Web Server

The primary function of Web Server is to provide web pages to requested client. We know lot about basics of web server and web sites, you can get all basics form Wikipedia. So here we going to see about configuration of web server in both Windows and Linux.

We can make a web server with Windows, Linux, Unix, Mac what ever, by use of Web Server Application. There are several web server applications,

Apache Web Server by Apache
nginx Web Server by Nginx INC
Google Web Server by Google
Internet Information Server by Microsoft

Before configure your main server, try the configuration with virtual servers. I'm always use virtual box for my testing.
