Please welcome unique Apache web server emulation solution for Microsoft IIS - Helicon Ape! (Ape stands for Apache emulator)

Helicon Ape beta is a comprehensive product that emulates Apache execution environment on Microsoft IIS. It literally implements Apache configuration model (like .htaccess and httpd.conf files) and most demanded Apache modules in a single IIS add-on, not only making IIS compatible with Apache, but also extending its functionality by a number of highly essential features.

Currently implemented modules are: mod_auth_basic, mod_auth_digest, mod_authn_anon, mod_authn_default, mod_authn_file, mod_authz_default, mod_authz_groupfile, mod_authz_host, mod_authz_user, mod_core, mod_env, mod_expires, mod_headers, mod_proxy, mod_rewrite, mod_setenvif, mod_so.

You can check complete list of implemented modules in the compatibility chart and this list is going to grow with new builds.

Key features of Helicon Ape:
�     compatibility with Apache modules� configurations (beta version includes only basic modules but the list will be extending with future releases);
�     unprecedented compatibility with PHP-based applications;
�     user-friendly interface and plain text configurations (no XML!);
�     per-site installation without hosting administration involvement/assistance;
�     powerful and flexible modules for URL rewriting;
�     extensive forward and reverse proxy instruments;
�     comprehensive authorization capabilities;

Benefits from Helicon Ape:
�     users can move their Apache web sites to IIS without modifications;
�     current PHP and other Unix oriented web applications can be easily configured for IIS;
�     flexible user permissions control (as they implemented in Apache world);
�     powerful URL rewriting compatible with Apache does not require rule redesign;
�     reverse and forward proxy features available for your web server;

Helicon Ape is implemented as managed IIS 7 module, but can be installed as ASP.NET module on any ASP.NET compatible IIS version. It works transparently to the server and client and even can be installed on a shared hosting account without administrative access to the server.
