IFS currently has two specialized file systems under it called
QOpenSys and QLANSrv. QOpenSys only has
one distinction between it and the rest of the root file system: files and
directories are case sensitive. A file named
different from a file named
header.html. This is the way a
standard Unix file system works. If you are transferring a Web site from a
Unix machine to Web Server/400 and the Unix Web site depended on the case
of file names and directories, moving the files into QOpenSys and setting
up your Document Root to point to a directory under the QOpenSys file
system would support this seamlessly.
The QLANSrv file system has some advantages and disadvantages for being used with Web Server/400. One advantage is the workstations attached to the AS/400 with an FSIOP and the LAN Server/400 product can easily and quickly access the content on the Web site. However, there are two disadvantages as well.
