Installation: This course will first illustrate how to load the Apache package on a Linux server. The course uses a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server version 10 (SLES 10) system. This section of the course is Linux specific, and to a large extent SLES specific.
Configuration: The course will then demonstrate how to configure the web server from the ground up. The course does not teach tweaking of the default configuration but rather the writing of a configuration from scratch. The configuration will be suitable for a system running multiple virtual hosts. This part of the course applies to Apache on any platform.
These notes, and supporting material such as copies of the
configuration files used in the course, are available at
