Setting Up Web Services

Configuring Apache, MySQL, PHP, Squid, and FTP
  • Sander van Vugt


The Internet is the environment in which Linux has its greatest popularity. Fortunately, Ubuntu Server makes a very good Internet server. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to set up your server as an Apache web server, including support for PHP and MySQL. You’ll also set Ubuntu up as an FTP server and learn how to configure Ubuntu as a Squid proxy server. Although the focus in this chapter is on Apache, you’ll also learn how to enable the MySQL server so that the database administrator can create new databases in it and how Apache is integrated with PHP. Creating MySQL databases is a rather specialized job, however, so I won’t go into great detail about that here.
