Apache, MySQL, and Python can be used in tandem to host and serve a website from a Linux system. This assortment of software is known as a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Python) although sometimes the ‘P’ means PHP, which can either be used in addition to or as a replacement of Python. Apache serves the website, MySQL stores and retrieves information from a database, and Python can generate HTML and related code for the site’s visitors to view.
For every visit to your Apache web server, a line is generated inside of the log file. As you can imagine, the log files can fill up very quickly with visitor information and errors that are encountered, so they become unwieldy and tough to sift through. Analyzing the logs is an important part of administering Apache and ensuring that it runs as expected.
If you are running an Apache web server on your Linux system and find that PHP files are not being executed, there are a few potential solutions that can help with this problem. PHP is a common component of web server setups, and is the programming langauge used by WordPress, the most popular content management system in the world. It is commonly installed alongside Apache and MySQL, which is known as LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP).
In this tutorial, we will show several methods you can use to check the installed version of Apache web server on a Linux system. Knowing the installed version of Apache is important for staying on top of new updates, checking for compatibility with other installed components, troubleshooting issues, and ensuring that your current version of Apache does not contain any published security vulnerabilities. Follow along with the Linux commands below that help us identify the version of Apache on all major Linux distros.
The Apache HTTP Server is a widely-used open-source web server that provides high performance and stability. It supports various Multi-Processing Modules (MPMs), including the Prefork and Worker MPMs, which handle incoming connections and serve dynamic content. When it comes to choosing the right MPM for your web server, it’s important to understand the differences between Prefork and Worker MPMs. In this article, we will compare the two MPMs and explore the key factors to consider when making a decision between them. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced Linux administrator, this article will provide valuable insight into the Apache HTTP Server and help you choose the best MPM for your needs.
When using the Apache web server,
.htaccess files (also called “distributed configuration files”) are used to specify configuration on a per-directory basis, or more generally to modify the behavior of the Apache web server without having to access virtual hosts files directly (this is usually impossible for example, on shared hosts). For these
.htaccess files to have any effect, we must first enable the pertinent setting in the Apache configuration.
Just because you host something online does not necessarily mean that you want everyone to have access to it. For example, if you are developing or hosting an online project which contains private information sitting on your filesystem available only for authorized access only. In this tutorial, you will see how to deny direct download to a file by using an
.htaccess configuration file on an Apache web server in Linux.
This tutorial describes configuration techniques of module the Apache SSL module, which extends the functionality of Apache web server to support SSL protocol. The tutorial will deal with authentication of server (One-way SSL authentication), as well as it will also include authentication of clients by using certificates (Two-way SSL authentication).
As you probably noticed a long time ago, online websites can be accessed either with or without their www. prefix. For example www.linuxconfig.org and linuxconfig.org.
In this tutorial we will talk about how to migrate Apache to Nginx. Apache and Nginx are probably the most used Web servers on Linux. The former is the most ancient of the two: its development started in 1995, and it played a very important role in the World Wide Web expansion; it is still the most popular web server around.
Apache web servers utilize the virtual host feature in order to host more than one website. If you have Apache installed on Fedora Linux and want to run multiple websites, this is the route you will have to take. But don’t worry, Apache makes it rather easy to setup and configure virtual hosts.
In this guide, we’ll go through the step by step instructions to configure Apache virtual hosts on Fedora.
In this tutorial you will learn:
