Summary

The Web is the most visible part of the Internet, and it's built atop HTTP. The most common HTTP server is Apache, and Linux is a good platform for running this server. Other web servers for Linux do exist and can be good choices in some cases, but Apache's broad installed base makes it appealing for both new and experienced system administrators. A default Apache installation on Linux works well, but you may want to tweak the installation to modify the locations of web pages the server delivers, to handle multiple domains, or to perform other tasks. Serving CGI scripts and delivering secure content via SSL are two more demanding tasks to which Apache can be put. Both of these tasks require more extensive changes to the Apache configuration. Finally, a web server is useless without content to serve. You can create web pages by hand, or you can use any of several tools to help in this task.
