To provide documentation on Web Servers.
In computing, a server is a computer program or a device that provides functionality for other programs or devices, called "clients".
This architecture is called the client–server model, and a single overall computation is distributed across multiple processes or devices.
Servers can provide various functionalities, often called "services", such as sharing data or resources among multiple clients, or performing computation for a client.
A single server can serve multiple clients, and a single client can use multiple servers.
A client process may run on the same device or may connect over a network to a server on a different device.
Typical servers are database servers, file servers, mail servers, print servers, web servers, game servers, and application servers.
Client–server systems are today most frequently implemented by (and often identified with) the request–response model: a client sends a request to the server, which performs some action and sends a response back to the client, typically with a result or acknowledgement.
Designating a computer as "server-class hardware" implies that it is specialized for running servers on it.
This often implies that it is more powerful and reliable than standard personal computers, but alternatively, large computing clusters may be composed of many relatively simple, replaceable server components.
A web server is a computer system that processes requests via HTTP, the basic network protocol used to distribute information on the World Wide Web.
The term can refer to the entire system, or specifically to the software that accepts and supervises the HTTP requests.
The CentOS Project
The CentOS Project is a community-driven free software effort focused on delivering a robust open source ecosystem. For users, we offer a consistent manageable platform that suits a wide variety of deployments. For open source communities, we offer a solid, predictable base to build upon, along with extensive resources to build, test, release, and maintain their code.
We’re also expanding the availability of CentOS images across a number of vendors, providing official images for Amazon, Google, and more. For self-hosted cloud, we also provide a generic cloud-init enabled image.
For more information about updates and improvements in CentOS 7, please check out the release notes or the release announcement in the mailing list archive.
Wikipedia CentOS (abbreviated from Community Enterprise Operating System)
is a Linux distribution that attempts to provide a free, enterprise-class, community-supported computing platform which aims to be functionally compatible with its upstream source, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
In January 2014, CentOS announced the official joining with Red Hat while staying independent from RHEL, under a new CentOS governing board.
The first CentOS release in May 2004, numbered as CentOS version 2, was forked from RHEL version 2.1AS.
Since the release of version 7.0, CentOS officially supports only the x86-64 architecture, while versions older than 7.0-1406 also support IA-32 with Physical Address Extension (PAE), with additional architectures supported in CentOS versions older than 4.7.
As of December 2015, AltArch releases of CentOS 7 are available for the IA-32 architecture, Power architecture, and for the ARMv7hl and AArch64 variants of the ARM architecture.
