Apache Configuration -- Advanced
(Page 1 of 4 )
In this third and final article in our series explaining how to configure an Apache Web server, Michael Swanson covers certain protocols on Apache, how to get a digital certificate, and configuring SSL.
In the past two articles in this series, we introduced some of the basic and intermediate tasks involved in configuring an Apache Web server. We looked at setting up the directory structure, defining from where files will be served, adding some simple modular support, using virtual hosts and setting up authorization and authentication to better protect certain parts of your server.
This article will deal with a couple of advanced configuration tasks. These include serving other protocols on Apache (POP3) and using SSL on Apache to better secure Web transactions. These options will allow you to expand the range of services offered by your Apache server, as well as take full advantage of the modular nature of Apache.
