is a high performance web server for Unix-alike computers,
3 covered by the Gnu General Public License. This modification is based on
4 Boa version 0.94.13, and is currently of alpha quality.

6 Why Hydra? Well, Hydra is a many headed serpent in Greek Mythology, and
7 seemed to resemble fine a multi-threaded Boa. An interesting feature of
8 Hydra is that head, when cut off was replaced by two others. This was not
9 duplicated in Hydra's threads!

12 Configure time parameters:
13
14 --disable-ssl: Disables SSL and TLS support. You must have the gnutls library
15 for SSL to work.
16
17 --disable-smp: Disables all of the thread stuff. Hydra will function just like
18 Boa.
