Azure Web Sites runs on Microsoft's IIS web server rather than Apache. As an end-user you likely won't notice, but if you're using Jekyll or some other platform that is traditionally hosted on Apache or some other open-source web server, it takes a few extra steps to get everything configured.

Do I need to upgrade Percona Server, MySQL, NGINX, Apache, or other server software?

No, not unless you built any of these and statically-linked them with a vulnerable version of OpenSSL. This is not common. 99% of affected users can fix this issue by upgrading their OpenSSL libraries and cycling their keys/certificates.

What about client-level tools, like Percona Toolkit or XtraBackup?

Again, no. The client sides of Percona Toolkit, Percona XtraBackup, and Percona Cloud Tools…

Passenger Standalone (e.g. if you're using Phusion Passenger through the Apache or Nginx integration mode).

You are using Passenger Standalone, but without SSL.

Your Passenger Standalone is behind another SSL-enabled reverse proxy.

Update : Please note that the only thing this Phusion Passenger update fixes, is any potential vulnerabilities in the Passenger Standalone binaries that we provide. Your system as a whole may still be vulnerable because you're running …

VM in an automatic fashion. As an example, let's ask Chef to provision Apache2 httpd for us by adding some lines to our Vagrantfile.

Vagrant.configure("2″) do |config|

config.vm.box = "precise32″

config.vm.box_url = "http://files.vagrantup.com/precise32.box"

config.vm.network :forwarded_port, guest: 80, host: 7777

config.vm.provision :chef_solo do |chef|

chef.add_recipe "apache2″

chef.json = { :apache => { :default_site_enabled => …

ImageMagick's convert. Load time is now 12 seconds.

Turn dynamic content into static content using a static index.html file copied using the browser's "view source" feature. Load time is now 6 seconds.

Added threads to the Apache configuration file. Load time is now 2 seconds. Crises averted.

Because of this quick thinking and quick action the patient survived to serve pages another day.

And in fine post-mortem tradition some of the future changes are:

…is normally 2.5 seconds on shutdown when monitoring a web application, because web servers such as Apache when using mod_wsgi enforce a fixed 3.0 second timeout before the worker process would be forcibly killed.

The agent needs to timeout before then to allow other code time to run on shutdown. In the case of monitoring a one-off script, as in this case, the shutdown timeout can be increased as necessary, as there will be no process manager waiting to forcibly kill the process if it takes …

…4-10 unfortunate, incorrect references to files in either the /skin or /media directories (for which Apache normally would generate a 404 itself), each page request unfolded into a repetition of multiple calls to Magento, eventually serving a 404. Imagine the massacre caused by crawlers/spiders.

With New Relic, we were able to quickly diagnose and address a persistent problem that needed acute acting. It allows for quick diagnoses, not just incidentally but on a frequent, preemptive base. …

In general the technology in use are Java 1.6, JavaServer Pages, Tomcat 5.5, Apache 2.2, CentOS 5, Git, Jenkins, Selenium, and jQuery 1.5 . There are some other technologies which are used outside that stack, but these are the main components.
