The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • Configuring APACHE Server Directives
  • Httpd.conf File Configuration
  • Setting ROOT Directives
  • Starting and Stopping the APACHE Web Server
  • Logging
  • Virtual Hosting
  • Setting up and Securing CGI within APACHE Web Server
  • Working with PHP
  • Basic Authentication
  • Creating and Configuring a Proxy Server
  • Load Balancing Apache Web Servers
  • Indexing
  • Rewriting
  • Apache SSL
  • Apache and PHP
  • Apache and Tomcat

Programmers, administrators and support personnel who need to understand the APACHE Web Server, APACHE server configuration, and the integration with CGI scripts.

Course Objectives

Course Reviews

Content, teacher and facilities were all great. Pace and level were perfect for me. As a virtual attendee I was worried I wouldn't get as much out of it as being there, but found it absolutely fine and would do it again.

Excellent course, well thought out and a good experience. Hands on and learned about the course and best practice and feel it’s a good grounding to move forward in using Apache and the relevant software.
