Running a Web Server

Using Linux, you can configure your computer to act as a World Wide Web server—a computer that delivers Web content to Web browsers running on computers around your network or around the Internet at large.

The Web server software included with Fedora is the single most popular Web server platform in use today and is known as the Apache Web server. To use your Fedora system as a Web server with existing Web content, you must complete the following tasks:

► Ensure that the Apache Web server and the tools used to configure it have been installed.

► Configure Linux to automatically start the Apache Web server each time Linux starts.

► Configure your Linux firewall to allow traffic related to World Wide Web requests.
