The third class in the WebMASTER certificate program , Web Manager, teaches the skills required to implement a host for a complex and modern website offering. Using Apache 2.4 and/or Nginx as a web server platform, the student will learn how to configure a modern webserver to support the new features included in page-based website hosting and dynamic webapp distribution. Topics such as the secure implementation of third-party languages like PHP, Ruby and Python on a multiple site hosted platform are covered.
During this class, students will create a hosted web environment designed to support the languages and features covered in the class topics and be able to customize that environment to fit specific hosting needs while being able to support the web server's standard implementations. Upon completion of this class, the student will have created a dedicated hosting environment on their own local machines that can be published to the public Internet.
