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.

It is commonly installed alongside Apache and MySQL, which is known as LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP).
In this tutorial, we will show how to checck the installed version of Nginx on a Linux system. Nginx is one of the most popular web server suites deployed across the internet and can be used as both a web server and a reverse proxy server. Knowing your version of Nginx will allow you to check for updates and install new features, compatibility with other Linux or web hosting components, and with ensuring that your current version of Nginx does not contain any published security vulnerabilities.
In this tutorial, we will show several methods you can use to check the installed version of Apache web server on a Linux system.

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.
One of the first – and most crucial – decisions that a website owner will need to make is what type of web server to use. The decision to host your website on a Linux system is a no brainer, but when it comes to web servers, there are a few choices and they all come with their own pros and cons. Among the most popular on Linux is NGINX and OpenLiteSpeed, both well known for their speed and ability to host concurrent connections.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to configure OpenLiteSpeed as a reverse proxy server. A system that sits between a client and a web server (or servers) can be configured as a reverse proxy. The proxy service acts as a frontend and works by handling all incoming client requests and distributing them to the backend web, database, and/or other server(s). The advantages of a reverse proxy become most apparent under high traffic conditions or situations where multiple backend servers are deployed and need some form of load balancing.
