AFS v7 acp, search, click and content binaries must be integrated in a web server such as Lighttpd or Apache in order to provide a REST interface:

  • The web server performs web-related tasks (http or https protocol for queries and replies, logging, and so on).
  • AFS binaries perform search service related tasks (provide answers to queries, log queries and replies, and so on).

AFS can use any web server software but Antidot recommends the use of a fast, lightweight server such as Lighttpd, which has a lower footprint and scales better than larger servers such as Apache.
