General server overview

The eBioKit consists of multiple server applications hosted on the same machine. All of the ensembl servers and the biomart server is hosted by different instances of Apache and some of the other server applications just behind a proxy. Due to the coding of the ensembl servers, they can't be behind a proxy server. For that reason, it's only possible to access the servers by their IP and port number
