- [Scott] Accurate numbers are hard to come by, but it's safe to say the majority of public websites are hosted on Linux, and of those, the majority run the Apache web server software. I'm Scott Simpson, and in this course, we'll take a look at the basics of how a web server works. Then, we'll install and configure Apache on the CentOS server. We'll explore adding modules to support features like PHP, and we'll have a look at securing the site with SSL. I'll show you how to further protect and monitor your site, and then we'll take a brief tour of other popular web servers as well.
