10.3. After Installation
After installing the httpd package, the Apache HTTP Server's
documentation is available by installing the
httpd-manual package and pointing a Web browser to
http://localhost/manual/ or browse the Apache documentation available
online at http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/.
The Apache HTTP Server's documentation contains a full list and complete
descriptions of all configuration options. For the convenience, this
chapter provides short descriptions of the configuration directives used
by Apache HTTP Server 2.0.
The version of the Apache HTTP Server included with Red Hat Linux 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, see Section 10.8 Virtual Hosts. For information on configuring a
secure server virtual host, Section 10.8.1 Setting Up Virtual Hosts. For information on setting up an
Apache HTTP Secure Server see the chapter titled Apache HTTP
Secure Server Configuration in the
Red Hat Linux Customization Guide.
