The mod_bucketeer Apache module provides Apache module developers the functionality to filter the content of web pages or scripts. This module allows developers to manipulate low-level data structures (buckets) within Apache. Apache stores data in buckets and arranges the buckets in a bucket brigade.



We do not recommend that you install the mod_bucketeer Apache module on a production server.

On a development server, use the mod_bucketeer Apache module to allow developers to manipulate Apache buckets to filter the content of web pages or scripts.
