10.3. After Installation

After installing the httpd package, review the Apache HTTP Server's documentation available online at

The Apache HTTP Server's documentation contains a full list and complete descriptions of all configuration options. This chapter provides short descriptions of the configuration directives used by Apache HTTP Server 2.0.

The Apache HTTP Server 2.0 includes the ability to set up secure Web servers using the strong SSL encryption provided by the mod_ssl and openssl packages. When looking through the configuration files, be aware that it includes both a non-secure and a secure Web server. The secure Web server runs as a virtual host, which is configured in the /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf file. For more information about virtual hosts, refer to Section 10.8 Virtual Hosts. For information on configuring a secure server virtual host, refer to Section 10.8.1 Setting Up Virtual Hosts. For information on setting up an Apache HTTP Secure Server, refer to the chapter titled Apache HTTP Secure Server Configuration in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux System Administration Guide.
