Corporate Info Installing a Linux Web server
Nov 11, 2000, 14 :47 UTC (0 Talkback[s]) (958 reads) (Other stories by Rod Roark)

"If you have ever wanted to set up a Linux-based Web server but aren't sure how to get started, this article is for you! In this first of two parts we'll cover the basic steps to installing a Linux system including the software packages for operating a Web server. The second part will discuss server-specific configuration in more detail."

"In addition to the basic components of Linux, we'll be installing and configuring the Apache Web server, a PostgreSQL database server, Perl, and PHP-a server-side scripting language. These are all very popular, robust, and powerful tools that greatly contribute to the effectiveness of Linux-based servers."

"Because we'll be giving detailed instructions and examples, we have to select a specific Linux distribution for this article. For no reason other than its overwhelming popularity, we'll be using Red Hat (version 7.0). You can easily choose another distribution, applying a bit of common sense to translate the examples shown here into appropriate actions."
