Preface

The webserver is by many considered to be the most critical service of a webhosting service. Most individuals and companies looking for web hosting are looking for a service that allows them to host their websites and files and make them available for download over the HTTP protocol. This guide is intended to educate and enrich you, the NodeWorx System Administrator, on the function and use of the webserver and how it integrates with InterWorx. By default, InterWorx uses Apache 2.x as the webserver for hosting content over the HTTP protocol. InterWorx also supports the LiteSpeed webserver, which gives webhosts more flexibility when it comes to choosing what software to run. In order to get the most out of this guide, the authors recommend that you have experience and knowledge dealing with the following:
  • Linux command line and the shell (typically BASH).
  • Editing text files.
  • RHEL/CentOS-specific ideas
  • Understanding of networking and DNS infrastructure.
  • Familiarity with what TCP is and the HTTP protocol.
  • Knowledge of your preferred webserver software on RHEL/CentOS - this guide is not intended to be a substitute for the Apache documentation.
As always, full detailed knowledge isn’t necessary, but this guide is intended to help server admins understand the integration between Apache/LiteSpeed and the Control panel. It is not intended to explain more fundamental skills such as linux or knowledge of how the internet works. Please feel free to use Google if you find you are missing some bits of information necessary to digest the material in this documentation.
