Apache 101
(Page 1 of 6 )

Web servers come in various shapes and forms. They run under a variety of operating systems, have varying levels of power and complexity, and also range in price, from zero dollars up to several thousand dollars. The most popular cross-platform web server is Apache.

In this article we're going to take a brief tour of the Apache web server, looking at where to download it, how to install and configure it, as well as how to start it for the first time. This article is intended for the beginner who has no exposure to Apache.

To install and test Apache as described in this article, you should be running a Linux based web server, preferably RedHat. We will be concentrating on Apache with a focus on Linux, however if you're running Windows, you can still download Apache from the site mentioned in the article (Installing Apache on Windows is a simple matter of downloading a setup program which does everything automatically for you).
