Web Developer 101-Use Web Servers to Build Sites on your PC
What you'll learn
- Setup web developer environments with Apache and IIS Web Servers
- Learn essential Web Server Configurations: Adding logins to websites, virtual hosts, proxies, etc.
- Host websites in a variety of ways locally while they are under development
- 3rd party hosting options for production-ready websites
This class will cover a variety of ways to install and setup web servers on your pc so you can start making websites that can be locally viewed and tested. The ways covered will include:
• Installing an Apache Web Server on the Ubuntu version of the Linux operating system (many custom configurations to the server will also be covered)
• Installing an Apache Web Server included with XAMPP on a Linux operating system (custom configurations to the server will also be covered)
• Installing a Microsoft IIS Web Server on a Windows operating system (many custom configurations to the server will also be covered)
• Installing an Apache Web Server included with XAMPP on Windows (refer to the Apache Server videos on Linux for custom configurations)
After each server installation, I will detail how you can configure websites on each web server with things like password protection, virtual directories, url redirects, reverse proxies, and more.
Additionally, I will cover how to:
• Install website builders such as Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla on both the Apache and Microsoft IIS Servers
• Set up the ASP.NET core and NodeJS web development scripting frameworks on a Microsoft IIS Server
• Publish your websites when they are ready to be hosted the World Wide Web using affordable Hosting options such as Bluehost, CPanel, and Github (free).
• Use a paid web domain from GoDaddy for a website hosted on Github Pages
• Upload your local website files to your hosting provider using FileZilla and CPanel's File Manager
The course will also have several downloadable resources and a lengthy quiz at the end. I look forward to seeing you in the course.
