LINUX - Apache httpd 配置

Configuring Apache HTTPD

Apache HTTPD 简介

Apache HTTPD is one of the most used web servers on the Internet. A web server is a daemon that speaks the http(s) protocol, a text-based protocol for sending and receiving objects over a network connection. The http protocol is sent over the wire in clear text, using port 80/TCP by default (though other ports can be used). There is also a TLS/SSL encrypted version of the protocol called https that uses port 443/TCP by default.
