SPDY means is a new networking protocol whose goal is to speed up the web. It is Google’s alternative to the HTTP protocol and a candidate for HTTP/2.0. SPDY augments HTTP with several speed-related features such as stream multiplexing and header compression.This tutorial explains how to use mod_spdy with Apache2 on Ubuntu 12.04.
1 Preliminary Note
SPDY runs over HTTPS, so we need an HTTPS-enabled web site to test SPDY. Please note that SPDY will fall back to HTTPS if the user’s browser does not support SPDY or if things go wrong, so installing mod_spdy doesn’t hurt your existing setup.
assuming that you have a working LAMP setup, as described on Installing Apache2 With PHP5 And MySQL Support On Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (LAMP)
testing purposes I wil lsimply enable the default SSL web site that comes with Ubuntu’s Apache package
