Apache Web Server Administration – Basic

This course is designed to implement an Apache-2 web server. The course covers the installation and configuration of Apache-2 as a secure corporate web server capable of virtual hosting and linking to Java, Perl, PHP and CGI modules. The linking of Apache to a farm of Tomcat servers is presented. The student will understand how modules are used dynamically, to provide a customized server, reflecting their corporation’s needs.
