This chapter introduced you to the Apache HTTPD service that runs on RHEL 7.1. We looked at the
/etc/httpd and the
/var/www/html. With the basics in place, you learned how to configure a server with custom error pages and virtual hosts.
In the next chapter, we will look at SELinux in detail and try to leave you with the idea that you can implement SELinux without affecting your service delivery in a negative way. In fact, the word negative is far from the truth. SELinux will deliver you a secure and robust platform so that you can deploy public-facing services without any fear of compromise, adding Mandatory Access Controls (MAC) to the existing, but weaker DAC (Discretionary Access Controls).
